A good selection from across the world. I like to keep fish and plants from the same geographical area and liking very similar water conditions. Out of that selection I would go for the Asian fish to make up a community tank consisting of the, cherry barbs, golden barbs a small group of upsidedown catfish (Synodontis nigriventris) and a few zebra danios for upper movement in the tank. If i had any more space available I would add a school of Harlequin fish (Rasbora heteromorpha)just to show off the front of the tank. Ahhh it's good to dream...

How dare they leave out the neon tetra and the mighty guppy, everyone cuts their teeth on those two!
Maybe we should start a bad community tank thread, the worst fish you ever bought and regretted it!
Ill start with a plec!

Fantastic thread. Glad to see I have Three of the ten. Well 4 If you count my long finned Rosy/Golden barbs. I need a few more but I don't know if I have the room. O.o

cant really say worst fish, worst fish for the set up, as in an appropriate set up they wouldnt be a problem. but the worst mistakes i have made, were putting one of my beautiful fighters in my large community tank to be killed by the male bolivian ram! oops! and then bought a baby black syno, and it grew pretty fast (several months), and one night all but one of my cardinals disappeared, he lives with much bigger fish in grahams tank now tho!

Some of my 'perfect' fish are...

Congo Tetras's (amazing colours)
Clown Loach (always active)
Roberts Tetra's (similar to Rosy Tetras but with much
better colouring - hard to find)
Torpedo Barbs (peaceful, and non fin nipping)

and some problem fish, with are supposed community...

Rosy Barbs (great colours, but fin nip like crazy)
Opaline Gourami (mr bully of the tank)
Spotted Headstanders (never got to eat anything)
Silver Sharks (get too big, 5' tank needed at least)
Hope this helps someone...

I am going to set up a tropical tank, but i would love some a to z advice on setting it up cycle etc to stocking. tank is biorb heated 30 litres, so i thought a few neon tetras, what would live happily along side these, and how big can they be before they eat each other, i believe neons grow to about 1.7 inch so how much bigger can you go with other fish before they attack the neons.
thanks
sarah
any hints and tips on keeping heated aquarium are really appreciated. am a total novice

a good rule is whatever they can fit in there mouths, they will eat! also you cant really have fish much bigger than about 2-3 inchesmax in a bi-orb anyway, they just dont have enough room. so a decne tshoal of teras or somehting similar would just about fill it.
