    Default New Tank Help


    0 Not allowed!
    I have a new tank that I just sat up. It's well planted and has a few things in it also.

    Here's the size: 3 feet long, 1 foot wide, 15inc deep.

    I have 4 mollys, 2 guppys and 1 Algae Eater in a 10 gallon tank. I'm going to be moving them over to the new tank.

    So question is. How many more fish can I stock in this new tank? And which ones will work the best with what I have?

    I would like some shrimp if I can.. I had two ghost shrimp but they lasted about 2-3 months and then out of no where died.. Dont know what happened there.. Maybe bad luck?

    What type of algae eater? Some can get big and aggressive. Mollies really do better in brackish water. I'm too lazy to calculate size of the new tank so if you could tell me how many gallons it is that would be great.

    Also, you will have to be careful with the guppies. What is the male female ratio?

    EDIT: It is 28.05 gallons. Figured that out.

    I'm using aquarium salt in the 10 gallon. They seem to be doing really well.. I just want the new tank setup really well and nice to look at.

    Sorry didnt see all the post :-P

    Sorry I dont remember the type of algae eater... I've had it for a few months now.. Cant remember. I'll have to look at the pet store next time I'm in there... I do remember they said he needed a 20gallon. I bought it when it was only like 1-2inc long.

    The guppies are males... And the mollys are females..

    I do know that the gups will not leave the mollys alone.. They are always messing with the biggest molly..

    Something really active and colorful. I want to walk by and stop in my tracks to watch the fish swim all over the place... I'm thinking to maybe leave the mollies in the 10 gallon and move the gups to the bigger tank? Or the other way around... I'll be keeping the 10 gallon going. It's sitting on the stand beside the other tank.

    If you wanted something really active and colorful, I would just get more guppies, or a schooling fish like rasboras and Killifish. Look into it.

    Those Killifish are really pretty! Will they go good with the gups?

    Unfortunately not.
    But rasboras and tetras are.

    So the gups and mollies would have to stay in the 10 gallon? That sucks...
