Wow! this site has alot to answer for!!! lol
After setting up and watching my 1st tank I think I've sort of caught the bug. Just popped down the Golfish Bowl in sunny Oxford and bought myself a Rena Aquarama 60 and my better half got herself a lickle Betta lifespace 16l tank for her desk.
I've read through some of the posts and followed the route of setting the pump up in the main tank to mature after adding some Bio chem stars to the filter (i hope thats right).
I want to make this tank a barb tank and I won't be setting it up with decor until I've looked at as many other setups as I can.
I can now see why you guys have multiple tanks....this is going to be an expensive hobby me thinks!
any advice on set up designs or planting for barbs would be greatly appreciated (I think I rushed the main tank alittle
PS> how many barbs would my rena take? I'm looking mainly at tiger, green and cherry if they'll be ok together in a shoal.
Before I go I just want to say thanks for the help this site has been. There can't be many questions a newbie can think of that haven't been answered on here and its been amazing help to us I can tell you!
