New guy

Hi, I'm Ben... New the the Aquarium world, just purchased. Wall mounted 35ltr tank, here for some tips and many questions.

Added 6 neon tetras to it today (my first fish) but they all keep hiding below the filter out of view lol.

When can I start adding more fish and different breeds to the tank?

Hi Ben and welcome
you did cycle the tank, right? If not you will need to monitor water parameters and let everything get established before any more fish added. 35L litre is about 10 gallon, so not many more can be added really.

If you can get a water testing kit it should tell you if its safe to add more fish ☺️

Probably not, like I say I'm new to this. Just going on a friends advice to leave the water 2 weeks with the filter on...

The tetras are tiny and are all hiding in one corner? Surely I can add more fish at some point it looks empty lol

Just given them a pinch of food and they are all swimming around happily now all over the tank, guess they were hungry

Hey Ben

If them measurements are right it makes the tank 21 litres or 5.5 us gallons.
Aq advisor is a good website for telling you how stocked you are. I just put your details in and it says you are 35% stocked.
With the tank being so narrow I would imagine you would have to stick with small fish similar to the neon tetras but you should definitely be able to get some more in there
