    Is there anything specific you want? First thing I'd do is up the tetra number to at least 6

    A bunch of schools of different tetras might look cool. Or, if they would combine, you could make a rainbow school.

    I would really like to keep it on a budget because last time someone suggested me fishes it was 88$

    I've seen a lot of recommendations for small catfish. Maybe a panda corydoras catfish? Or some type of frog.

    Fish have a tendency to be very expensive. It's a problem I've run into myself a lot.

    Can I get anything else than 2 dwarf gourami because I have 2 dwarf gourami so is there anything else I can get

    And also how easy is to care for an Axolotl?

    Definitely, I just assumed you were talking about them as the 2 single fish. You could do 2 angelfish.
    They're not very hard, but this tank would be way too warm for them
  12. Edwin092New MemberMember

    I have had encounters with angelfish they die to easily because they need live food and flake food don’t know why

    Well at least for me

    Here's my recommendation.

    Group fish:
    6-8 Columbian tetras
    5-7 Swordtails
    6-10 Rummy-Nosed Tetras

    Single Fish:
    2 Dwarf Gourami
    2 Bolivian Rams
    1 of Each

    Aquatic Animal:
    3-5 African Dwarf Frogs

    Ok I’ll try and decide form list to see which one I like Anyways

    Thank you for all your help

    trick is getting them at a larger size, they really shouldn't need live food after they're 0.5"

    I'd do a lot a research on the ADF if you really want some, they're quite different to take care of
  16. Edwin092New MemberMember

    But I could never seem to find the small ones they always sell the mature ones

    And also what medicine should I use in the API area

    Well I have 3 algae balls
  19. Addie42Well Known MemberMember

    what about some guppies? maybe a bristle nose pleco ??
    I would add a bunch more of the tetras rather than adding more schooling fish. I think it would be more fun to watch a large school instead of several smaller schools

    Ok but finding columbian tetras in my area is hard and I found that out after I bought them
