    Sorry, I missed the PS. If you did a fishless cycle and you're doing a first time stocking, then you can fully stock the tank. If you do a fish in cycle, then you want to introduce fish gradually to give your BB a time to grow to accommodate new additions.
    If you have an established tank and are adding additional fish to your existing stock, again, add a few at a time to give the BB a chance to catch up.

    + 1 to FM, if your tanks cycled, than add all the fish. I got here a little late but there are a couple of more fish that I would like to suggest if they are availble to you.

    One is the Ember tetra, it stays small and is very hardy and adaps well to harder water conditions.

    Another little beauty is the Flame or Von rio tetra another great beginer fish that adaps well to most water conditions.

    You might also look at Black neons, Rosy, and Lemon tetras. Just want you to know there are alot of options out there.

    +1 to that. Steeler is a walking/talking fish encyclopedia.

    So far, you've received a lot of great advice in here. Please don't ever hesitate to post your questions. Everyone's got an opinion, and while each side has merit, I'm the only one that's right. So, when in doubt, listen to me. ;P


    Kidding of course... but really, just listen to me. They're all wrong. KIDDING!

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?
