Yup, looks good. Shrimp are always iffy so there's only one way to find out about that.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Alright. I did a ph test and am at 7. Got 2 bags of Eco-Complete and a new bulb.

Thanks so much for the help!

Turns out my tank is a 20. What fish can I get?

I was thinking:

7 Danios/Tetras
1 Male(Has an alternate home)/6 Female Platies
6 Cory Cats

Would that be overstocked?

Is it a 20 long (30 inches long) or a 20 high (24 inches long)?

20 High. It also has 3 inches or so of the Eco-Complete substrate in it. Eco-Complete. I told my dad I thought it was 20 but he said 30, and I went with it. We found out when we bought a bulb for a 30" hood.

Thanks!

Okay so for 20 gallon I think the dwarf gourami shoots back up to the top of the list for centerpiece, or the group of honeys. Or you could still do the smaller ram and apisto dwarf cichlids. For corys I would be looking to get pandas or dwarf corys - smaller species. I would go guppies over platies in the smaller tank, but you could still squeeze the platies in there. As for your school of fish, no danios. I would do smaller fish, like ember tetras.

I am not going to get gouramis, no fish store has honey gouramis around here. Not that I have seen at least. Would I be ok with the Cories, Platies, and Danios?
