I already have a 29 gallon going, lol. My parents won't let me go larger any more. I am thinking of doing a low tech planted in the 10 gallon with ember tetra's and a school of neons in the 20 gallon long.

I would also sell and go larger sell all 3 than get something around the size of the three you sold . just say your down sizing to one tank than break it to them that it equals the same amount of water as the 3 you sold but now it's only one been there done that once upon a time

I also can't afford a new tank even if I sell the 20 gallon which isn't mine, it is my sisters and my 10 gallon no one will want. I am unemployed

problem here is you have to make sure they are not of the same genus because they will mate and eventually you will have all butt ugly brown grey shrimp

I just won a 20 gallon in a raffle and made it a low tech planted and put a pair of gardneri killifish in there. I love it.Click image for larger version
