What are the possibilities? I am probably going to get one from a friend who recently upgraded to a 150 gallon.

Oh and in my 12 gallon I have some guppies, swordtail mollies, cories and otos so whatever I get will have to get along with this.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

What kind of pleco?
Right now split between a 10 and 12 gallon I have:
2 guppies
1 dwarf gourami
1 balloon molly
1 swordtail
2 oto
1 bronze cory, 1 albino cory, 1 spotted cory
1 mystery snail
some platy and molly fry

Could I add
3 more otos
2 angelfish?
2 more of each type of cory I have
5 khuli loaches
2 german blue rams
10 harliquin rasboras (or some other type of schooling fish)

Would this be fully stocked? If not what are some common types of fish (danios/tetras) that I could add?


The others on your list I don't think my LFS has...

Guppies and angelfish won't mix well. Get 6 each of those corydoras (albino and bronze combined). Without the angelfish, you can add more harlequin rasboras or get some diamond tetras.

As for pleco, try ancistrus, Panaque maccus or Sturisoma. Look at planetcatfish.com for some small species of Hypancistrus.

I will keep the guppies in the 12 with my african dwarf frog because I really want the angels. Is everything else ok? How would x-ray tetras do? I will try really hard to find a smaller pleco. I believe all petsmart has are albino, commons, and rubberlip. I will try the other smaller petstore in town though too. Thanks for all the help!

Take some time on the planetpleco web site. I did some homework and ended up finding a smaller pleco for $15 when to buy him online it was $35 plus $40 shipping. The lfs just didn't know what they had!
