Bought the kids an Interpet aquaverse 65 litre tank for Christmas as they wanted pets. Have been looking at fish with them for years. Started the tank in Jan, we have gravel substrate, few ornaments and a couple of plants and our bog wood (including heater\filter) . From the net learnt about fish less cycling, this site having one of the best guides I found. The tank already has a community of codepeds and ramshorn snails courtesy of the LFS
. Sure they have came from the Java moss.
The snails have done a sterling job of cleaning the tank, went through some funny coloured algae, and all the brown muck off the bogwood. I think I did not soak it long enough, could not wait to put it in tbh.
Now we are literally at the end of the cycle, waiting to confirm two readings 24hrs apart of 0 amm, 0 nitrite ( testing api fresh water kit)
I just need a bit of advice on stocking levels?
We have hard water, so was thinking of
5 platies, 4 guppys, & 5 celestial Pearl Danios
Would this be over stocked? Are the CPD a bad idea for such a new tank?
Your help would be much appreciated : )
