I particularly like the Danios. Very cool. Also considering loaches in the aquarium as they seem like peaceful and community fish. The Black Ruby Barb are cool. Only problem is in the end I will also have to find the fish and options seem to be limited here in NZ so got to work with what is available. I know the loaches are as have seen them.
Am I right in thinking generally Cyprinids
are one of the more easy going and community species of fish?
Can you tell me, when it recommends fish are in a group of 6 or more etc, does that mean 6 of the same variety or just 6 different fish in the tank that could be made up of various compatible species? For example Bleeding Heart Tetra which I like, "Should be kept in a group of at least six but preferably more"?
