    How many false/green neon tetras in 30 litre/5 gallon tank?

    Hello I have a 30-30-30cm tank with one siamese fighter, 2 otos, 2 corys and shrimp. I had rummy nose but i heard they weren't good for a nano tank. So how many false/green neon tetras could I put in my tank I was thinking 7-9? thanks gregalon (I used the surface area rule, so 30cm of fish).

    30 litre/6 gallon could I get a pair of dwarf cichlids?

    Hi I'm very tempted but because I'm away often and my parents will be caring for it I doubt they would be willing to waste more space for worms :) I will think about just adding one cichlid but most likely not due to all your informative comments (I could get a larger tank! anyway I'll have to...
