Question Are these compatible

Hello

I keep buying more decorations for the tanks so they look perfect , but now i am ready to start to add my fish.

I have done a bit of research on them all.

Are all these fish ok together?

BIG TANK

Orange Molly's x3 ( 2 Female )
Albino Corydoras x6
Dwarf Pleco x1
Silver Sharks x3
Royal Pleco x1
Angelfish x2
Dawani Catfish x3
Black Neon x8

SMALL TANK

Red Platys x4
African Dwarf Frog x2
Butterfly Pleco x1
Guppies x5
Neon Tetras x10
Netrite Snail x1
Apple Golden Snail x1
Silver Dollars x2
Clown Loaches x3

All of these fish are small to medium.

So they are not big clown loaches.
They are baby ones.

What is the best algae eating pleco?


Thanks for reading.



I am 13 years old...

I have spent hundreds of pounds on stuff and still am not happy with the tanks i have.

I am going to make a new thread with more up to date information with the tanks and dimensions.

I just try my best but i keep constanly moving oraments and injuring fish by accident

then this is leading the death

I need some HELP!

I do lots and lots of water changes and water tests.

I do try so only postive critism and not sarcastic or funny answers.

I am all open to new things...

I will post new ideas when i am back home.

Then hopeuflly you can help with all the information i post on.

Also until the silver dollars get a bit bigger then ill move them into the 100 litre tank.

But i have given the bala sharks to my dad as they keep flying around and knocking my angelfishs antenna.

I try and do a new thread soon.

Thanks for everyone who has commented.

First of all, how big are the tanks and are they cycled?

Hi, could you give us the capacity of the tanks? Big and small are too general.

We meant how many gallons or liters does it hold? If you don't know you could give us the dimensions and we can calculate it...

You should place fish into the tank size they would require as adults. In the case of clown loaches, that would be, oh, about 125 gallons.

As the others have asked, we need to know how many gallons or dimensions.

I just see a red X in your post above, not sure if there's a photo there or if the others can see it.

Did you cycle these tanks? If so, what method did you use? What are your current readings?

When you hit the "reply" button, down below the white block is an option for "manage attachments". That will help you post photos.

Those are both small tanks, maybe 5 gallons and 20 gallons? Could you please measure them and post the dimensions.

I see you already have something in each.

Could you please respond to our questions about the cycling of these tanks and what your readings are?

You won't be able to fit much into either one unless you stick with really small species.

The big tank is 100 Litre

Not sure what that is in gallons...

Also they are cycled been running for about 3 months.

All the levels are fine.

I am just trying to plan for the future.

I am getting a 110 litre tank in about 4 months.

So some of the bigger fish will be transfered.

So, the big tank is about 25 gallons. Hey, I was pretty close!

Please humor us and tell us what your readings are and not just "fine". That word means nothing when it comes to the health and well-being of your fish.

Well I have had some issues with Ammonia.

Ammonia was 8ppm

And nitrate 180 ppm

But now it is all very trace

Nitrite 0
Nitrate 0
Ammonia .05
PH - 7.4

Ammonia needs to be 0, it poisons the fish

Imo those stock lists are too big especially the 5 gal one. And you're not acknowledging the ammonia problem.

Nitrate shouldn't be be zero. You either need to get more if your plants are causing it, or you're not shaking the tests well enough.
