Fish Tank Size
I have a budget of £50 and looking to get a fish tank
I have seen two tanks
a 26 ltr 26L BOW FRONT AQUARIUM FISH TANK SET FILTER/LIGHT BLACK on eBay (end time 28-Nov-10 20:13:39 GMT)
and a 34ltr 34L AQUARIUM FISH TANK COMPLETE KIT FILTER+LIGHT SILVER on eBay (end time 02-Dec-10 15:00:31 GMT)
Which one is better?
I am also considering getting a heater and getting some tropical fish as listed below.
Is that too many for the above tanks or adequate?
2 Zebra Danios
2 Gold Danios
2 Leopard Danios
4 Assorted Platys
2 Swordtails (Pair)
3 Cherry Barbs
3 White Cloud Mountain Minnows
6 Neon Tetras
As I am limited to £50 and the above not suitable any suggestions as to a bigger tank for less than £50 ?
That is way too many fish for either of those tanks and most of those fish aren't suited to that small a tank.
Do you have room for a bigger tank? Why not try to get a secondhand tank? A lot of people buy tanks and sell them when they don't succeed with fishkeeping. You can get a good deal on a tank in good condition but you might need to be patient to find something to suit.
If I were you, I'd put off deciding on a tank until after I'd read up on the fish I'd like to have. There's no point getting your heart set on something and then finding out that your tank is too small.
Tanker is right. That's WAY too many fish for a 6 or 8 gallon tank (had to get google to do the conversion :oops:). I'd spend some time with Craigslist or the local version thereof. I got my 55g tank (approx. 200 l) for free. It's not in the best shape. It has some scratches. But it was free.
I'm not looking at the compatibility factor with your fish right now, though you do have some issues and I'd do some reading. If you wanted to keep that number of fish in that general size range you'd be looking at something in the 100 to 250 l range. I think (without knowing your market at all, or the exchange rate perfectly) that you could find something like that used for 50 pounds if you shop around some.
