I'll get a couple of other cories. THANKS!

I must have lucked out! My CAE seem to be very sociable with their other tank mates. The tetras go all around them; even the Oto and the Cory can share the same algae/shrimp tabs while the CAE munches. But when the two CAE are together-- they chase each other. Each one, though, has his/her own cave, so they have their own territory to retreat to. I will keep watching them and make sure they do not get too aggressive.

Would anyone add dwarf gouramis to this mix?

One angel? (to avoid agression and also size for the 65 gallon).

Platties?

I like the idea of another school of tetras, but a variety in size would be nice... ideas?

I think I have lots of room to add: I am double filtered in a 65 gallon. Stock: 18 tetras. 1 cory, 1 oto, 2 algae eaters.

LOL! I would love to, but money money money. Also, we just rescued a baby RES turtle last week, and I have my hands full learning about its care.

Puffers need a lot of room, right? The only tank I have free is my 3 gallon hospital tank!
