Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum but not aquariums. That being said, my first and only aquarium was a 40 gallon reef tank. Stunning and so much fun. Anyways, after being out of the hobby I'm beung given a 20 gallon. This time Id like to go freashwater. This tank is currently owned by a friend and stocked with a horrific 130" of fish. Obviously first task is to cut that down. My biggest questions are whatto stock and plant care.
1. Will the dual t5ho light be enough? It has one color max bulb and one 6500K bulb.
2. Which fish should I keep or rehome? He has hatchets, cherry barbs, tigerbarbs?, zebra danios, platys, mollies, guppies, gobies, plecos, and a goldfish.
3. Im well prepared for the maintenance of a high light tank but, not sure of the equipment needed nor parameters.
4. Which plants should I keep and di I need to replace the gravel filter?
