  1. Default Is this a good stocking level for 30g?


    0 Not allowed!
    I have a new 30g, 36x12x16, with an Eheim 2234 filter. It's almost done cycling so fish time soon! Here is what I have in mind right now. Any feedback?

    looks good to me.
    One thought on the otos - a few more would be better but you might want to wait to add them after the tank is more mature and there is some natural food in the form of bio film and algae for them to eat. You could always feed algae wafers (the cories most likely will need a little supplement too) but the larger cories might beat the smaller otos to it.

    I would increase both the corys and the otos, but like was said, I would wait for the tank to mature before getting the otos. One of the ways you can make sure your otos get enough to eat is to culture algae. You can grow algae on rocks in glasses of water on the windowsill, and rotate them in for cleaning. While corys may eat algae wafers, they don't eat algae itself so that will be left for the otos. Too, some people report their otos not eating algae wafers, so it's good to be able to provide them with the real thing.

    + 1 to both posts about putting the Oto's in last, they and the Cory's should go last. Otherwise besides increasing the Oto's your stocking looks good.

    Oh yes, I will not be just dumping all these guys in there at one time. My plan is to add a group every week or two starting with the upper fish and adding the bottom feeders later.

    More Otos would be cool. I wasn't sure how close the stocking levels are on that web site. So maybe 8 each of the Corys and Otos.

    Great advice on the oto's except they will need to temperature to be a bit higher than the white cloud mountain minnows. In fact all the fish will want the temperature to be higher than the minnows comfort zone, some a little and some a lot Personally I would take the minnows out and increase the numbers in the remaining species.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Good point. Forgot about that. I was thinking three schools of small fish would be nice but two larger groups are cool too. I'd rather have lots of little fishes than a few larger ones. How about this?

    the minnows should be fine up to 24 C. as a matter of fact mine are were at 26C for a few weeks due to the spring/summer heat and they still
    were vibrant and breeding. they are coldwater fish but like goldfish they are very tough and seem to be eurythermal, that is, they adapt easily to a wide variety of temperatures.

    Neons are a cooler water fish than most "tropicals", and most corys (including the bronze) prefer cooler water as well. Too, according to planetcatfish, the lower range of oto's preferred temp range is 70 degrees. Really, the one that "doesn't belong" is the glowlight tetra as far as temperature is concerned.
