I've just recently setup and began cycling my 55 gal tank. It's pretty well established with plants and such. I've got some Java Ferns and lots of different blades/grass that has begun spreading as well as wisteria that's begun really growing along the back of the tank. Right now all I have is a pair of Zebra Danios but I'm looking to actually begin populating the tank soon. I had a 20 gal before with a few Blue Gourami's and would like to have Gourami's again, but the Mrs. want's Angelfish or Discus. I've been eyeing German Blue Rams lately though as my local fish store has had a healthy tank for a few weeks now that has slowly been dwindling in population...
I would like to have a few small schools of danios and something else (any small colorful community fish will work).
-A pair of German Blue Rams
-2 pair of blue gouramis
-and then either 2-3 discus or angelfish
-a pair of pleco's (undecided on what sort, recommend something possibly?)
now I'm no expert and am relatively new to communities and what works together. In a month or so when all the fish are in the tank it will be very well planted so there should be adequate cover and such for the different fish to have their own areas but am I asking for trouble putting those fish together? What's the most # of fish I should really be looking at? And am I allready over the max for a 55 gal? Just looking for a bit of help and or insight.
