  8. Hi from the location in your profile Manalapan guessing you're in the USA New Jersey area did you get the tank set up and fish from the same pace and how long was the tank running before you added the fish I would be looking for a different aquarium that the one that supplied you with the fish and didn't explain about cycling the tank the choice of fish is not what I consider a good combination for a tank that size you would be better to just have the Tiger and Rosy barbs as they are hardy and won't out grow the tank like the Heckelli will have a look around for a dedicated aquarium rather than a pet store do you know what your local water parameters are ?
