5 platies (one male, four females)
1 male guppy
5 otocinclus catfish
undertermined number of mystery snails (that I'm in the process of removing)
Currently growing dwarf lily bulbs. One's sprouted, the others haven't taken yet. They've only been in 12 days though so I'm going to wait until the beginning of January to take out any unsprouted bulbs. They're slow growing plants.
Tank has been set up for almost a year, starting with guppies, all of one of which died off. The only change I can think that would make things bad is I did a small water change (about 10%) 2 days ago.
location: United States
Sorry, I can't test the water parameters because I don't have a test kit. I do plan on buying one when I can. I am one of those people who started without knowing much and now has to run and try and gather everything they need. Also, I live in a town with 10k people and no actual pet store. The only store I know that carries a good amount of fish supplies is Wal-Mart, which again limits what I can get without ordering online.
If needed, I can try to take a picture of this fish but she's still acting normally and no clamped fins on anyone. And, again, she's very shy and likes to hide.
EDIT: I can NOT remove any of the fish for an extended period of time. I don't have a hospice tank and there's no safe area I can put them away from the cats. My room is the only room off limits to cats and it's extremely drafty.
