20 Gallon Upgrade - Stocking choices!
It is time to upgrade, I have my tank cycling. I wanted to use my minnows to cycle, but I don't want the minnows in the tank when I'm done stocking - the minnows will be staying in the 10 gallon with a new betta.
So right now I have for the 20 gallon:
-spotted cory cat
So I will definitely be getting at least 2 more corys so that I can be at the minimum of 3.
I wanted to get something colourful to fill up the tank. So I either get +8 more tetras so I can have +10 for schooling. Or what I was wanting to get; some cherry, gold, tiger barbs. I'm not entirely sure about how much they need to school and whether or not you can mix the different types.
I also wanted to get some large rocks to give my betta a nice and high resting place close to the surface, and to spread my java moss over some real-estate. However I don't have 30 bucks to spend on a ROCK, gawddd. So maybe if I look in my yard or possibly see if there's any I can steal from a neighbor, they just built a giant house... so I assume there's some bedrock or mountainous stones I can clean/sterilize?
So any suggestions? Getting an upgrade is exciting!
