    You did a fish-in cycle? ok........

    They're fine by themselves. Not really a social animal.

    Cycled (with the help and advice of my LFS) my tank with Tetra Safe Start, 7 neon dwarf rainbows, 4 scissortail rasboras and the 6 zebra danios. My tank cycled in about 2 weeks (mid January) and has had 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and 5-10 nitrates ever since. I added 1 scissortail rasbora (to complete my school at 5) and 4 albino (golden) pristella tetras (adding 6 more on Sunday for a school of 10). In a couple weeks, I will add 2 more rainbows for a total of 9. Was going to add 6-8 peppered cories down the road, but the scissortails will be staying. They were purchased as starter fish, but I really like them and have decided to keep them. I would like to add a BN instead of the cories.
    75 gal - Smudge Spot Cories, Silvertip & Pristella Tetras, Scissortail & Red Tail Rasboras, Pearl Gourami, Black Kuhli Loaches, Whiptail Cats, Wild Caught BNP
    Dual 29 gals - Diamond Tetras. Harlequin Rasboras, Bloodfin Tetras
    10 Gal - Mr. Betta's Fishy Paradise

    Well, that teaches me to jump to conclusions, sorry!

    Ah yes, safestart. I saved my daughter's shrimp tank when it crashed with a bottle of it. Only lost a single shrimp
    Well. Like I said, lovely fish and you got the room. LAst minute thought, provide some kind of hiding place for it and make sure you got a heater guard
