    Hi! You'll have better luck if you ask your question under 'fish diseases'.

    Do you have pictures of the ulcer? That would help you get a useful answer as well.

One fantail goldfish can fit in a 30, but it is naturally a schooling fish and should not be left alone. So in order to properly care for these species you need to provide a school and therefore a tank large enough to handle that school.
    I remember my first Innes book (1969), he had so many fish shoved into aquriums just by his theory of using more aeriation, he also did not recommend water changes, just siphon and strain than reuse, WOW!

    Add more neons at least four but I would go with six, the neons will fill more secure and the molly won't be able to single out an individule or replace the molly. Mollies at least in the past had a reputation as potential bullies.

    This site is helpful for stocking~you have to enter tank size and filters, they have menus for selecting brand/size of filters and room for two filter entries and the fish are specific species not simply family and they have helpful footnotes when you enter regarding recommended school size.
    29: Harlequin Raspboras, Zebra Danios, Black Skirt Tetras, Platies, Neon Tetras, CAE
    10: Otos, Amano Shrimp, Cherry Shrimp

    Hello! I hope this is the right place to ask this question. I have been trying for several years to get a long term, happy ten gallon tank. I am aware that this is a somewhat small tank so fish stocking has to be thought out very carefully. The last tank I had was going quite well until one of my fish became aggressive and soon was the only fish left. I have been thinking of a few different fish to put in my new tank but I wanted some thoughts. I like dwarf gouramis, but if I have them I could probably only have those two fish, a male and female, and perhaps one small algea eater if I can find one that is small and can tolerate solidarity. My other thought was a small school, that is five maybe six, neon tetras, also with one small algae eater. The final hope would be to have the gouramis with the neons and the algae ester, but I suspect the tank could not handle this. What are your thoughts?

    i think Lady Hobbs is right, stickies tend to get ignored by new comers. I have been a member for 5 days know and just started looking at the stickies. I think It my have to do with the knowledge of some of your members. I did my introduction post and there were 4 or 5 who did more then casual welcome. Then I started a journal and those same 4 or 5 were right there posting again. I figured if they kept posting I would just pick their brains.
    Any new comer or anyone who has a question about stocking, NEEDS to read this. Even with all the help I have received this stickY cleared up a lot for me.
