These photos are pretty good! I love your bettas, and the swords are veryy pretty too!
It looks like your black molly may be pregnant, or she just ate a whole bunch... Lol!

As a note for others who see this post, I was curious about this members stocking as well, and they have a post where they are doing their best to learn about what these fish need..
You can find it on their profile.
Let's just love these fishies and great photos!

You're doing a good job op, keep it up

that's a nice assortment of fish.
I do like the bare bottom.

I clicked on your profile and it said you did not no about the nitrogen cycle, is that corrected?
if it is, you need to read up asap, b/c the fish will start getting ammonia poisoning and die.

thanks mate I looked it up and kind of understood it will get test and test the water tomorrow. BTW what can you tell me about the overstocking because some user said I was seriously overstocking but I don't think so what do you think?

in your other thread you state it was 26 gallons. yes, it is overstocked.

since its a new tank and most likely not cycled, the high bioload will create a lot of ammonia, then nitrites, and then nitrates. you should buy a large bottle of Seachem Prime to help detox some of the wastes. And also a large bottle of Tetra SafeStart to speed up the nitrogen cycle. If you buy everything tomorrow. Do a 50% water change. Use Prime, up to 5X the recommended dosage. Wait 24hrs then add in the recommended amount of TSS. Next day add more TSS, repeat until the bottle is empty. Next day add more Prime.

like the others have said, the pleco will get huge.

the goldfish is not a real "cold water" fish, many fish keepers call it "cold water" just because it does not need a heater. Biologically and scientifically, it is a temperate fish. it can live in a heated tank or an unheated tank.

I think it may even be helpful to mention other fish too, say things like (angels usually pair up and get aggressive so they need a tank like this to establish territory as well as have a barrier of protection to stop other fish from getting harmed if there's a breeding pair claiming over half the tank.

(Going to put the rest of my reply on that stocking thread...)
