New to the hobby 5 gallon non tech tank
I am new to the hobby and have a 5 gallon tall decorative tank that my husband helping me cycle. It had a top pump driven filter on top with a waterfall feature built in ( Petco Special). I have fake rock substrate with 3 Anubis attached to a branch to hide the hose for the bubbler and the pickup tube. My husband took a filter from his established tank and put it in the filter up top. We are doing a fishless cycle by adding ammonia. Today was the first day seeing the nitrites spike. I am going to run the cycle out completely before adding fish.
I understand it is a small tank, I would like suggestions on fish that I can put in there to maximize the fish to water ratio. I really like schooling fish. what are your thoughts?
