Need help with a RE-stocking list
My water parameters read: Ammonia: 0
Soft water, don't know the exact numbers.
Temp: 79 degrees
I want fish that will NOT eat or damage the plants. No more landscapers. They must get along with the current residents which include. 1 Blue Gourami (my fave) 7 Tiger Barbs (sassy but cute) 1 Rainbow shark (owns the bottom of the tank, but hasn't behaved too aggressively) 4 Otocinclus (tied for favorites spot) 2 mystery snails (It is a mystery I got talked into getting any snails)
Please, bring on the suggestions. I would love to hear stories of how your fish get along if you have similar stocking lists. I was wondering about getting a dozen schooling fish. That might keep them safer from the fin nipping Tiger Barbs? I have not actually ever noticed the Barbs going after anyone else in the tank, they pretty much keep their monkeying around to themselves. The Blue Gourami swims right in the middle of their tom foolery and watches as though entertained by their stunts.
I am wondering about Platy's, Tetras, Guppies? What do you all think?
