Alright, I have officially become obsessed with aquariums. I started out with a betta in a gallon bowl. Then I found this site....and now I now have a 5 gallon filtered/heated tank for Wentworth and a 10 gallon split filtered/heated tank for Money and new aquabid betta, Sushi (and am considering splitting a third time for a 3rd betta). I have ordered live plants, good quality food, look at what you guys are doing to me!!
My boss at work has a 20 gallon that she is just going to give me. Comes with hood, filter, lights, heater, the works!!! I really don't have room for a 20 gallon, but how can I refuse a free 20 gallon set up?
So as much as I adore my bettas, I want to try some other tropical type of fish as well. I absolutely love the look of loaches, they are too cute! Is a 20 gallon big enough for a few of them? What other type of fish would you recommend for a beginner? Can I mix different type of fish? I know a 20 gallon isn't huge, so I don't want to make a rookie mistake and put too many fish in, or the wrong type of fish with each other. Thanks for the help!
