My Grandma found a 25g tank, she called us and said she'll see how much it costs if we were interested. Of course (DUH) I'm interested, But what are some good Beginner Fish That I can get (IF of course I can get the tank)
To go with your Platies you could have some tetras. Most will be fine in a 25g. Black Neons, Lemon tetras, Bloodfins and Glowlight tetras are all good starting tetras. They are schoolers, so its recommended you get atleast 6.
You could get a smaller number of Platies and then a school of Tetras to have some variety.
A handful of Cories for the bottom would finish it off. They are schoolers too, so its recommended you get atleast 4-5 of one type.
I like the black neon tetras. Very pretty black markings and nice sheen and they are tough little fish. A school of 5-8 with one or two of the above mentioned would be great. Mix them up with something with color and you would have a great show tank.
