Just set up my 40gl!!
My first fish, a blue VT named Baloo, was getting cramped in his 1gl bowl. So I got a 10gl about 2 months ago. Once I saw he's friendly with other fish, upgraded him to a 40gl and got more fish.
4 glo fish (2 are a couple months old, 2 new).
10 neon tetras (5 are older, 5 new)
2 cherry barbs
3 albino cory catfish
Think I want another 2 cherry barbs (all males) and another glo fish to have all 5 colors.
Have a powerhead sucking through two rather large sponges, as well as a heater.
I put the whisper 10 filter from the 10gl into the 40gl to help cycle the tank faster (fish in cycling). Will take that out soon.
How's that stocking sound as far as loading? They're all small fish, so It seems alright, but there's a lot going on in that tank.
Also, it seems the corys keep bumping into baloo. I don't think they're actually biting him or anything because he doesn't get angry or retaliate. Is that something others have come across?
