I realize my posts so far seem to be carbon copies of each other asking about what fish to get , and i apologize for that. Unfortunately though this is just another one of the same posts. I also figured that perhaps i should start a new thread over here , since most stocking questions seem to be in the beginner section.
I have been in the process of adding and subtracting potential candidates to place within my tank , some i don’t know if i can get at the LFS’s in my area , but the owner of the shop i go to keeps on telling me that he can order me in anything i want. Anyways i am going to list some of the species i am looking at right now , the temperatures and PH levels seem to be similar with them , though behavior is what i am most curious about , and if they will nip or dine upon one another.
Medusa Pleco L-034
Red Harlequin (Rasbora heteromorpha)
Tetra Black Neon
Gourami Flame Dwarf
Gourami Powder Blue Dwarf
Dwarf Neon Rainbow
Also i realize some of these need to be kept in schools , so if someone could suggest numbers for how many should be kept together that would be helpful.
Assuming this is for your 55g (I looked at your other posts), I think a good stocking would be:
8-10 Black Neons
7-8 Dwarf Neons
6-8 Kuhli loaches
3-4 Dwarf Gouramis or Moonlight Gouramis (I wouldn't do both)....try to get 1 male and 2-3 females of either
1 Medusa Pleco
If you have to have the Diamond Tetras, I'd change out one of the other schoolers for them.....and not have 4 schools. But that's just my suggestion. I think you could get away with about 6 each of the schooling fish (diamond and black neon tetras, harlequins, and rainbows)....but the tank would look kinda chaotic IMO with all the separate schools.
