In a 30gallon tank could I have a pleco, a Ram Cichlid, a couple cories, a couple swordtails and maybe a few zebra danios?
Bolivian ram could work, but the German blue Ram would not be good fit with the fish you mention due to it's need for soft warm water,(80 to 84 degree's F) and the other fishes you mention, requiring hard cool water(swordtail's, Danios).In a 30gallon tank could I have a pleco, a Ram Cichlid, a couple cories, a couple swordtails and maybe a few zebra danios?
I would do One Male Bolivian Ram as the Cichlid as said above the Blue Ram is a bit harder to keep.In a 30gallon tank could I have a pleco, a Ram Cichlid, a couple cories, a couple swordtails and maybe a few zebra danios?
A city water report will sometimes have this information.I have no clue what the parameter is. I don't know if my grandparents know? No the tank is not set up yet, I still have to clean it. Thanks for the info! I am still in the process of thinking about what to put in the tank.
Yes,The water is well water. We haven't had a problem with it. She has a Betta that has well water and he is thriving!
If I were you I would take a water sample to your local pet shop and have them test for your water hardness. Get them to tell you the gH and kH. They will do it for free.How much would the Bolivian Ram cost me? My grandma is buying me these fish and I'm sure she won't want to spend a lot. So if I got 6 cories, one pleco, a ram, some neon and bloodfin tetras about how much would that be?
To clean the tank use Vinegar and water. Just let it soak and then scrub away.My local pet store is over an hour from my house and we rarely go every 3 months. I believe our local walmart has test strips but I don't know about the Api thing. The walmart also has I believe ammonia test stripes but I would have to check again. I was hoping to have the tank cycled. I still need to clean it but I have no clue how yet.
Yeah my walmart sells fish too...pisses me off. Lights are on 24/7, water is dirty. tanks is dirty *gross*.My grandma has tried to grow plants in the tank and they always die in a couple days. I have no clue when we will to to the pet store. Sadly my walmart does sell fish. I have some floating live plants and an other type I don't remember. I think it was hornwort but not sure. I will clean the tank that way. Thank you soooooooo much for helping me!!!!!
If your grandfather does not know the parameters, you can always take a sample to the LFS an hour away to get it tested. It would help you decide what fish to keep and bring your stress level down.My walmart ALWAYS has dead fish stuck on the filter and it makes me sad!. They even sell bettas, they always seem to have something wrong the poor things. I have started trying to clean the tank last night. My grandpa might know the gh and kh but he is not home at the moment. Now I think I just want to put a whole bunch of live bearers in the tank. I really have no clue now of what I want in the tank. *sigh* I think I'm streesing myself out over this delema. We will see if I get fish or do nothing.
