Hi! Welcome to AA! Fishkeeping is awesome!
What kind of tank do you have? Any fish yet? Did you cycle?

Thanks all

I have a 90L - 20gallon tank with 2 angels, 1 ghost knife, 1 glass catfish, 1 flying fox, 4 rainbow tetras, 2 silver dollars, 1 kissing gourami, 2 flame gouramis and 2 neon tetras (use to be 10 but i believe this death rate is normal). I've lost 1 kissing gourami (from a dodgy shop i think - i'll not go back), 1 glass catfish (wrong food, floating flake works really well for my other fish and he fun to watch eating - a bit like the old space invader game) and a flying fox (in too early). I haven't tested my water but am doing a partial water change every other day now.

Welcome to AA! wow you have to many fish for such a small tank. The first thing they will ask if your tank is cycled. Im guessing not. But good luck.

somewhere i read a clculation on the surface area of the tank versus the length of fish and i'm only two thirds of the way there. my fish are 23 1/2" long in total and the tanks supposedly allows 34". Here's hoping because i have nowhere else to put them!!!

Your ghost fish will grow to 50cm alone. Your angels grow ti be 10 cm. They have a rule that say a gallon per inch of fish. But this is not a rule that applies to all fish.
