Just found your site, better than any I have looked at in the UK. I was hoping you could give me some advise. I have just inherited a tank (24"x18"x18") which I have been told has 16 x neon's, 3 x glowlights, 5 x Corydoras and 3 x small cat fish.
This tank has been dumped on me by my flat mate who has disappeared to Australia. I have read all your articles on cleaning and feed and have found out that the tank looks (and smells) better than it has ever done.
It looks very empty and needs more fish, could you suggest what are the best species to mix with these. I was told to buy guppies and moss because they will breed, but to date the only fish I have lost have been guppies and within hours of putting them in, white spot appeared! ...  
Any advise you could give would be greatly appreciate.
Best regards

Reply. Hello Colin, thank you for your compliment. You didn't mention having an aquarium heater in your aquarium, but you must have one. Since the fish you list are warm water fish, and you report that they're are doing well. Click here for more information about warm water aquariums.

One of the things it mentions on that page is to keep about
1" of fish per gallon of water. Click here to go to another page in this web site that gives the conversion factor 0.00433 to convert cubic inches to gallons. You have 24" x 18" x 18" = 7776 cubic inches. Which converts to 7776 x 0.00433 = 33.6 gallons.

The measurements that you listed would be unusual in the U.S. You might want to measure your aquarium carefully (on the inside if possible). If the measurements were 24" x 16" x 16" =  6144 then converting to gallons would be 6144 x 0.00433 = 26.6 gallons. So you'd keep between 26 and 33 inches of fish in your aquarium depending on the exact measurements of your aquarium.

I totaled up the number of fish you have now and got 27. Your fish are all probably about 1" long. If the measurements you gave are correct, then you could add 33 - 27 = 6 more fish.

Glowlights are Small Tetras and are schooling fish that prefer to be kept in a group with at least six Glowlights. If you get more fish, I'd recommend adding more Glowlights.

On that page it also lists Corydoras Catfish as being compatible with Neon Tetras and Glowlights. So it sounds like you have a nice group of compatible fish. Measure your aquarium carefully and calculate the number of gallons. If you have room for more fish, get a few more Glowlights.

Hi there,
I am a little concerned about the fish I have in my tank.  I have 7 Danios, zebra and leopard, 4 glowlight tetras, and two scissor tails.
The glowlights and the scissor tails seem to be reluctant to compete for food with the danios.  They go mad as soon as the flakes hit the water.  The Glowlights will take a few pieces which drop to the bottom of the tank, but the Scissor Tails for their size don't eat a great deal an won't compete with the danios.
Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.  By the way, the Scissor Tails, and the tetras have only been introduced to the tank a few days ago.
Reply. If you look at the list of compatible tank mates above, you'll see that Danios are not listed as compatible with Glowlight Tetras. Danios swim to fast and are more aggressive than Glowlights.

Hello!! I am so thankful that you have this web site.  I got a question for you.
I have a neon tetra that looks like she is pregnant and is going to drop her babies at any minute, but I am not sure on when to move to a different place. I don't want to disrupt her.
Can you tell me when is the best time to move her? And how long fish are pregnant before they have there babies?
Thank you again
Reply. Hello Laura. Thank you for your complimentary comment. Neon Tetra females do not release babies. Neon Tetras release and scatter eggs, which must then be fertilized by a male Neon Tetras. We do not have much information on breeding egg scattering fish like Neon Tetras, but there is a link at the bottom of this page to another website with lots of information spawning Neon Tetras.
