I joined this site as I am a complete novice to keeping fish, however my 7 year old daughter wants to keep fish but wasn't content with a goldfish in a bowl, she wanted tropical fish and in particular neon tetras. So anyway I guess this will mean i need to get myself up to speed of all requirements as i will play a big par tin the up keep. I suppose it will be good daddy daughter bonding time
I have just purchased an Aquael Classic 60 Aquarium starter kit and would love for those with experience on how to cycle the tank. From what i have read so far I cannot add the tetras straight away, would it be better to introduce a hardier species for this process? If so what kind of fish will work in a community with a school of neon tetras? For tank size was thinking 8 neon tetras and 2 other fish (not sure what is compatible)
As i said i am a complete novice and all advice welcome as i don't want to do it half arsed and for the fish to suffer.
Hopefully speak to some of you later
