What are some good stocking ideas? Whats the biggest fish i could get for it (just wondering). Also, i was debating on whether or not to get a crayfish, but that will depend on all if your suggestions, thank you!
You really cannot have big fish in a 20 gallon. My thoughts would be a big group of tetra's. I think glow lights would be nice.
x18 Glowlights Tetra
x6 Juli Corydoras
x1 Betta or Bolivian Ram
Then maybe a Orange CPO Crayfish. They get to be 1.25 inches I believe. No other crayfish or they will kill your fish.
If you want bigger fish then I would suggest any of the dwarf cichlids. There are tons of them! Currently I am head over heels for the golden dwarf cichlid (Nannacara anomla), and the bolivian ram (Mikrogeophagus altispinosus). You could do 1-2 of these and a small school of tetras or rasboras, but they should be the smaller, torpedo shaped bodied ones not like a black skirt tetra (that is a no-no in a tank that size). But the glowlight tetra would be a great example, although 18 with other fish is a bit too much in that tank. A max if you do the cichlids would be 10. You could also put in a smaller pleco such as the bushynose pleco, which are cute little guys:)
Those are just some options but there are THOUSANDS of different species out there that you could choose. Go look some up and we can help give you a thumbs up or down:D
I love the rams, harlequen rasboras, and bushynose Plecos, i would like all of those! But just out of curiosity, are bettas compatible wirh the rams?
No, bettas aren't compatiable with cichilds of any kind. before anyone can really say what you can keep in your aquarium, we would need to know your water parameters. Your Gh, ph etc. Reading this article my Bryon will also help http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...quarium-73276/
m not close (at least i dont think) to having al the plants and rocks in yet, once im done with that and planning out how it looks ill test the parameters because im not sure if they will effetc the quality
Heres what i was thinking though once water parameters are right:
4 lampeye tetra
5 harlequen rasboras
2 german blue rams
and any type of bottom dweller?
FYI - the tank is a 20 gallon tall.
That is not a very good stocking for those fish. I would do a big school of 10+ of one fish and 2 German Blue Rams. No bottom dwellers if you have rams due to when they breed they will be super aggressive.
