Hey all! I'm somewhat new to the fishkeeping game. I had a 10 gal
. community tank back in high school, and got back into the game this past December.
Currently, I've got a 20 gal
. community tank with some lovely neon tetra, harlequin rasboras, albino cory cats, and a very lovely honey gourami.
Also new this month is a 29 gal
. tank I'd like to add some cichlids to. It is currently the home to three very lovely yellow labs. I have a couple of newb questions, though:
1. the nice man at my LFS
told me I could fit 12-15 smaller fish into this tank (crowding the tank to curb aggression). would this be a good idea in a tank this size?
2. based on the picture, will the decorations I have in currently provide enough cover for the fish when they are fully stocked? I have some river rocks from my yard I can pile in there if needed. would I need to treat them in any special way to get them tank ready?
