Thank you for the info on the Cochu! I do not want to add to any stress! I do have a question though; is the number of fish you listed ok for a 55 gallon? I understand that the happier and healthier they are the less bio load and stress, but it still seems like I would be pushing it to add so many fish.

In a 4-foot 55g tank, and keeping in mind the sort of fish we are discussing here, being smallish tetra and corys, I myself would not hesitate to have up to 100 in this tank. Again, assuming well planted, and weekly 50% water changes. Compatibility in all its aspects is the key.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
