So i think ive decided what i would like for my 30 gallon tank and wanted to run it by someone more experienced.
3 albino cories.
3 bronze cories.
6 female bettas(4 will be moving from my smaller tank and i shall buy 2 more to make the 6)
I really wanted another shoal of fish so was thinking either 5 platies or could i have say 3 platies and 3 of another compatible kind(mollies or neons).
Ive read the albino and bronze would be fine together as they are the same species.
What kind of substrate do you plan on using? Even with the eco-complete, my cories have no whiskers now. The remaining one has been transferred to my guppy tank where there's NO substrate whatsoever.
If you're going to get platies, get 3 of them. 2 females, 1 male. You'll have 6 in no time if the fry don't get eaten.
But I think bettas would think of platy fry as little orange French fries.
Mollies need some salt at all times in their water or eventually they will get sick and perish.
Neons need to be in groups of 6 or more.
Cories need hiding spots & need to be in groups of 6 or more. You could mix 3 bronze, 3 white.
Thanks for your reply.
The tank is already cycling and has sand substrate,i really dont want platy babies anyway lol(had a tank once before that was over run with guppy babies).
Might not get mollies then..is there any other species that you could recommend that is quite hardy and fun to watch?
