New Home for BARBAROSSA, CORY, DORA and 10 Neon Tetras
« on: July 11, 2010, 05:46:17 AM »

Hi Everybody,

today I aquascaped the 34 l tank, gave it new life after Hump and Hep moved out. Cleaned everything out and "redesigned" it with dark gravel, rocks, plenty of plants. Conditioned the water, adjusted the pH.
Now it is cycling.

My fingers are wrinkled and I almost grew swimming skins in between my fingers.

Will post pics in the next hour or so.... Grin

BARBAROSSA  will be our Siamese Fighting Fish, we already reserved him at the pet shop. He's dark iredescent blue and the fins do have red edges. He's a beauty for about AU$ 18.00

CORY and DORA will be our 2 catfish.

And then we need about ten names for our Tetras, LOL  Grin  .... yes I AGREE, I'm crazy, LOL

like: Anette & Ted, Emily & Ed, Nicola & Ned.... need 4 more

Right! An important question, did you think about stocking density in your tank after adding all these fish?
With smaller tropical fish you should ALWAYS calculate 2 liters of water per 1 cm of grown fish length. It's different with shoaling fish though since they're usually smaller, so with the tetras you could count 1 liter per 1cm fish length. So check the "maximum" length of every fish you're intending to keep there, and check if they'll all fit!

You don't want the tank overstocked again |:

Thanks Nossie, I'll check it out for sure I don't want this to happen again. Only now roughly calculated it should be fine without pushing, but I'll have a more exact calculation.
Geez I'm so glad to have you guys on here with all those good tips and advices. You are so great!  Wink

LOL, Andiy, yeah why not, it is such fun... but I won't be able to tell them apart  Grin... my hubby said what about Itsy, Bisty, Teeny, Weeny... etc.... just thinking all other fish in our home do have names and the "poor" Tetras shouldn't... I just love it sometimes to be a bit crazy... LOL  Wink

Well two collective names haha Tongue Like Brent and Lucy. Haha nah I understand you wanting to name them all. I would do the same thing and really try somehow to identify each (this is why I won't get any Tongue)
