    Best Live Plants For A Beginner?

    Marimo moss balls, anubias, and java fern are the easiest and can survive most things. Slightly above that, duckweed, java moss, susswassertang, crypt wendtii, hornwort would be good to try.

    Live Plants In Tank

    Goldfish like eating plants. Duckweed should grow fast enough to compensate for that, anubias is tough enough to withstand most goldfish, and parrot's feather my goldfish have not found delicious.

    How Long Have You Guys Been Keeping Fish?

    For real about 4 years. But I've 'kept' them since I was 5. But I don't really count that. I didn't care for them properly.

    Black Ghost Knifefish

    Do you already have a huge tank to put it in after a few months?

    It was divine. 9/10.

    Black Ghost Knifefish

    No. A full grown one wouldn't even fit in a 20 gallon. They can get up to 20 inches long.

    So I just found the best food ever. It's brown sugar ham on homemade challah bread with M&Ms on top. One of the best things I've eaten in my life.

    Tons don't require CO2. Depends on your lighting and whether or not this is a column tank.

    20 High Stocking Plan Okay?

    Pick between the dwarf gourami and the honeys. Do 3 honey gouramis if you go with them. Otherwise looks fine. Wouldn't do a BN pleco in this setup mainly because of bioload. What sort of corydoras do you have?

    Will Male Guppy Eat Fry?

    If it can fit in a fish's mouth and they exhibit no parental care to their fry, they will likely eat it.

    Will Male Guppy Eat Fry?

    All guppies will eat their fry. Leave the babies in the 2 gallon and keep doing water changes until they're big enough to not be eaten. But if they all survive you'll be overstocked, which is kind of the issue with livebearers if you don't have a lot of tanks. I'd just leave the fry with the...

    Could I Add Anymore Tank Mates ?

    You'd be good adding another honey gourami. Bump up the glowlights and corydoras to 6. Add ghost shrimp if you want; they're low bioload.

    If your source requires a QT (chain, not a great LFS, etc) then yes by all means QT them first.

    25 Gallon With A Honey Gourami Stock

    I'd stick with one male two females personally. I'd say add the green neons, wait a week, add the honeys, then wait two weeks, add 1/2 the kuhlis, then add the rest after another week. But if you're willing to be really watchful of the water quality you could probably add them a bit faster.

    All 10. Their bioload isn't huge. If you cycled well you'll be fine.

    5 Gallon Tank

    Not many permanently. Most that can usually need live food. You could do an invertebrate tank though. 10 gallon you have more options, but I wouldn't do it unless you have a lot of experience in FW before you move to saltwater nanos. Saltwater is a whole other world, let alone a nano...

    25 Gallon With A Honey Gourami Stock

    Just a bit too busy for me. In smaller tanks generally I just like centerpiece, single school, bottom feeder. But that's totally up to you.

    What Kind Of Snail Is This?

    Bladder snail. Good for flat algae. Will populate a lot if there's excess food/dead plants in the tank.

    25 Gallon With A Honey Gourami Stock

    That sounds good. I'd say if you get harlequins, 8 is a good number. Green neons, bump it to 10. Small fish and they really like to school. I'd leave out the endlers personally.

    That's normal neons. Green neons are a different species. Smaller. Like warmer temps.

    Betta Care, Be Warned I Have No Clue What I Am Doing

    It is a lot easier to cycle the tank without fish than it is with fish. A lot safer for the fish too. It took me around a month to cycle my 60 gallon. It may take you a bit more or a bit less depending on your water. You can cycle it a bit faster if you have a friend with a bit of used...

    I am familiar with Arachnoboards and have reptiles and arthropods myself, so welcome from a fellow keeper of those creatures! A betta is a great first choice! In a 5 gallon tank, you will want the betta alone. No other fish. For a true beginner community tank, you're looking at around 20...
