Fish for my new tank = Giant Danio , Dwarf Grourami , One small Pleco , Dalmatian Molly |
Suggest me some more community fish with extraordinary interesting personality :)
There are some issues with this stocking. Giant Danio (Devario aequipinnatus
) is as its name implies a larger danio; attains 6 inches, is a shoaling fish so it needs to be in a group, and it is very active (fast swimmer) so it needs space, especially length. A 4-foot tank is the minimum; I suspect your 43g is not this long, so I would not recommend this species. Also, the active swimming of the danio can easily upset more sedate fish like the gourami. I would not keep these together.
Some of the smaller (medium) danio would be fine, we have 2 or 3 in our fish profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the screen, search using "danio" and it will list them. However, all danio are "active" and gourami do not appreciate this. Also, there are serious health concerns over the Dwarf Gourami, as noted in our profile of this species.
No mention is made of your water parameters out of the tap, so it's difficult to suggest possible fish combinations without knowing the water.
