Thanks for your help but what fish will be suited to go in the tanks once thats all done

How many gallons is 50 liters equal to, sorry, don't know measurements!

natman16 07-11-2012 12:35 AM

10.9g so could say 11g

You could put some schooling fish in there such as tetras and dwarf cories. Some shrimp and plants. Guppies.

Are you set on having it a Coldwater tank?

natman16 07-11-2012 12:49 AM

Thought they was tropical

natman16 07-11-2012 01:20 AM

Yeh for the time being i know there is wider range for tropical

Finding a stock for a Coldwater 13 gallon (50L is roughly 13.2 US gallons) can be a bit harder to find apposed to starting a tropical tank. Have you looked into barbs? Some of them can be a coldwater fish.

In uk its all gold fish i have read about ppl putting koi n sturgeon in tanks and thats not fair on the fish a fish of that size should be homed in a pond even when they are babies they would out grow tank before you know it

What about white cloud mountain minnows? They are pretty and like colder water.
