worried about overstocking-can you help?
I have a 33g, and I currently have 7 corydoras melanistius, 1 thick-lipped gourami (sold to me as an honey-thanks to the posters here, I would still believe he's just a very big Honey Gourami
!) and 3 royal tetras.
The royal tetras I want to rehome because they are not happy-too hard to find in my city, I can't find more of them and they are pecking each other to death from not being enough to establish a hierarchy. What I'd like is to replace them with other, easier to find fishes.
Problem is, I'd also like to give my gourami a mate. Do you think a couple of thick-lipped gouramis (that's if I manage to find a female, which isn't sure at all), 7 cories AND a school of tetras would be do-able in a 33g? I'm thinking neons, pink neons, maybe rummy-nose tetras. Other species seem too big. What do you think?
