got my fish ordered
« on: January 14, 2018, 10:14:47 am »
went and ordered my fish yesterday. luckily my local pet shop owner is also a fish keeper and he is only a street away so his hardnes is the same as me. also he is going to quarantine them for a couple of weeks for me as well. so the list is male and female bn catfish, 6 dwarf otos, 8 lemon tetras ( love the evil red zombie eyes lol) and 6 albino corys. and he is going to take the chinese algae eaters off me. might get another 10 neons as well. cant wait now  *grin* *grin* *grin*

    I like that List! Were you hoping to add all these at once though? I'm sorry to be a pain, but I think you might need to add the fish group by group so your filter bacteria can grow. You've probably got enough bacteria to support your current neons & CAEs but, I'm not sure that it will then be able to support all those extra fish if added in one go.

    yeah, going to add the bn s and the tetras first, then give it a couple of weeks then add more. already got a dozen neons in for about a month now. and lose the cae. heard too many bad stories and the wife bought them by mistake.

    I agree with Suelo... love that list, but maybe could he keep them for a few weeks as you add a group at a time?  I’m in that process too.  Started with 12 Danios, a two weeks later added my Rams and Plec, a week later added 8 Sterbai Cory and waiting in the wings for next weekend are 6 more sterbai .   Sure it prolongs the excitement!!  Lol

    Removing the CAEs will give you extra stocking room, so you should be ok with the lemons and BNs, maybe even the otos.
    I would wait for the corys and extra neons, and add them in 2 separate batches, two to three weeks apart.
