Alright, no one jump down my throat on this.
Im not an idiot, dont treat me like one. Dont tell me how awful I am for considering it or some crud, or that I know nothing.
Chances are, Ive commented on your threads and given you at least some/a lot of your info if youre new, so dont be dumb. I know what Im doing, and Im looking for solid, experienced advice or resources on this topic.
Because I know people are gonna jump on me -__-;
I have two five gallon tanks, a hex and a standard shaped one. The hex holds more than five gallons, more like 6-7. Regardless.
I could divide my boys (like it used to be) and free up a tank.
Ive been researching and have found many aquariests with sororities (mini sororities lol) in their 5 gallons. Some members have had success, too. I know it is usually said that 10 is the minimum, however, Ive looked into it and have found consistent results with 5's and 3-4 females, heavily planted. No other tank mates, and Id cycle the tank before hand. My filter is pretty strong and can handle a decent bio load. It'd have mostly live plants, because thats how I do.
It would be heavily (HEAVILY) planted with hiding spots overkill. If I could, Id look for spawn sisters. If it failed, Id separate and return them, no harm done. Id be home all summer, so pft. Ive got time to watch them
If any are hurt, Id of course nurse them to health before giving them back to the store. Theyre pretty good about returns.
Im not even sure my mom will allow me to use my second 5 at home, but she very well might, which is why I ask. Im going to look into it more, but Im curious about what others have done and what others who know something about this
Sorry for the hostility, but I get jumped on a lot by whiny pantses and I feel like a disclaimer is best, because if you whine, I call a wambulence and yell back. Huurrlol.
