42 gal stoking need some ideas.

KO so I have a 42 gal and I don't know what to put in it.

The stoking is one 36cm common pleco and 4 silver dollars.

The fish must not be to large(not over 35cm) and not to small(not under 10cm)

The tank is 80cm long, 40cm high and 50cm wide.

PH6.8

GH 6

Few gouramis? Maybe a few angelfish but it might be slightly small, you have soft water so there are a ton of tetras you could get that would shoal. Could get some kuhli loaches, hatchetfish lots of options

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

I have a gourami tank.

I have a angel tank.

Hatchets are out of the tank.(not a very good lid)

I like the bigger tetras like the diamond, bleeding hart.

Make a nice soft water tetra tank then, get your diamonds and bleeding hearts and maybe some small ones like cochu and black neon tetra

That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

That is a big pleco for that size tank. Between that and the silver dollars, which will also outgrow the tank, it's difficult to make any suggestions.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

The SD are out.

I think I'll use the tank as a grow out for angel and convict fry.
