Current Rio 180

Postby Fenners » Sun May 14, 2017 3:18 pm

Hi all,

I did post on here a while ago about my new tank anyway here's an update and I want some advice on next stocking please.

Been up and running for 4 months now,
Current stock:
- 8 sterbai corys
- 6 cherry barbs
- 6 dwarf neon rainbows (shiney blue)

I only had the rainbows due to an issue with a family tank and they had no where to go, they've been in there for 2 months now and no issues.

I'm moving the tank today to the lounge out the kitchen as the algae is a nightmare with the patio doors, my plants have all died aswell and can work out why they get fertilised and lights on for 6hrs a day roughly. Running at 26oC currently and all water readings are where they should be.

What would you stock next?

Thanks!

They seem a good choice, can I add any black neons in to?

Maybe a shoal of 10?

Hopefully a look at this post helps and gives you an idea of my stocking.

But no it's a decent size tank a shoal of black neons should not be an issue.
