Do you plan way ahead?
 
I was sitting here looking at my 60 gallon tank thinking... When my Angels die, I would like to try some hatchet fish. Not that I am wishing any ill will on the Angels and I am sure they will be here for a long time yet but... I just like some other types of fish and would like to someday have them.

I have a 25 gallon that has only 5 male Guppies that are getting up in age and 2 Black Skirt Tetra that also came from a nasty dirty tank so I would suspect their life would be shorter as well. I am starting to think "what would I want in that tank?"

Are Hatchet fish too much in a 25 gallon? I would like at least 10. The only other fish in there are 5 Oto's and then I have a few assassins as well.

What are the assassins?

Inga 02-12-2012 04:59 PM

Assassin snails. They eat pest snails. assassin snail, sale, Anentome helena

You're not the only one who does that. My extreme planning ahead comes in the forms of what tanks I will have when I move into a house/town house. I plan to keep my current tanks with the same species for a while as I thoroughly love all the species I have now. But I have a short list of species I would one day like to keep and possible future tanks planned out for them.

I actually thought about what I would do with my 55 gal when my goldfish die, and I came to the conclusion that there is nothing else I would want to keep other than goldfish in a 55 gal.

I plan ahead aswell. I've wrote down the types of fish I want to keep on paper. I review it constantly.
