it'll be my birthday soon, and i saw a box arrive from petco yesterday that's about the right size and shape to be a bookshelf aquarium! strict instructions not to touch it... even though it keeps staring at me. :;gift i think i'm gonna wait to open it until xmas, though, so that i can save up for and research exactly what i want. i was thinking: - celestial pearl danios (how many minimum?) - dario dario (2? do i have to be able to sex them at the lfs? would 2 of the same sex get along?) - a ramshorn snail (in one tank of mine, they're doing great [ph: ~7.4]. in another tank, their shells look thin and they have really died off [pH: ~8.0]. other parameters are normal/healthy.) would that work? any suggestions for plants and the best place to get them? i keep reading about plants, but i get so overwhelmed that at the end of the day i'm lost. i have bad luck with plants, so which easy plants would look good in a bookshelf aquarium? thanks for your input!!
