- Hah, still haven't gotten those amanos yet?
You know if you want something to eat hair algae, American flag fish is a popular choice.. however some people don't think it's pretty (I think it's a good looking fish). Something a little more out there, and sort of blue ish if you don't find those blue platies. ;)
- Thats the hard part I like them all! I will see if any of the petstores around me have any blue platies as those are super nice looking. I saw Petco had female cherry barbs so I may get them and a few males.
I neeed to check if my LFS has any amano shrimp, I dont want to order them online as shipping and almost retail value suck for the wallet. I am gonna see about getting my light hung and put higher so the tank wont be getting huge amounts of light causing alage.
- I don't know which on I want is the problem. The plagues I wouldn't mind them giving birth, as the other fish should eat them, which will be good food. Do any of those eat or nibble on hair algae as well?
I could also do a bigger school of neon tetras or rummynoses.
- Oh my gosh so sorry I forgot to reply!
You have 4 girls, yes?
I'd probably do 5-6 platy ladies, likewise 5-6 cherry barbs. I like the barbs more myself, but with the platies you could get a few different colours in there. Just remember that all the girls will probably be pregnant when you get them and could be giving birth for a few months, so you'd have to try and keep that under control!
