New to all of this
Hi folks. I got into fish the way many people do....my kid won goldfish at a fair. Being stupid, I let her keep playing. So we got 3. One was dead the next morning, but I went and got what I thought was a good enough tank for 2 goldfish. A Tetra LED Cube kit, 3 gallons. Wrong!
After a few months of frequent water changes, ich, and general discontent, they died. We replaced with a betta who lived happily with us for a year. Then, during a water change and tank cleaning, I messed up with the water and she died :-(
Replaced with a male betta. He did well until I added a live plant to the tank and it died. I wasn't able to remove and change water fast enough and the poor betta died too.
So, now I have this tank with a pretty cool mountain rock in it, two live plants that I think are some sort of sword but I'm honestly not sure (petco purchase), and a tiger nerite snail.
Visited the LFS on Sunday because my daughter and I would like to turn this into a nano tank for green neon tetras and RCS. My only concern is the size of the tank and the number of tetras I can carry, which still having the tetras be happy.
LFS and I discussed getting the shrimp and 3 tetras, then seeing how they do and possibly coming back for 3 more. Anyone have thoughts?
Pic of the tank included. Any advice would be appreciated.
