Hi all, My 29 gallon recently finished cycling (used safestart, probably too much but I figure better safe than sorry) and some ember tetras. I did have 1-2 of the ember tetras die (or one disappear mysteriously) but I wonder if they came sick because they were so skinny to start with and never hung out with the others. After testing at 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and rising nitrates for a few days, I added some kubotai rasboras. I just added a few more of the kubotai rasboras today because they were being oddly aggressive and nipping at each other. Went back to the LFS and asked, thinking it might be too many males or too small of a group. They grabbed some that we're pretty sure are female, and after adding them to the tank I'm wondering if most or all of the rasboras I got before were male! Totally different since adding the females, and they look completely different from each other, too. The ember tetras have come out of hiding and are mingling with the rasboras a bit even! Water parameters are still great (0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, ~20 nitrates). It cycled REALLY fast but the parameters have been spot on for several days so I think it really did cycle. I also have 1 nerite snail. I'm not going to add anything else for a while but here's what I'm planning: Idea #1: 10-12 ember tetras 10-12 kubotai rasboras some blue velvet shrimp 1 nerite snail (perhaps another of a different kind as well so they can't reproduce?) small small bottom feeders like asian stone catfish (but I think they require colder water than the rest of my fish. 75 is doable, but that's at the very upper range for asian stone catfish so I don't know if that would be stressful... if that's not a good idea, any other tiny bottom feeder ideas?) Idea #2: 7-10 ember tetras 7-10 kubotai rasboras 7-10 endlers, hopefully light blue some blue velvet shrimp 1 nerite snail, perhaps 1 other snail small bottom feeders I mainly like teeny tiny fish that are fairly uniform in color. I don't really find the more complex patterns as appealing. Some extra info -- tons and tons of plants, lots of light, just added co2. Enough filtration for 50-80 gallons theoretically (Aquaclear HOB rated for 40-70 + sponge filter rated for 10). Temperature is currently at 77 and I think it would be difficult to get it any lower than 72 or 73 especially in the summer. pH ranges from 7.4-8.0. I also have a 12 gallon I haven't started cycling yet so that could be a home for some of them, though my goal is to have many colors in one tank. Thoughts?
