Back in the Water

Greetings from Portland, Oregon.

My friends are moving, so they offered me their 10-gallon tank and three neons who are about three years old. I had fish as a child and a tank several years ago. I thought it would be nice to have them again and my 10-year-old is pretty excited.

I kept about a third of the water when I brought them to my house. Kept the old filter for the time being.

We've added one male guppy (Zeus), two female guppies (Hera and Minerva) and this odd little male guppy (Benedict Cumberpatch) the the Wet Spot says looks like a hybrid. Two teeny-tiny pygmy cories (Mortimer 1 and 2), and Ukia the snail.

Are we maxed out now?

Welcome to the forum! I am from Walla Walla.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but thankfully they both led to fish stores.

The neons need a twenty gallon tank and a school of six
The cories need a school of six
Then you'll be maxes out once the neons are rehomed
It's not a dumb question if you ask it.
Too many tanks? GASP! How could that be?
