I've ready through much of this thread and I'm wondering if there is a good list of groups of fish that would work. I have a 6 gallon Fluval Edge

i.e. 5 ELB, 2 sparkling gourami, 3-4 shrimp
or 5 green tetras, 5 Galaxy Rasbora

I'm new to this and have a good idea of what I can stock on it's own but grouping them together makes me unsure. Sometimes the fish are all bottom dwellers or fight, or I'm just unsure if they school. Any thoughts?

Right now, this is what I'm thinking (stock LED, low tech, planted of course)
2 Sparkling Gourami, 5 Galaxy Rasbora, 3-4 red shrimp, 1 snail
Or 5 green tetras, 2 Sparkling Gourami, 3-4 shrimp

Java moss and moss balls only.
1 half moon
5 endlers
1 pea puffer

Any tips? They all get along fine even when hungry. How many endlers do you guys think I can put in here?

If you have a 12 gallon tank, you can ask for a replacement at no charge though you might have to show them the broken light fixture.
You're saying they'll replace the halogen fixture with the new LED unit?

Hello everyone,

After weeks of searching for a right aquarium for my room I finally decided on the fluval edge 12 gallon. This is my first aquarium I have ever owned and plan to start if off right I have been doing alot of research on types of fish Ive been looking for my aquarium (freshwater) Now I have a few questions from a first time owner to experts on this forum.

1. I plan to have about 3 plants Ive been looking at the amazon sword and a anubias nana. I was wondering if these plants can grow well in just sand or would I need some substrate that will grow these plants. If they do grow well in sand do I need liquid co2 for the plants?

2. I know the fluvals stock leds are not that strong but any other suggestions for plants that are easy to grow with low maintenance would be great I dont want to modify the tank leds just something that can start me on the right track for a beginner.

3. Last question. What is the amount of fish I can have in this 12 gallon I know there is the 1inch/1gallon rule but I would like a community tank where I can have a mix of some different types of fish, shrimp , maybe some snails.

Sorry if these are really nooby questions but this is my first time owning an aquarium and want to get it right the first time.

Thanks alot everyone!

I have a 6G with stock LEDs, low tech, all stock with some annubias, java fern, java moss and a marimo ball. How long should I be keeping the light on per day? It doesn't get any direct sunlight but does have weak indirect throughout the regular daylight hours.

Is there some rule of thumb or reasoning behind that? I have a bit of string algae starting up and I was giving it about 12 hours a day so I just cut back, but I'm wondering if there is a system I should be using to figure this out.

If you are having algee problems get a nerite snail or cut it back to maybe 10 hours and see how it goes

Question

Friends

I have a 6 gallon en route as a late holiday gift and I am very excited!

I have done some research and I want to go the planted route instead of plastic. My questions are as follows and I appreciate any and all answers

- I have read "carpet" style plants wont work too well because of being able to service them through the limited opening. Is there a species available that isn't so high maintenance?
- whats a good background, taller filler plant to give some "height" to the tank?
- any preferred vendors you guys suggest for online purchases?

I am getting the update version with better lights and plan on keeping it simple if I can help it. The caveat being a c02 system seems interesting especially if I can do it on the cheap. I play paintball so no shortage of 20z tanks in my house Is there is a simple pre-made setup I can use?

Thanks again!

I have 7 ember tetras and 7 Cory habrosus living in mine. Fairly well planted.

Hey guys,

Just thought I'd add my Fluval 12g here on the official thread.

I've also started my own journal, so feel free to take a look at it!

Hey everyone, Im getting a 6g Edge with the new LED system. I was planning on putting baby dwarf tears in it, has anyone grown these successfully with the stock lighting? If not is there a good lighting solution that fits within the hood?
