PostSubject: Lonely Albino BN   Sun Apr 21, 2013 3:09 pm

Hi -

I am new to this site. I have a 20 gallon tall tank that has been a dedicated Pomacea diffusa tank for the past year (apple snails, mystery snails). My snails were getting elderly and now I am down to one.

A few months ago I purchased a very small albino BN (Gandalf) - it appears she is a female.

I would like to get some hardy, compatible tank mates to add when my last snail passes, but I'm really not sure what I should get. I'd like tetras - but I saw somewhere that 20 gallons is not really enough for them. Question

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Brenda

Your tank is minimum size for NEON tetras. But, I'd say it's kinda small for BN. You might wanna consider getting something larger. Size matters! Wink It's easier to maintain, keep the water parameters on desired level...
In case of plecos, most important is how much bottom area you have.
Here's something handy:

Hi,that size tank is o.k for a single bristlenose as long as you provide a cave and bog wood and have a weekly cleaning routine and have a good filter.It isn't really big enough for much else as it is on the small side.He/she will not be lonely it will be very happy on its own infact.

Bristlenoses Very Happy
