I have had fish for 1/2 year .I'm a college boy who loves fish. I currently have a 20 long with an Aquaclear 50 installed and a heater. The fish inside are 4 Orange Von Rio Flame Tetras, 1 Female Swordtail, 3 Peppered/Leopard Cory Cats. The tank is set at 78-79 F, the Ph is kept at neutral(7.0). I currently believe the ammonia is 0.25 but because of my slight color blindness sometimes its harder to determine the color the nitrites and nitrates are zero. I currently have a gravel substrate and all artificial plants. I have lost 4 Von Rio Flame Tetras, 2 Dalmatian Mollies, 1 Male Swordtail, and 2 Peppered Cory Cats. I have determined most of the deaths are from the LFS
I Used to go to "Petsmart" and now shop from a smaller family owned store.
I intend to get a couple more Orange Von Rio Flame Tetras 1-2 Peppered/Leopard Cory Cats once i figure out which one it is. I also am in the process of setting up a 30 tall which will focus around Pygmy Cory Catfish. I'd love to hear from anyone about advice or anything involving anything above. I always love learning and increasing my knowledge so i can better help my fish.
