Description: This is my 10 gallon setup. I have 10 neon tetras and about 12 plants. I am going to get some more tetras after I see how these guys do.
Advice: Clean algae when you first see it because it can get uncontrollable. Also do NOT buy leopard or eight spotted puffers and put them in a freshwater tank they will die for sure.
Fish Kept: Neon Tetras
Corals/Plants: Brazilian Waterweed, Amazon Sword Plants, Onion Plant, and Water Primrose
Tank Size: 10 gallons
Quote: I hate algae
About Yourself: I first started this hobbie when I saw my uncle's tank. I started with 2 cherry barbs, 2 tiger barbs, and a plecostomos. And 4 plants. Then unfortunately I bought a leopard puffer from a store that said they did good in freshwater and of course it died in about 2 weeks. Then my barbs died and my pleco died so I bought these little guys and they are doing very good.

COMMENTS

nice looking setup! the puffer died because it requires brackish water. the rest of early deaths possibly because the water wasnt fully cycled/stable enough yet. *the smaller the tank the more *touchy* the water quality is. Aside from that.... check out my tank i have a mixed tetra school, and i love them. Some neon tetras, some neon green and glo-light. such a cool little colorful school of fish. great tank tho! fish avatar
