Just wanted to introduce myself and my fishless tank :p I have been reading a lot on this forum and have learned a ton (and been confused quite a bit too
I had fish when I was a kid (many eons ago!)... back when I just dumped the fish and the new water all in the tank together - it's amazing that they all lived!!
The TV in my bedroom died and I decided that a fish tank would be more entertaining and relaxing than another TV, so I purchased a 20L and have it set up with gravel, filter, heater, fabric plants, and some hiding places for the future residents.
A couple of questions - the filter (HOB
- Top Fin brand) that I bought seems to be quite loud - not sure if it's the vibration or if there is something wrong - it seems to be working fine. The filter we have on our tank at work is not nearly as loud.
Also - for the future residents, I was thinking of dwarf gouramis, some ghost shrimp (will the gouramis leave them alone?), snails, ghost cats and maybe a frog? Who would get along or need to be left out of this group?
I need to get a test kit - I have a PetSmart and a Petco nearby - do they carry a good liquid kit? Brand name?
