Fish, plants, and substrate.
I've been thinking about getting a community fish tank, and I don't know what other fish I should get that will go along well and how many I should get.
Tank size is 40-50 (We have extra fish tanks in storage but I don't know what the dimensions are.)
pH 75~ is my goal
Hardness- up to about 12 max
I'm a beginner and have almost 0 ideas on what I should do but fish I'm looking to get are,
Black Widow Tetras,
and Panda Corydoras
Thinking about adding hatchetfish.
I already have a decent light fixture and should have a really good filter.
Any chance I can make a 75 gallon fish tank filter work for a 40-55 gallon?
For plants I'm looking for some tall plants and some short ones.
Theme is just dark black, to show off the silver of the Halfbeaks, so fish that are silver are preferred.
And as far as substrate goes, I have no idea.
Thank you for your help!
Quick edit: There is a 55 gallon tall tank in storage that I remember.
