Hello, everyone! It's been a few years since being on this site. But, as I am now planning a new Community Tank, I couldn't think of a better place to ask these questions!
I recently got a new 20 Gallon tank, complete with Filter and Heater. I plan on cycling it soon, but I would first like to know what fishys I want to stock it with.
At first I was thinking of adding 7 Neon Tetras, 5 Male Platys, 5 Albino Cory Cats and 1 Dwarf Gourami. Firstly, would this be overstocked? If not, how many more fish could I add before reaching capcity? Would all these fish get along?
I understand with all male Platys there could be some issues, which brings me to my second option. Having both Male and Female Platys. If I let them have the babies in the open water, would all the fry be eaten? What solitary predator fish would eat the fry, but not harm the parents? I always have wanted Neon Tetras, would they work in this set up, if so how many?
What other stocking ideas do you think would work? In whatever community I end up with, I absolutly want Neon Tetras. I would also like more colorful fish, but no guppies.
Thank you guys so much for your help! It's good to be back on the forums
