Your thoughts on my tank(s)
So i finally established all the fish i want in my tanks and i want to knw ur guys thoughts on them
My first tank is a 14 gallon biocube freshwater
all the water levels and chemistry on my tank are good and i do a weekly water change of about 30% and i also add some nourishment supplement for the plants so they can grow..
its heavly planted..
i have some:
for fish i have:
6 neon tetras
1 whiptail catfish
1 mystery snail
Question: Can i add anymore in my tank? If so what kind of fish do u guys suggest...
For my next tank i have a 10 gallon aqueon tank with a divider.. so its 5 gallons on each side
fish i have in one side are:
1 ghost shrimp
1 female betta
1 dwarf puffer
1 ghost shrimp(just testing out if the puffer would be aggressive towards the shrimp) So far hes alive :)
Question: Was wonder with my betta can i add another fish or would adding another on overstock it..
For my dwarf puffer is their any other fish i can add to it or should i just keep it solo or add another dwarf puffer?
Please reply and give me you inputs :) good or bad are welcome
for dwarf puffers should i have plants or are the aquarium ornaments ok?
For my tank with my 6 neons 1 mystery snail and 1 whiptail catfish was wondering if a dwarf gournami will do well with them
I agree that the 10g is done as is, fish wise. DP's need more space for 2, a full 10g minimum. Also, I would not add to the Betta side. And yes, puffers absolutely love plants, they occur in plant-thick waters.
The 14g has some options. One is another couple of neons; six in the usual "minimum" but more is always better with shoaling fish, so if you like the neons you could get 2 or 3 more. Alternatively, with the 6 neons, another small shoaling fish would work, something like Ember Tetra or one of the smaller Cyprinids (rasbora), a group of 6 (or more if very small like Embers, 7-8 of them). I would not add a Dwarf Gourami. If you want gourami, the ideal would be a group (3-5) of the pygmy sparkling Gourami. Check the profile.
Thank u byron.. Was wondering why wouldnt a dwarf gournami work? And i was looking for the sparkling gournami i couldnt find it at any LFS was wonder do u knw of any good online store to buy fish?
Not sure what your plans are for the whiptail catfish. Those guys go on to be about 6 " in length and hence 14 gal would not be ideal for him.
You can add 2 or 3 more of the neons to make it a bigger group. If you do move your catfish to a bigger tank, it will open up more options.
If i were to move the whiptail what would be ur suggestion on a substrate fish or on another fish?

If you get the true Rineloricaria parva as in our profile, it is fine in a 14g. While it may attain 5-6 inches, it is so very thin you hardly notice it. I've had this fish for many years, they are interesting and very peaceful. And they eat common algae, which is a bonus.
The dwarf gourami is problematic. Check the profile.
How about a pair of cape lopez lyretail killifish? They're small, (under 2in), peaceful, not shy and beautiful to look at
