Hi Brian

Welcome to the addiction. I've been thinking about getting some snails and now I know what to name them :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

People have been saying for years that I'm just a little squiarlly.......times like these I know they are right!!!! Regarding the stocking have you gone to Aqadvisor site yet I have found it to be very helpful..once you plug in your tank size and filter you can add and subtract fish..its pretty nifty.... good luck

hello and welcome to you and your family.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Have you already got the fish on your list or is that what you are considering getting? I'd research further the black skirts, serpae and tiger barbs. They probably prefer larger groups and the serpaes and tiger barbs can be nippy and can have aggression issues. I'm not familiar with rainbow sharks, but I see "shark" and "neon tetra" and I think "diner" and "dinner". I'd check into the shark's eating habits and whether any of your peaceful fish will end up dinner. A bigger group of cories might be better. Swordtails and platies can interbreed - what sexes have you got? You might end up with babies.

Again... my kids are lovin all the Gary the snails
I have these fish right now and all seems well. The rainbow Shark is the biggest wimp in the tank.... he got scared by my shrimp LOL.
Funny you should bring up babies...... my 5 gal now has about 20 black molys. Seems the one we got at the pet store was about to pop.
I am realy liking the corys and they are good at cleaning up after the other guys soooo a couple more of them would be good.
It seems that everyone hase claimed their own little area and mostly just chase each other,
then there are the corys.... they go wherever they want.... like "scuse me.. you gonna eat that"
I love the fact that the kids are torn between watchin the TV or the fish tank.
