"The Planted Tank" Mini Books

Well the first book is going to be about fish I have/will have in my tank. This will include plants, ferts, feeding type, CO2, Lighting, Substrate, and other things of this sort. My little book will be there for the kids I baby sit for them to read up on the fish and plants I have and what other people say about each of these items. I just need the following info from people that own the fish/plants. I can get the info off the web but I want info about how they do in a tank compared to how they are suppose to do in a tank. Here is the list:

Blue Danio- Danio rerio
Size-2 in.(5cm)
Min. Tank Size-10g
Swimming Level-
Feeding Type(Omnivore, Herbivore, Carnivore)
Substarte Preference-
Breeding Type-

Cherry Barb- Barbus titteya
Size-2 in.(5cm)
Min. Tank Size-10g
Swimming Level-
Feeding Type(Omnivore, Herbivore, Carnivore)

Peppered Cory-

None of those plants need CO2. Anubias should not be planted.

The correct name of "Java moss" is probably Taxiphyllum barbieri. Plants themselves tend to only need as many fertilizers as the tank specifies, example a high light tank should have more fertilizers.

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....
