Talking 30 Gallon Hexagon Stocking Options

Starting up a planted 30 Gallon Hexagon Tank. Looking for suggestions on Stocking Options.

I'd like to have a schooling fish of some sort, considering either Rummy Nose Tetra's or Neon Tetras.

I'm thinking of some Amano and Cherry Shrimp, as well as some Oto's for the clean up Crew.

Suggestions on a larger "Centerpiece" Fish? I considered a pair of German Blue Rams - I've kept them before and LOVE them.

Or perhaps an Angel Fish?

BLAH! So many choices. What would you do?

I wouldn't get rummies as they're very active fish that like a nice, long tank to swim back and forth in. I think slower-moving fish would be a better option.

What about festivums for centerpiece fish?

+1 on the advice of no rummies, they enjoy zipping around!

angelfish do enjoy taller tank, but I've never kept them, so someone else may be able to help you out there

I'd pers not put neither one (Nor Rummy nor Angel) in the tank neither because of sizes.
For the Oto & Shrimp be sure to fully cycle the tank first and let it establish for a lil while before adding them (thou you really do NOT need a "cleaner" crew if you maintain it normal)

Wasn't you pH something like 8? May be easier in the long run on you to simply get fish that thrive in that water...

Oops! Angel is right. With pH of 8.0 ,fish I mentioned with exception of possibly the celestial pearl danio would be uncomfortable. I should have searched previous posts but was instead considering the size of the tank.

Hehe... by cleanup crew... I mean because I just like them. :)

I guess I'll be doing a bit more research on fish for this tank :)
