New 94L aquarium
hey all, im new to this forum.

i just bought a 94L (not sure how many g) currently at the moment it is cycling.

any ideas on what to stock it with? im not sure on what fish go well with other fish and so on, so any help would be appreciated.

maybe get a pair of gouramis maybe honey gouramis as they only get small....patys or guppys but given the chance they wil breed a lot or some corys for the bottom of your tank :):):)

or a shoel of tetra :):):)

i like gouramis neon tetras are nice aswell.

Would having live plants be better then fake plants? If so, what do i have to do to maintain plants? do they have different food? Whats a better substrate for them? gravel or sand?

I have gravel substrate, then i seen some pictures of aquariums with sand, which i think looks better.. but any way

94L = 24g :-)

It would help to advise you best to know what water you have, some fish need hard water, others soft; putting softies in hard water and vise versa creates problem. Any chance you're going to buy a liquid test kit soon to let us know (which you'd need for the cycling of the tank anyway)?

Are you planning on planting it with live plants?

sam215 01-27-2010 08:24 AM

getting a master test kit tomorrow.
im thinkng of having a few plants what fish are suited for hard?
and what fish suited for soft

Oh my God there's like 3 gazillion fish LOL for either soft/ hard and that fit your tank size :-)

I'd say we'll wait, see what pH and hardness you have; that in combo with the tank size will at least narrow it down some.

What kinda fish do you generally like that you've seen at stores before (small, big, school or individuals....)?

i like a variety, going more for a community tank. i know my ph is 8. dont the the gh or kh though. ill get the test kits for them tomorrow.

Can't wait to see what you end up with. It's always exciting putting a new tank together.

sam215 01-27-2010 08:43 AM

yeah it is :)
My last attempt failed miserably, i had gold fish in another tank, they got ich and died..
Hopefully this lot goes better :)

Ich is very treatable. I'm sorry you lost your fish. My husband has goldfish, they're adorable.
