Nice start. What do you plan on socking it with?

At the moment I have a single Male Gardneri Killi (female died) and 10 Tri-Color Nerites. I am having trouble putting any other fish in the tank because the killi kills them. Prior to moving the male back to the Finnex I had him with 15 neons, well I have 5 left! I don't know what to put in there with him, any suggestions?

Shrimps =D

I don't know if your killi might eat them or not, but you can never go wrong with shrimps in nanos.

If it fits in his mouth he will eat it! I am pretty sure he would eat any and all shrimp that I were to put in there.

just leave it for the killi. its probably too small of a tank for the killi in the first place but it may work. also theres a rule with nerites, you should only have 1 per 5 gallons or they wont have enough food.

IIRC killies are found in extremely shallow pools of water and are quite. Intent living in small spaces! As for the nerites they are about the size of an eraser head and through my experience with them you can house 2-3 per gallon and still have more than enough algae to go around!

i know this, but i had a pair of gardneri biassa in a 10 and would neverput them in smaller. also if you know msjnkd(i think thats her name on this site) she recomends one per 5 so the have enough to eat all of the time.
