Hi and thank u
I got a lovely 10 gallon tank as my birthday gift (tetra brand) which comes with a hood,light and a power filter(aqua-tech 5-15) last month. After giving it a lot of thought,i decided i m up to the fish-keeping hobby So i did a lot of research and made a list and started getting things. I got a topfin gravel vaccum with siphon,a mercury thermometer and a slim heater-15W from petco coz it said it was for 5 to 15 gallons and it looked pretty cool rather than the submersible cylindrical ones. Much later,i read that it is not advisable since it does not have the option to adjust temp but well,i found the info after i started using it
I have some plastic plants and 3 decors (which my fishes seem to enjoy hiding in!)
I did my nitrogen cycle using Jungle care conditioner,bacteria tablets and ph stablizer tablets for a week and did my partial water change twice a week. Every time i did a pwc,i used a fresh set of tablets. I waited for another week before i went to petsmart to have my water tested. The guy there said it was perfect,so i went ahead and bought 3 glofish.
Later on the same week,i returned one of them(out of pity,he was bullied so much and was not eating coz of the other 2) and got 2 more glofish and a female platy (since i read glofish do well in a group with minimum of 4)
I m planning to but 1 more female platy(the one i have now seems lonely) and 1 female albino cory next week(though i m not sure if she ll do well on her own)
I continue to do my pwc twice a week (since i know adding 5 fish in the first week is a lot) though i dont know if it is necessary??
Hoping everything goes well !
