Mix of minnows?

Postby cate » Wed Jul 30, 2014 6:16 pm

Hi everyone! :bye: I am setting up my first aquarium. I have been researching online and have decided to get a 40L tank and a shoal of 6 white cloud mountain minnows. I am cycling my tank using fish food at the moment (taking forever...) and hope to get the fish in another 2 weeks. Anyway, my question is: in my shoal of 6, can I get 3 silver minnows and 3 of the golden variety? Or do they need to be the same kind?
Cheers :-)

Don't rush the cycle of the tank it will be worth it in the long run, honestly.

Yes you can mix the minnows, it will make a nice mix. (you should post pictures when its up and running)
