Hello all! And a couple of questions.
Hello! My name is Ben, I'm pretty new to this, so please bear with me. And thanks for any and all help in advance.
After much searching, I decided this was the forum for me since everybody seems to be very respectful, knowledgeable, and understanding.
I've really wanted a tank for sometime. But since my place is rather small, I decided on the 15gal column tank from PetSmart. Would have preferred a more common(longer and larger) tank but this seemed to fit my needs.
Since getting it a month ago; ditched the filter for a Fluval C2 and have a brighter light system coming soon. Currently is stocked with 6 mollys, a guppie, 2 mystery snails, and 6 ghost shrimp. Oh' and a dwarf frog.
All seems well as far as my inexperienced mind can tell. Ammonia is close to .25 the fish seem to be fine. Been doing a 10% water change every two days.
So my questions. Or if I should post these else where, please let me know or move them. Thanks!
My heater is rated for 15gal put since it is a deep tank(13"wx13"dx19h) should I go larger?
Picked up 2 balloon mollys today. Asked for both to be males. Seems one is a pregnant female. Should I be worried about the fry screwing with the water condition?
Last question. I plan to finish the tank with either a male beta or 2 dwarf gourami. Would either be a better choice?
