    Lets talk fish.

    Advertisements
    So we got a fish tank. Its a 20 gallon long, we got a filter, heater, air pump with a mt wannahockalougie as a air feature. We set it up last night. It has been running (everything but lights, we need to get a power strip for the lights still)

    How long should we let it be before we start to think about fish?

    We were thinking about getting tetras. I know they grow to like 1.5 inches or so. So we were thinking 6-8 fish? Too many, not enough? Help!

    We cycled ours for a couple of days. When we got ours, a few years ago, there was a really great thread on here about tanks and fish. Maybe see if you can search and find it? It was full of info.

    Thank you! I have had a tank in the past, but never on my own. I just want to have happy fish, not just living fish, ya know?

    I remember nothing from my brothers fish tank but between your user name and the thread...DH wants to buy fish for the turtle we are watching/have to eat I can barely handle him feeding it bugs. Not poor little fishies

    I apologize for the completely random injection, and hope you enjoy your fish once you get them!
