    Give it a damn rest... they tank has been going for a while... he got it from someone else. If something was unbalanced, the fish would be dead already.

    He never said a single thing that was chemistry related, and never made a single comment that might make a sound, reasonable individual believe there might be a chemistry issue. What the hell is the matter with you people that you absolutely MUST turn every single conversation into some kind of ANN pissing match into which you beat these poor people into buying crap, then yell at them for buying something different from what you bought, and finally accuse them of doing the test wrong because the results didn't match your expectation. Give it the hell up.

    He asked questions about something that might stock well in his tank, and about a particular behavior. Have you considered actually answering the question he asking instead?

    I'm not 100% certain I understand the action you are describing, but the clue of "cloudy water" sounds like spawning behavior.

    This is what I described...

    Social pecking order.

    I missed the part where you said you wanted a bottom dweller only... my bad.

    Not all corys are 7cm... some kinda stay very small, about the same size as a Cardinal. They are not the ones you buy at the local store, you have to search them out... and they can be quite expensive. However, I would think 20 of them would be a rather lot no matter what the size.

    The rams or other such cichlids probably will make your Neons cluster into a tight school instead of swimming willy nilly. It doesn't always happen that way... sometimes people have tougher neons that don't scare so easily. But for a lot of people, that tight school is a desired behavior. So, it depends on what you want to see. I have never kept them myself... the dwarf cichlids are supposed to peaceful and small. Does anyone know if the dwarfs can and will eat neons... or worse... choke attempting it?

    Now im going to admit to something, everything i wrote about me being new to the hobby was a lie, i have kept aquariums for the past 10 years right now i have 16 running, this being the smallest one. I am new to this forum and i have gone through lot's of forums trying to find a good one. The swedish forums are very idiotic. maximum of 20 neon tetras in a 100 liters more then that is impossible every neon will die very fast. Thats not the case. This tank has had it's stock for 7 years never bought another fish to that tank they have all spawned to sustain the numbers. This was all an test to see how people are on this forum and it didn't look good, apart from moghedan. He understood that the tank was good with the nitrates and ammonia, I have never used a single test in my life and never will just a waste of money. In the 70s there were to test yet they kept lots of fish without a problem with just a sponge filter thats something all say today can't me done.

    The stock is currently a breeding pair of Rams 2 apistogramma macmasteri males that i rescued and they are going to go there until they die of old age, and 40ish neons/kardinals.
    This forum is one ill probably won't return to since all here probably have no experience in keeping fish. the 1" per gallon rule is a stupid idea.
    According to it i could only have 29 neons in my tank, but i have kept around 40 with 2 rams for about 7 years? how is that possible? i guess im a god.

    Some of you were helpfull and knew something about keeping fish, some knew pretty much nothing and kept saying my water was bad even though it can't be since my fish are all spawning (apart from the apisto) and are living.
    I only do a water change once every second month.
    All aquarist thinks you have to have the newest most expensive equipment to keep a fish alive, thats not the case.

    Dwarf cichlid will not eat neons or even attempt it, they will however go for the fry.

    To the OP, there certainly is one thing we are all pretty good at here

    Better luck next time
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
