Hmm, stocking scheme #3

Ok, i have decided not to get cories due to to many problems.

Here is my new scheme

7 zebra danios
4 red coral platies 3 female 1 male
6 ghost shrimp
1 Freshwater clam (maybe)
Im pretty sure i can fit more, i would like another type of schooling fish)

THe tank is a 20 gallon high.

Ph is 7.6-7.8, thats why i want livebearers since they do good in more alkaline water

Pentazona barbs? They're better than tiger barbs which have a tendency to nip fins. For tetras, you'll need to slowly acclimatized them to high pH. Go with the diamond tetras. They're lovely. If not, red phantom tetras(Hyphessobrycon sweglesi) will do.:) I prefer both though.

Well i put them there because they can help eat up leftover fish food meaning i can fit a tiny tiny bit more fish.... but i know what you mean
