At the beginning of December, I am enlisting into the US Army and will leave at the end of the summer (delayed entry- I have school still), and while I'm gone, my mom will be taking care of my fish. Now this is about a 4 year term, may be longer. Because my 10 gallon tank will again be up on display instead of hiding out, I'm going to get a couple of small schools with real nice, pretty, easy fish.
Here are my ideas:
-White Cloud Minnows
-Gold Cloud Minnows
-Neon Tetras (I'm actually rather worried about the tetra disease they get pretty easily)
I really adore the minnows and my LFS has a ginormous school of them combined and they seem to school rather tight with each other. What of those do you think is pretty hardy that will do well with Pygmy Gouramis (I have 2 of those in my 10 right now)?
Like I stated before, I need them to be hardy and I want peaceful schooling fish. Any thoughts?
Also, here's an update on my 29 gallon:
2 Julii Corydoras Catfish
2 Corydoras Catfish of an unknown species
4 Zebra Danios
1 Leopard Danio
3 Pristella Tetras
4 Pearl Danios (What can I say? I'm attached)
1 Flying Fox
1 Rainbow Shark
2 Madagascar Rainbow Fish
Seems like a lot of fish but there's actually a lot of swimming room for them all.
Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!
