You have some room. You should increase the Roseline sharks as they are a schooling fish and should be kept in groups of at least 5-6. Beautiful fish and will make a nice centerpiece fish but they are pricey.

The first unknown pic looks like a Dwarf Loach (Yasuhikotakia Sidthimunki) and should also be kept in groups.

The 2nd unknown pic is possibly a Panda Garra. I don't know much about them but I believe they're ok on their own.

You can check out the fish profiles. All these I've mentioned are under the Cyprinids group. The Roseline is there also under Denisons Barb.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

yeah the go for 40$ the one in there right now doesnt seem to like it by himself.

the dwarf loach doesn't like eating pellets so im worried about having to have blood worms all the time if im going to get more of them.

They may be establishing a heiarchy. However you still only have 3 of them, so I recommend going out and getting 3 more for a total of 6. you might also want to add some cardinal tetras.

a word of advice, it doesn't look like you were considering it, but keep all livebearers out of this tank [different ph]. i also highly recommend adding a pump, because some of your fish like waterflow, this may help the roselines and a bunch of live plants (more than what you have right now) to help simulate natural conditions.

some german blue rams could compliment things too. plus red cherry shrimp on top of your ghost shrimp but those are a little bit more expensive. good luck!

Hey the only other tank I have had a comet goldfish could he stand the different ph? Also what ph do I need ?

Could I get one of those underwater propellers instead of s water pump?
