Need advice on what fish i should get

Postby phiz20 » Mon Jul 09, 2012 1:51 pm

Hi, i currently have 3 goldfish which later on tonight will be going to a new home in a pond, very happy as i only have a 15 gallon tank, not very good for them. Anyway i was having a lot of trouble with the cycle and everything, so as soon as the goldfish are gone, i am going to try to get my water perfect and then thinking about changing to tropical fish as soon as i have bought a heater. So....which fish and how many would be best for my 15 gallon tank? Need some advice as i have never kept them before. I really want to do things right this time round after the whole goldfish situation i was in. Thanks

Well i love my panda corys their great to watch. But if your using gravel it'll have to be fairly small as they'll damage their barbs

As its your first tank try your hand at some livebearers, you will get some lovely babies which will keep you amused and they are easy fish to keep. Have a read through the profiles and you will find some lovely fish.
The first thing is getting the tank cycled, if you go to beginners section you will find a couple of posts in there about cycling without fish or with fish, without fish is the best way obviously.
