Fish suitability #1
Hi. I have a 155 litre tank aquarium. The temp is 27 degrees.
We had some early problems.. and lost fish..
We currently have 1 angel fish. 6 neon tetras. 2 clown loaches. 1 golden plecco . 1 tiger barb (I think?? We had 4 originally)..a massive wood shrimp and 1 remaining I am not sure!!?? I have uploaded photos to help.
The tank is airated. I do a 10% water change 1 X a week , siphon the gravel 1 X ev 3 weeks. I hadn’t but am thinking I should clean the filters every month??(tell me if wrong - but when I checked after 4 weeks was filthy). I clean the filters in the water taken from the tank during water change..
Please advise on other suitable fish..
We did have 2 angels, but one died.. the surviving angel did seem aggressive to other fish but now solo does not seem to be.. Personally I would like another angel , but don’t want more trouble/deaths ..
We were also looking at maybe 2/3 silver sharks - but I have read that the tank would be too small for 3 mature sharks?? (Only quoting not stating!)
I would like some bright fish.. please advise and let me know your thoughts..
Thanks

HELP! MY FISH KEEP DYING!! #4
Hi. Dont know what info you are going to want/need to try and help me, but here goes.
I have a small 20 litre tank. Got filter and aeration.
Started with 2 american flags, comet(?) 2 danios. 1 flag dies and comet. Then got fantail, and few weeks later that dies!
recently had 1 American flag, 2 danios, 1 shubunkin?,1 goldfish, and loach. first shubunkin dies, then loach.
Done water change with water safe, now goldfish died, and 1 danio on its way out! Have water test kit, and been monitoring every week. When shubunkin and loach found dead, n02 and n03 were way too high(but went from fine to that in space of 3 days!!??), which is why i did water change.
what is happening here?? possible causes anyone??
my little boy has been very upset, and its costing fortune!!
is tank too small??
HELP!! please...
