Actually, it is my new 55 gallon tank that I have not stocked it yet other than having to move my daughter's fish over from cycling her 14 gallon. Long story. At first I was not going to keep the Platties and the Tetra's in the 55 gallon tank once I get my daugher's tank under control, but I think the Phontom Tetras, in particular, do better in a bigger tank. The Platties seemed to look happy even in the 14 gallon. I was not really planning on having Platties in my 55 gallon community tank but they are so darn happy in there (more so than in the 14 gallon) that I don't know if I have the heart to put them back in the 14 gallon tank. I really did not want three platties to begin with but they talked me into getting three since they like to school together. I will keep the Phontom Tetras in the 55 gallons for sure, even though I may not have gotten them when I go to stock it. I believe I am going to do Angels for my main fish...perfect tank for them....taller than the standard 55 gallon. My pH is not as low as what is suggested, but I have had very good luck with Angels in the past with water over 7.0. I even had them spawn. I will be adding more drift wood which can aide in softening the water over time. I am not 100% sure yet what I want to go with.
I don't even know what a Golden Wonder Killi looks like. I will have to look them up. Thanks!
