I have been given a 75 gal bowfront tank that currently has 5 fish in it. It has 1 Kissing Gourami, 2 tetras (don't know what type as I have not seen them yet) and 2 orange and white fish (the current owner does not know what they are but she stated they are not goldfish)
I am bringing the tank back to my house tomorrow, but I know down the road I will want to add to the tank as I was told all the fish in there now are small. I already have a 30 gallon "sick" tank set up for new fish before moving them into the 75 gallon.
I just need more information on how many of what I can put in there. I really love tiger barbs and from looking online at many different places I found (according to websites) that they would be ok with the gourami.
Now I can't find much information other than just basic information on the kissing gourami (and I never owned one before so I really don't know much about it)
So here are a few questions:
Do I need 2 Gourami or should 1 of them be just fine?
How many Tiger Barbs can go in the tank?
Would 2 Cory Catfish be good enough for the tank?
I love having a fun, colorful tank and I know my kids (11 years old) will love having a tank again. Also at the very worst case along with the 30 gallon we will also be getting a 10 gallon tank... so I guess if I don't want the unknown fish in the big tank I can always put them in one of the smaller tanks and still have a "sick" tank...
Please any advise would be helpful... Again I am not looking to rush out tomorrow and buy new fish, maybe in a few weeks once I know that all the original fish are taking to the change and fully healthy.
