A clown loach is a good addition to your 26g.


Yeah. I should have done my research before buying a fish. Now I take in my phone and if I see something I like I look it up, then ask questions.

Oh man... used to work at PetSmart. Three different stores on and off for some years. The last store I had the unfortunate luck to work at: Everyone was on a different page. The managers didn't care enough to get all associates on the same page with knowledge, and would be petty and hide or throw out any information I gave to them! Anywaaays...

Some great things I had to hear from my customers that other associates in that store said was "Okay" to do.

- 10 goldfish in a 10 gallon tank, barely a strong enough filter. To that customer asked me, "Why do they keep dying??"

- Keep Bettas in tiny bowls because they're "afraid" of big spaces.

- Keep a fancy goldfish in a 2 gallon tank "to start."

- Let the filter run for a few days before stocking your tank.. which usually meant "as many as you want" to most people.

- It's against policy for feeder goldfish to be given out to parties or weddings, except occasionally when someone wants to buy 50 of them and supposedly has a 40 gal just in case no one wants to keep them. Uggh 40 gal will not fit 50 goldies!

- Plecos in a tiny tank... @_@

- Neons or other schoolers in a pair, or by themselves.

So infuriating!

I remember some bad advice I got from I friend. I'm usually great at researching but all of his other advice had been sound so I followed it. A pleco with my goldfish. And the nipping began..... thankfully I caught it at the first few nibbles and put in into a floating breeder tank until I could rehome him.
He's in a 29gal now with an albino corydora. I think he's much happier

The diversity of some of these angelfish advice posts... One person says 4 in a bowl, another says 1 per 50 gallons.
