Hey everyone I am new to the forum and I have a few questions.
I have a 60 gallon tall tank with white silica sand as a substrate. I have a few pieces of driftwood in my tank, a pile of slate in the corner and two clay pots.
Lights- two high output bulbs, each 54 watts totaling 108 watts. 4 feet long.
Filter- whisper 60 power filter
Plants- a few Anubias Nana, Java Fern, Amazons Swords, and planted Anacharis.
Fish- three Angels (bodies are all about the size of a half dollar coin), 4 glow light tetras (yes I know I should have a few more, haven't been able to get to the pet store), 2 German Blue Rams, 3 bristle nose plecos, 2 guppies and a snail.
The tank is about 9 months old and I do about a 20 gallon water change once a week. The dimensions are 4ft x 1ft x 2ft. And my stand it's kind of small inside.
Parameters- ammonia, nitrates, nitrites 0. pH- a little below 7.
Lights are on for about 9 hours a day. On a timer. Fish are fed once a day, either with flake food or live black worms.
My questions are:
1- can I put more fish in it?
2- I've had German Blue Rams before and I know they can be hard to keep and I've even had them breed before in my tank but they never last for some reason. Any other tips? And I want to be able to breed them.
3- I want to switch to a canister filter and my stand is pretty small inside, any ideas for a small canister filter for this sized tank that might fit? (And I want it to be hidden).
4- my plants don't seem to be growing very well, I used some plant tabs about 3 months ago can I put some more in?
I think that's it, sorry for the large amount of info lol
