Firstly, thank goodness for this forum! I thought I would struggle through this whole process killing fish more by accident than design.

My wife has bought me a biorb 15 for Christmas after me telling her how much I loved having tanks as a kid (my Dad's tanks not mine).

Obviously this thing is tiny and not brilliant by all accounts so I was looking at getting something slightly bigger (Aquanano 40/55l) which I can get in my small living room.

I know I need to do a fishless cycle which I've seen the advice on here (although I'm still a bit perplexed) and will also get an API kit and hopefully set in up over the next two months.

But  actually wondering what I could stock in it? The calculator i used reckons 21 slender fish. I was thinking:-

1 dwarf gourami or 2 Congo tetras
6 cardinal tetras
3 guppies
3-5 Red cherry shrimp or blue ones

I was also wondering if people have to Aquanano 40 and if it is any good can you suggest something of a similar size and dimension...along with how you've aquascaped yours?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
