Hey guys.
I cycled and planted my 20 gallon aquarium.
I am now looking for a candidate(s) for a first fish that can handle fluctuating water parameters, since the tank's bio load would be kind of low.
I have my mind set on the Harlequin Rasbora.
Do you guys think the Harlequin Rasbora is a good candidate for a newly established tank with fluctuating water parameters?
THANKS!

what are you expecting to fluctuate? if its cycled then you shouldn't have paramaters changing.

I agree, once it's cycled, it shouldn't fluctuate unless you make the changes in your maintenance, fluctuation in temp is normal within range. I have 7 rasboras among other fish in my 17g, they school, look nice, eat good and are hardy given the right water conditions.

I've got a small school of Harlequin Rasboras in my 12L and along w/ the wild Neos are doing fine. Just curious, what fluctuating water parameters are you referring to? Good luck. :bounce:

Rummynose tetras are much more sensitive to water conditions than harlequin rasboras. Get your parameters stable and go with the harlequins. Once you have some experience with the tank you can add or substitute rummynoses.
