So my goldfish finally have a good home. Now the question: what to do with the extra ten gallon? Currently i have a ten gallon planted sorority, an empty ten gallon that used to hold two large goldfish, and a planted 55gal community with 5 betta girls.
Here is what i was thinking:
move the goldfish ten into storage, get a 20gal long or a 30 gallon and expand the sorority
-pros: i can move the girls from the 55gal into the new sorority tank, and then get glass catfish for the 55gal. then move the second ten gal to storage and just have the 55gal and the 20 long/30 gal. Also, they only make plant friendly lights in 18 inches and up, so i can also upgrade the lighting.
-cons: moving the sorority is going to be a GIANT pain due to the plants and shrimp.
turn the extra ten gal into a nano tank, with tiny fish/shrimp.
-pros: this something i have always wanted to to do.
-cons: If i do this its going to be a planted tank and they don't make plant friendly lights for anything smaller then a 20 gallon (or 18 inch lights)
Turn the ten gallon into a divided space for a couple males.
Pros: i get to get a couple males
Cons: i have limited space for the males, and couldn't do the planted tank i want with adequate lighting.
