OK so my last message was deleted. But now I'm good to go. Everyone, don't laugh. I've done lots of reading and given opinions but none of it's from experience.
I have my 55 gallon tank totally ready to go. I want one parrot and maybe bloodfins or tiger barbs for dither fish. Bronco, you suggested a green puffer fish and initially I thought no. But I've become fascinated after a little reading. If I got one would it eat my dither fish (probably?) and chew up my plants? Once he crunched up my snails I'd have to learn what else he needs to keep his teeth worn down. Would he be OK with the parrot?
I think I've had so much time to think about this that I've become a little nervous.
Nieko, how are your kirins?
