Talking howdy!!! im new to the community and egar to learn more about my fish!!!!

hello all my name is shauna,
im 20 a mother to 1 son.
i have a 29 gal tank at the moment and in the process of upgrading to a 55gal at this very moment.
I have 3 african dwarf frogs, 2 ghost catfish, 2 khuli loaches, 1 parrot fish, 1 iridescent shark, 1 bala shark, 1 loricara whiptail catfish, 1 neon tetra and 1 corydoras catfish.
I have always been around fish and other animals as well (this ranges from cats, dogs to hermit crabs fish and lizards too). my mom started out with a 10 gallon tank with just 2 angelfish. i was always fascinated with them growing up. when i was 15 i bought a betta and from there on i had fish once my betta passed then i moved onto a 10 gal with my iridescent shark that i have now the tetra and loaches once i upgraded to the 29 gal i added the rest the most recent being my 2 ghost catfish and the bala shark. im now in the process of upgrading to a 55gal tank! which im so excited about but have my worries also! sop any help or advice is wonderful about anything at all pertaining to the tank water fish everything basically! thanks everyone who looks and respond i look forward to learning and talking! also pics on the way in the next day!

I see you have 1 neon tetra. Neons, as do most Tetras do best when kept in groups of at least 5-6 min. Neons especially. The first addition I would do is get about 5 or 6 more Neons.

By parrot fish: do you mean a blood parrot? I'm not sure but you may have a species here that isn't well kept with the other fish you mention.

yes she is a blood parrot fish. they all seem to do well with each other ive had her for quite awhile now. however she does chase my cory around a bit. thats only if he tries to go into her territory then she chases him out also i did have 3 other tetras that i lost not too long after i got the first 1 but i was intending to buy a few more once i get the bigger tank set up.

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.
