I am planning to set up a community tank, but since I know nothing about community tanks I would love any advice and comments people could give me. Here is my planned setup:
5 Female bettas
5 Mollies (probably female)
5 Guppies (probably male)
20-30 gallon tank
Filter for the tank size (or less, for the Bettas?)
Thermostatic heater for the tank size
Gravel, decorations, silk plants, live plants
Siphon tube/gravel vaccum
Will probably have tank cycled first
Holding tank for during cleanings
Best tank size?
What speed should the filter be?
What kind of filter/filter media should I use?
Should I have an airstone?
How often should I do cleanings/partial water changes?
What should I use to control algae?
Thanks in advance for your input!
