    it should be fine. Anubias leaves and stems are very tough, so most fish can't chew through them. It's one of the plants that generally gets recommended for tanks with plant-eating fish in them.

    Would a fantail goldfish be fine in my 14 gallon. I have a filter rated for 30+ and I keep up with regular maintenance. I have guppies at the moment but there personality isn't that great. Would you suggest in keeping them or would the tank be big enough for 1 fantail? If I was to keep the guppies how much can I get as I only have 6 at the moment?

    Well can you let me know if a 14 gallon is enough for a fantail?

    No, I would not keep a goldfish in a 14 gallon tank. A properly cared for goldfish can get very large. You'd be better off sticking with guppies in a tank that size.

    Of course, if it's an option, the best choice is always to get a bigger tank!

    Your water parameters will help determine how much you can safely stock. Have you been checking them? If your ammonia and nitrite are zero and you're keeping your nitrates under control, you could add a few more but I wouldn't push it too far.

    You might think about adding some invertebrates like snails or shrimp. They add interest to a tank but contribute very little to bioload.
