I've got 8 lovely little cherry barbs in my 60 litre- finally some fish!
I was very impressed with the shop I got them from, they weren't keen on selling me 8 fish for a new tank. I had to explain a lot about the fishless cycle I'd done and all the water test results before they grudgingly let me have 8. Why can't all aquatic stores be like that?
They also had signs on the tanks smaller than 60 litres (which there weren't many of) saying that they were too small for goldfish. I nearly cried with happiness Well done, Notcutts.
The cherry barbs are already flirting like crazy, randy buggers.
They were DD1's choice, she wanted something pink I wanted minnows so I wouldn't have to bother with a heater, then in a moment of weakness I asked DD1 what sort of fish she wanted. They are lovely fish though, the males are really scrapping over the females. I've got 3 males and 5 females so a good mix.
No plans for any more fish but I'm thinking about shrimp and I need to get a couple of nerites.
