Do they have to be dried and how many do you think for a 20 gal tank?
The fish I would like when I looked them up they mostly all said a ph of 6.5 to 7.5
Also I don't think my plants like the ph that highThe fish I would like when I looked them up they mostly all said a ph of 6.5 to 7.5
That seems like a lot of ottos should I wait for them until my tank is full of plants and algea?You shouldn't lover the numbers. Otos, cories, tetras, and white clouds should be in groups of 6+; keeping them in smaller groups can stress them out, and you shouldn't do it. Male dwarf gouramis should not be kept together, especially in a tank this small - they'll kill each other.
What about this?
8x White clouds
8x False julii cories (one of the smaller cory species - others can get too big for this tank size)
Otos should not be required to live off algae. You should feed them veggies and herbivore wafers as well, so you don't need to fill your tank with algae. However, they do require a cycled tank to thrive, so you'd want to wait to add them until after your tank is cycled.That seems like a lot of ottos should I wait for them until my tank is full of plants and algea?
The white clouds will not eat ghost shrimp.Will white clouds eat the shrimp or can I get them at the same time?
The cory cats will not eat ghost shrimp either.I know the cory cats will eat the shrimp so I was going to get them after they breed the first time.
The dwarf gourami will likely not be able to eat an adult ghost shrimp, but it may eat juveniles if you buy them young and small.Will gourmis eat shrimp as well
