New member new tank
Hi all, have got a 30 gallon tank that I can't sell, used to have turtles but got to big for tank so unfortunately had to go, the tank currently has a rock effect wall on the back and a ramp which I want to ideally remove, any ideas on how to with doin as little damage as possible ? If I scratch it a little on the back wont be the end of the world cos will probably be putting a background on anyway. So that's the tank issue, have got heater, and filter already and it's a pond filter so easily big enough to keep the tank clean.
Now for the fish, have been looking and i know some might be rare and expensive but that doesnt matter right now and have done calculations from what people recommend on what I can put in but I always thought the fish would only grow to its surroundings ?
Anyway here's what I have come up with
1 tiger Pleco/zebra Pleco
3 tiger barbs
3 electric green globarb
2 panda cory
1 angelicus botia loach
Most are peaceful, tiger barbs are semi aggressive, would they be ok ?
What are people thought on both the tank and the fish ?

6.5 is a nice value.
You're not taking social needs into account at all so bad idea.
Tiger pleco is l066? NOT a beginner's fish and likes it a bit warmer.
All the other fish need bigger groups than this.
You could do a nice tank around tiger barbs and botia kubotia.
