Tank suggestions?

Hey everyone, I've got a 55 gallon tank with 6 glo fish (zebra danios) 6 neon tetras, 4 black neon tetras and 4 glo light tetras. Any suggestions for any suggestions for any other fish that would go along peacefully with these fish? I'd love to find some bigger fish to put in there, like gouramis, I just don't want it going after my other fish

I have dwarf neon rainbows and a pair of blue rams in my 250-litre (approx 66 gallon, I think) tank. They get on fine together and with my tetras. You might want to research them further as possibilities.

Meanwhile, I'd increase your tetra groups - I'd get at least another 3 each of the black neons and glo-lights, and lots more neons.

How funny, I too was going to suggest Dwarf Neon Rainbows!!! You can also look into livebearers & barbs. Odessa barbs are pretty cool looking if you have the right water parameters for them. Rasboras would work as well with your current fish stock. There are lots of options.

All your neons and tetras tend to school together, dont they, IrishMafiaDG?

Yes actually, what I love about them :). They certainly do look great all grouped up together. The Glo Fish look great together too, and they all get along nicely. I recently moved the neon tetras from their 15 gallon tank to the 55 and they fit right in with the other tetras

Yeah, I use to have some brilliant rasboras that would school with tetras and danios. They look like a cross between pencil fish and black neons to me, and they are really calm and peaceful.

Have you thought of any other fish to go with them yet?
