hello and welcome.
how come only one serape ?

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.

when i started i did 1 serpae and 2 neons, the neons died in 8 hours. been scared to add anything else since then as my cycle is not complete. i think i jumped in too fast.

hi
well i guess the fish store told you those fish were ok ?
shame really,they were destined to doom,naughty store !
could you possibly take him back and change him for a few danios instead,
serpae are best in a large group,and not a particularly nice personality fish.
ment to say,live plants would help a lot with the tank too.

probably not at this time, its been a few weeks. I have started researching other fish to put in with him once the cycle is complete. if nothing else i will get more serpaes. I like the Emperor tetras and the Brilliant Rummy Nose tetras

i liked the rummy noses i kept once,made a lovely show,
i had them in a group of around 10.
if i have another big tank one day,they will be on my wish list.

will different kinds of fish school together or is it best to keep them all the same?

some may bond due to fear perhaps,like small tetras,but personally
i think same species in groups is best.
