I'm interested in:
Cory Cats (like Sterba's or similar)
Cardinal or Neon Tetras
Dwarf Gouramis (I may need more plants)
Rainbowfish (e.g. Praecox Rainbow a.k.a. Dwarf Neon)
Swordtails and Platies (though still not sure I want live-bearers at this stage)
Since I'm trying for three separate species, my main question is on the number required for schooling behavior.
For example, can I accommodate three Sterbae and two Gouramis?
How about five Tetras and two Sterbae?
Are there any other bottom dwellers you can recommend that would be content alone?
Can you start a threat andpost the link in here I wouldn't like to hijack this one and you can get answers specified for your questions
For now I can tell you to be careful by putting two gouramis if they're female they can get along but for what I know males fight with each others just like bettas schooling fish are always recommended to have a minimum of 5 I've heard that neon tetras are a little more demanding on water parameters not sure and for bottom feeders I just know about cories and Plecos maybe someone can give you more info on that
I have 3 bronze cories that I really love
