I am going to set up my 15g tank and I was wanting to get 2 ADF  and some real small fish. I was hoping for at least 10 of something. Would Neons work or would the adult size of 1 1/2" be to large?

Any other recomendations that a normal LFS might carry? I don't want to special order anything.

Thanks

Micro-rasboras are nice if you're LFS carries them.

If you like the Micro-rasboras and can't find any locally in stores or local aquarium clubs you could always PM Danionins ( a member here)..
He breeds a few of the micro-rasbora species and just may have a few extra.

Belinda and Gunnered

I will look for the Micros and if I can't find them, I will try the Pearls. If I can't find them I will try Dannions.

Debra, I read the link first before I posted and did a little more research. It seems that most people have them in a larger tank. This is only a 15g so I wanted real small fish so I could have a larger school to go with 2 ADF's.Thanks for the link. I did re-read if in case I missed something.

pokey go to the Wet Spot in Portland. They generally have three or 4 of the micro-rasboras in.

I am kinda fed up , I guess you can say, with the Wetspot. Customer service is getting bad and what they tell people irks me. I might try again for my ADF's. LFS is out of them.

I ended up with 10 teeny neons.

Thanks

Paula, your tank needs to be fully cycled before you add the ADFs. I don't know if you used media from another tank to instantly cycle your new one or not but if you didn't please do it before you add your frogs.

Good Luck!

Debra

I always make sure my tank, even my QT tank, is cycled. I have an extra filter in all my other filters for a "Just in case" moment lol!

I also found out that there is some sort of virus going around, and no one around here is shipping any ADF right now. Apperently it is world wide.

So my little neons will be by themselves for awhile. Saves me for a bit on having to set up a QT Tank  for now.

Virus? That's interesting. I just purchased two ADFs and lost one of them within two days. Poor little guy pretty much landed in the tank, found a cave crawled in and died. The other one is eating, exploring and seems fine.

I don't see anything online about an adf virus. What have you heard, if you don't mind my asking? I'll have to keep a closer eye on the little guy that I have left.

All I was told was that this virus was world wide so all the shipping of ADF's have been stopped. I never heard anything from anyone else either.  I plan on calling a few other LFS this weekend and see what they say. Can't do it any sooner as I am in the OT months of work and it's nuts right now.

Thanks, Debra. I did actually think of that when I got them and put some bloodworms at the cave entrance as soon as I added them to the tank. The one that ate lived and the other one died. I suppose he was just too weak to make it.

I have had Jasper for about two weeks now and have been feeding him in the same spot at his cave entrance. Once his QT is up, I will be adding my betta to his tank. I decided to QT him in his actual home rather than put him in a separate QT. This way I figure he will be comfy with his cave and space before Grover joins him and he will know where to find his food.

EDIT: Sorry, Pokey! Didn't mean to hijack your thread!
