._______. Lol I dunno, both Sakura and OFL both said that my setup was fine to be honest, you're the only one to disagree with them.
I haven't bought the fishies yet, this thread was the get some opinions on what fish to get, and how many.
I don't get why cories need 10 gallon each, they're tiny, probably around one inch? And they've matured. . . My friend had for them around 6 months? She says they haven't grown since she got them. .
Also neons are small too? 6 neons in a 15 gallon by themselves kinda spoiled. .
My 10 gallon is going to be heavily planted with about 10 ~ 15 plants, so some ammonia will be sucked up, if you didn't read some of my previous posts. So yeah. . I might overstocking a bit.
But a Betta to a 10 gallon by himself. . Yeah not gonna happen, the reason why I got a ten gallon was to let him swim with other fish.
Snails crap a ton. Bad for bioload.
Cory Catfish can actually get 4 inches, mine is. Plus, if your is healthy, they like to swim. A lot. 10 gallons is too small for a 4" fish.
Neons are VERY active fish. They swim a ton. They also need EXCELLENT water quality, which, even with tons of plants, you will fail to provide. Even if you has the best water in the world but had them in a 5g, they would not thrive or even survive.
Please, PLEASE, do not get them. Why not get 3 Betta fish? But if you don't want them, here are some excellent, fun, and cute additions that will thrive in your set up!
- 2 African Dwarf Frogs
- 4-5 Ghost Shrimp/Cherry shrimp (I recommend Ghost)
- And maybe 3 or4 Endlers.
