Ok so I am new to the hobby and I will say I'm addicted. Below is my current tank and then I have asked a question about my purchase of a new tank any help would be appreciated.
So here is the info about my tank:
26 Gallon Bow Front
AquaticLife Dual Lamp Light
AquaClear 50 Filter
AquaClear 30 Under Gravel Pump
90 Days Old
Last Water Change 4/27/11 (Weekly 20-25% changes)
Weekly Tests Done on Thursdays Results 3/31/01
10 (Med/Hard according to my test kit)
Chlorine 0 ppm
Nitrite .05 ppm
Ammonia 0 ppm
3 Baby Tiger Barbs
2 Albino Barbs
3 Full Grown Adult Green Barbs
3 Adult Blue Gourami's
1 Clown Loach
So how do the numbers look?
I am really debating what size tank I should upgrade to as well as what kind of community I would like to have. I am really looking at a 75 - 90 gallon rectangle shape tank. So my dilemma is do I move all the fish, some of the fish, none of the fish and start fresh in the new tank. So I was thinking of doing Gouramis and Angelfish. I have read some say yea and some say ney. So I am not sure what to do. I was thinking I could move the gourami's to the new tank and just keep the barbs in the 26g and add to the school.
Any thoughts on a Community set-up that has some size and color? I am trying to go by my local shops advise but I read don't trust all local fish shops.
So Can somebody help the new addicted guy out?
Any help I would appreciate!!
Thanks for the advise ahead of time and I look forward to becoming part of this community!!
