Im getting a 55 gallon (he thinks its 55, i can get measurements when its actually in my front room) and im trying to figure what to put in it. What kind of fish can live with a turtle? My local store is getting ready to have yellow belly babies in stock. I originally wanted cichilds and i can buy baby mbunas for 2.99 a piece! I was thinking 20 total because im supposed to overstock a little. How can I add these to tank? All at once or in batches. They are 1 inch in size, baby mbunas if i go this route can any sand work or does it need to be something like crushed shells or crushed coral? Because that stuff is ridiculously expensive. I have several diy cave ideas, from 4 way pvc connectors to upside down tubberware with a hole in the side, and im decorating them with pea gravel and river stones (left over substrate from other tanks). I also considered getting a ton of rummy nose tetras or fancy guppies. Something for the kids to enjoy, seeing lots of little fish. Or a variety of platys or mollys. Just as many different colors as i can buy. Thanks for any tips!
