pH is about 7 (it goes up after the filter is turned on, at least in my 10 it does) and the GH is 75. 0 idea what that means.
I haven't even set it up yet (making the stand ATM) so I am still planning. I just need to write it down on paper and rule them out one by one . . .
How tight do rummy nose, neon tetras and cardinal tetras school? What is an algae eater I could keep with them?
I NEED TO MAKE UP MY MIND!!
I would say research a little more then->>>>>>>>AqAdvisor - Intelligent Freshwater Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor

I went through that stage with my current tank I'm stocking. What actually helped me decide was to watch a bunch of videos on youtube of the fish I wanted. After seeing these fish in proper setups with their best colors displayed, I easily made my choice. Cardinals!

Now to your question, rummynose are some of the tightest schooling tetra. In the videos I've seen, they kinda look like a school of fish in the ocean. Cardinals and neons (I'm assuming neons because I've only ever looked at cardinals) are more of a case-by-case basis. In really large numbers (more than you can fit in your tank) they will school very nicely, but in your size tank they will most likely just be shoaling. I expect them to in my 29 gal also, but I love their colors.

That was in like February I tested it. I lost the bottle to test it (proof of my skill :p). I also have rock from my freind from the river behind her house. I'll test it tonight.

I have a freshwater 55 gallon tank with a Green Severum and I was wondering what tank mate would be the best option, either a Firemouth Cichlid, or a Pearly Compressiceps.

Neither would work because of tank size to mix. You would need 100 + gallons to mix either pair

The site does have Tropical fish profiles, that tell you all you need to know. Clicking on the shaded name or clicking on the second tab from the left will take you there. This is also a good site for stocking AqAdvisor - Intelligent Freshwater Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor

If you want a really close shoal id go for the rummynose, the ones i have are very rarely apart from each other, apart from the game they play called lets turn around before the leed fish notices, can be funny to watch. I have a shoal of around 30 neons and altho the do group together they arent really that close, you get splinter groups and stray fish, but the colour is amazing when they are grouped. The Cardinal would be prety much similar to the neons. As far as algae eaters go i have CRS and a gbn pleco and they get on fine but then thats just my experience. You could try going down the route of snails tho, can be fascinating to watch

I dont mean to come accross as direspectful Bacon is good but you appear to have gone from asking for a free background and how to make dividers to offering designs and stocking help in roughly 2 months, i must say you gotta be a very quick learner
