Now then..

Hello folks,
I'm Rhys from Yorkshire (UK), recently set up a tropical tank as I was given a freshwater tank with accessories. Decided to bung a heater in it as I didn't want boring goldfish (was for the kids lol).

I used to run the aquatics department of a garden centre donkies years ago - but was mainly ponds and pond fish. Been a long tome since then - ironically most of the fish we have are from the aquatics shop that lives there now which is completely different and is an external company.

Did a google and this forum was the first that cropped up so I joined, hope to trawl though when I get time and read up on bits and pieces.

Hope to post more and get advice etc but for now just saying hello!

Hello Rhys and welcome to TFK

What size tank are you setting up? Any thoughts on what fish will be going in?

We've set a tank up, approx 65 litre.
Have the following..

5 five Banded Barbs
3 Dwarf Gourami
4 Assorted Guppy (had 5 but one snuffed it)
3 Trilineatus Corydoras

Plus some assorted plants suitable for a single light with no nitro injection (first time I'd ever heard of this lol)
Got a couple of bits of swamp wood with plants attached. Been going for a few weeks now.

SWMBO wants more fish but I don't want to stock it too fast or overstock it.

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

You mentioned a 65 litre aquarium, which equates to < 20 US gallons. If the fish you list are all in there now, I would not consider any more.

Thanks Byron, I was wondering how many I could put in there - considering they've got to grow. I doubt very much we'll get any more. Cheers :)
