Hello everybody. My name is Chris and just recently I have finally decided to get back into keeping fish. I had a tank when I was much younger, like 12 years old and a 15 years ago, and had no idea what I was doing. Those poor things were probably so overcrowded.
Anyway I just recently purchased a 36 gallon bow front tank. Assembled everything a few nights ago and the tank is looking good. Decided to go with artificial plants over planted. Know planted is better but figured I would take it one step at a time. They can get kinda messy.
Now even though my LFS
suggested a fish in cycle I have decided to go with a fish less and am about 3 days into the process. I've been attempting to do some research on what fish I will eventually like to have in the tank. I know the fish less cycle can take upwards of a month but I'm pretty excited and would like any suggestions/criticisms on the fish I plan on keeping.
2 dwarf gouramis (1 male/1 female)
6 harlequin rasbora OR 6 cherry barbs (can't make my mind up)
3 panda Cory
2 Bosemani rainbow fish
Looking into the potential size of all these fish I think it's about 1" per gallon. Looking forward to being an active member of the forum and thanks for any help/suggestions.
