Right now the stock is
1 platy
3 danios
1 common pleco.
One of the teachers bought fish to put in there but they all died except these 5.
The stock that was bought when the tank was first indtalled has been gone for a long time.
I am open for ideas for stock.
I know eventualy the common pleco is going to have to be rehomed but for now he is ok.
I do how ever need ideas for a nice community tank kid friendly that wont cost alot to stock it.

The teachers and children were all very full of thank yous while I was working.
The janitor even handed me an extra key to his closet because its the closest place with a sink to the tank. Everyone has been very nice and thankful. That just makes me feel all the better about working on this tank.
The children comming thru looking to see what I was doing and the teachers allowing the kids to ask questions and let me answer was sooo cool.
I am now "Mrs fish Lady" at the school lol. And thats fine with me.

Wow what a great thing you are doing!! Best way to show your kids to be kind to others and help any way you can is to do it yourself! This makes me wanna cry!! what size tank? If you are close to me I've got some sunset and wag tail Platies and 2 angels I am willing to give up. I'm in Indiana and with the wether I couldn't ship them.

Thank you! I thought the same thing as far as teaching my kids about helping out. My husband was upset that the school had not been taking care of the tank properly. I told him they didnt know what to do. The teachers were trying but they didnt know exactly how.
He is supporting me all the way.
Unfortunatly I am in Virginia and I agree with you unless you have the proper means of shipping its not a good idea to try to in this weather. I really appriciate the thought tho.
