10G Bioload - check please!
Edit:Er. I think I put this in the right board. Feel free to move if not really =\
Okay, so I've got a ten gallon, I've got some money finally and am going to get the rest of some basic necessities. I wanted to check with you guys on bioloads.
I know at least two of these are good with your guys' blessing, but I wanted to check on a full setup. I know this is super crowded but I wanted to run it by you guys for a bioload check. I'm thinking about doing an NPT but I've also got a sponge filter I can put in as well to try and keep ammonia down.
3-4 banded loaches
1 betta fish
3? panda cories
1-2 otos for algae cleanup
I've finally found someone that can get me loaches so they are definitely going in the tank. I've read that the loaches will munch on snails and shrimp alike if they're hungry and find them so I'm nervous about that. I mean, I could go with a few ghost shrimp if the loaches have poor eyesight like bettas, but 3-4 banded loaches? They're liable to find them and have lunch. Snail-wise, I've read that Apples/Mysteries can get pretty big so I was more interested in Nerites... Or is there something else one would suggest for algae cleanup?
Yeah, there's a few questions in there, but... I'm going to try and get my airpump ordered as well as a heater online through PetCo due to online pricing, so those will come in in maybe a week. I'm going to try and get the hose, sand and a few other things hopefully tomorrow since I get paid tonight and I'm off tomorrow.
lol, I'm sorry I keep asking about cories, the panda markings are just too adorable and I'm determined to get some at some point here. I know that a 29 would be utterly perfect, but I don't have the money for it plus the stuff I need and we did just get that 10gal.
