Would this be a balanced tank and are the calculations done right? If not could you plaese do them for me? And please give your opinions.

One thing to take off for the 36 gallon tank, there are only 4 platys now.

Either add three more tetras in your 28 or forget them, if you do keep up with your water changes and have good filtration.

As for the 38 add two more neons and you should be good,

One of my neons have died so all I'll need is 3 more. And it is a 36 gallon tank not a 38. I put in the adjustments and the tanks are just slighty over the 1"/gallon rule. Im attaching an updated one now.

You should be fine, just make sure it's 6 neons not 4, what type of filtration will you have and water changes.

Do your weekly water changes and increase the amount if needed

Thanks. That won't be happening for a little while now since my young platy aren't growing very fast.

How long does it take for platys to grow to about an inch? I've asked this under the livebearer platy section.

for guppies I know it usually takes 4-6 months to reach full lenght, whether that applys to platys I don't know but it won't take that long.

I know I've had some since the end of March 2006 and they are only an inch now. They are Black Calicos if that matters.

Don't know, all Iknow not all species will get the same and I don't think platys get that big either.

Thanks, that would have helped. This is for the following question, I had 7 tries to get it right and and I didn't get it. :'( So on the overall homework thing I got 81.3% (just if you were wondering).
