Hello All

Hello, I am glad to help and to be helped, here is a little about my tanks. I have owned tanks for about 6 years. (surprising to some considering my age of under 15) I started out with a 40 gallon community which I knew almost nothing about at the time, now I have a 10 gallon saltwater and a 55 gallon saltwater both going to be turned to fresh after a year and a half with "reef keeping" more like on the brink of failure. A 55 gallon lake Malawi cichlid tank looking great will post some pictures later. And a 40 and 10 gallon freshwater community both doing great.

Hope to help- Noah

Definitely an interesting combination.

1. Watch out guppies reproduce like wildfire lol.

2. How does the Betta behave? They are quite Territorial.

3. Kuhli are much more active and comfortable in groups.

I wish I knew more about saltwater. Maybe one day I'll step to the salty side.
Hope this helps

Ropefish also get almost 30 inches long. I have one myself in a 75 gallon planted. Love it to death.

My guppies have had babies who have either been eaten or are bidding in the rocks going to be eaten by the up side down cat. My Betta is pretty peaceful as long as there lots of other fish in the tank before you get a Betta you should get one. My LFS has a really nice 3" bright orange one. I have had saltwater for a year and a half and trust me it is hard to keep up with. I had a little 6-line wrasse (look it up if you don't know what it is) who ended up taking a nap on my bed and was flushed. It was quite funny.

Also looking at a crowntail.

Why I asked is because bettas really are a hit or miss in community tanks. 9/10 times its a miss and aggression sets in. The only way I see a community tank working is with fish larger than them that also won't eat them. But again it's with motoring aggression. They don't call them fighter fish for nothing!

Do you think I could get more fish in the 10 gallon. Also I don't like keeping the same fish in different tanks which is why I have interesting combos

IMO you are pretty stocked even after moving those two to the 40.
