  1. Default Stocking ideas for a 72 Litre Tank.

    I was just wondering if anyone help could me decide what to put in my 72 litre tank as I'm a bit unsure about how much fish it could take

    So that's about 20gal in US measurements - is it a long tank or tall tank?

    What kind of filter do you have? Stocking ideas will probably hinge upon what kind of fish stores carry locally and what you like. I could recommend some but you would need to find fish you like and then see if you have adequate space.

    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

    Usually the small tetras are a good bet, available in every store. Neons, phantoms, glowlights, etc. You can always do a limited number of guppies and/or platies. If you are new to the hobby, read up on cycling before getting any fish, and stick to "beginner" fish like I mentioned. More experience could see you happy with a dwarf cichlid, cories, etc.

    Dimensions do matter, too. Mine's tall, so that kinda stinks for bottom feeders and fish who love to swim fast.
