I am now in the final stages of stocking my 30g and 35g tanks. The 30g has now been turned into a species tank of cories but I now have to decide what I would like to put in my 35g. It's not a new tnak, it's just that I've moved a lot of fish out of it so it's fully cycled.
I currently have:
1 common plec (I know, I know, but I rescused him from being flushed, so I'm allowed for the time being)
2 bling cave tatras.
I'd like some top/middle dwelling fish. Not too many. Either a small school of small fish, or a pair of bigger fish. I've looked through all sorts of sites, and been into fish stores and I can't seem to find something I like and I'm being really fussy as this is my favourite tank, and I have it set up in a way I really like so I want it perfect. It's reasonably well planted but with an open area in the middle so more types of fish would do well. I also have bogwood for hiding places, but the point is more that I don't want more fish that hide. I love my catfish, but sometimes, it would take a bit of convincing to get anyone to believe there were actually any fish in that tank, bar the BCTs, so I want something that I'll see.
I'm not keen on tetras or danios really, and I've had bad luck with dwarf cichlids.
Also, would kuhlies be alright with the synos? It was suggested that I get some to keep the snail population down but I'm not sure if I'm going to do it.
Thanks a lot.
