I've caught a bad case of MTS and just finished setting up Fred's old 20L tank as a planted fish tank in the office This was my first time using the fishless cycling method using pure ammonia. I seeded the tank by squeezing the nasty mud from sponges from Fred's aged filter into the tank. Got everything cycled in less than 2 weeks! :D Though I think the XP3 in a 20 gallon fish tank is definitely overkill.

I've moved the 6 tiger barbs, 2 remaining feeder minnows, and 1 CAE out of the turtle tank and into the new tank and out from Fred's menu.

CAE, which sudden changed into this neat gold color last month, makes herself right at home.

Smart move since it sounds like you love your fishes!
Their tank looks great!

Thanks! Funny how "let's try some feeder fish" turned into "I must have a fish tank!"

How many fish can I put in to a 20 gallon long? I already have 9 in there. The Chinese Algae eater I've read gets pretty big, if it grows a couple of more inches, he will have have to go back into Fred's 55 gallon.

i think the rule of thumb for fish is, 1 inch per gallon.
