also i was looking into these species for my tank: |
Cardinal, pepperment, Panda, and Rummy Nose Tetras
and some Cories.
any opinions on those? i was never a tetra fan before for some reason but as i walked through my LFS i kind of liked the differences and they caught my eye.
the rosaline sharks have been on my "to get" list for a while but they are pretty expensive so i have put it off till now.
You can read info on some of these fish in our profiles, click on the shaded name [if the name in posts is exactly the same as used in the profile it will shade, common or scientific]. Roseline shark is actually the Denisons Barb
. Odessa Barb
. Many species of Corydoras are included under "Catfish" section. Three rainbow fish species are under the "Atherinids" section. Many tetra are under the Characins; the Panda Tetra is under Dawn Tetra
and as noted there this is not a good community fish, I would avoid it. Cardinal Tetra
and Brilliant Rummynose Tetra need soft acidic water, so I would consider waiting to see how acidic your tank becomes, or maybe diluting the water with pure or soft water; we can discuss later.
Redtail Botia is Yasuhikotakia modesta
also sometimes called Blue Botia; not in our profiles yet, but it reaches 7-10 inches, will really dig in the substrate, needs a group (like all loaches, they are highly social fish) so you may want to reconsider; a 60g is not a lot of space for this fish, and it will certainly limit plants and other fish species. A group of 5-6 7-inch loaches that actively dig will decimate a planted tank.
