So glad to have found this site! I am a twenty-three year old young man who has turned into a complete tropical fish enthusiast! I have been running my 20 gallon tank for nearly a year now and have been really enjoying it.
I have a traditional 20 gallon tank and would like to add some fish to the family. I currently have 1 young Bulldog/Rubbernose pleco, 1 adult female platy, and 3 two month old female platies. I do 25-50% water changes on a weekly basis. I run my tank at 79 degrees and add a tablespoon of aquarium salt every other water change.
I would like to add 2-3 balloon mollies and possibly a few swordtails to the family. My only concern is if these fish would all get along well with one another? I have read swordtails can be quite aggressive. Ideally, I would also like to have a male or two in the tank as well.
Would it be possible to add 3 balloons and 2 swords? I am extremely open to suggestions on any pairings of fish, I would just like to keep my tank as peaceful as possible.
Any advice/knowledge would be a great help! Thanks so much in advance!
