Not researching when I started. My ten gallon had the following: 1 male betta, 3 clown barbs, 2 tiger barbs, 1 serpae tetra, and one pleco. My poor betta was so harrassed that he ended up jumping out of the tank during one water change. I didn't realize it until I got back from school a few hours later. What made it worse was he was behind the aquarium stand and I couldn't reach him. I ended up having to get the shop vac out and get him that way. Thanks to this site I learned that I was overstocked and took back the fish. All except the serpae. I know he should be in a bigger group and tank but he was my first fish and haven't had the heart to get rid of him.

I just looked up at my 30 and tried to imagine that... Wow. Then again, my 30 is still somewhat overstocked with my 3 fish... But I have super filtration and keep their water pristine, and they are still small. They'll get an upgrade soon enough anyway. But wow. 64 fish...

Holy Cats! You must spend a lot of time doing PWC to keep your tank in check! Do your serpae tetras nip your long finned species and your bettas?
