We do have the choice between stocking based on the fish's needs or our wants.

Always provided we remember that the fish's needs take precedence over what we may want.

Fish are living creatures and it is the responsibility of aquarists to see that they are properly cared for and provided for, just the same as for any pet, animal or child for that matter. Fish have certain needs, which differ for different fish; forcing any fish to "adapt" to what is not natural for that species is not responsible.

I'm not saying you are suggesting this; but some new aquarists/members reading your statement could take the wrong slant. And one of the goals of this forum is to promote responsible fish care and keeping.

Drawing from my experience in the aquarium hobby and the vast amount of information available in print and on the internet, and and also from the thoughts of the posters here (that's right, -you- guys), I am planning to try ideas I have for an aquarium.

If I feel I can find three species suitable for a nice visual of three swim groupings in the limited space, I will try it.

I'm really starting to favor the Honey Gourami now- it's a little smaller and the ones I see in person are nice fish. I guess you can call the tentative plan 'Fire and Honey' now.

If I were to add otos as I originally considered- I'd add them several months down the line, so I'd have a lot of time to think about them anyway. But I'm not favoring them for this build- among many things, apparently they're big frequent poopers.
