Relocation

Hi,

I am 14 (as of today), and will be relocating from South Africa to London (my parents were forced to because of their jobs) anyhow, I will be in tear as I have to leave my fish and tank behind (1x Betta 6x Glowlights in my BiOrb 8 Gallon) as I don't think they would survive and enjoy the 17 hour flight+3 hour transit+2 hour drive to the new house from Heathrow.

So I'm going to be buying a whole new (and hopefully bigger) tank for my room in the new house. I had my original for 3 years with no casualties and think I spoil my fish too much. In my new room I have a small space. Probably about 1.5 metres where I can put a tank. Any tank size recommendations and tank makes etc. Also need a filter/heater/thermometer everything.

Also more importantly, what fish? I LOVE schooling fish that are small like my glowlights and like neons

Thank you all

1.5 meters? That more than 48 inches? Cause I have a 90gal that is 48 inches long. You could do something that big and have amazing possibilities and an even more amazing tank

Stocking ideas? For a 90 gallon?

Also important is that i have fish who help to clean the tank as I travel ALOT such as algae eaters and shrimp

Thanks
