Blue rams need warm water water than most other tropicals. I think some of the cories might not like it much (not sure what species they are, possible they would be ok, Byron would probably know). With most fish you can get away with having a couple of the parameters stray from what is ideal for that species, in my experience this just isnt the case with rams. They either get sick or just waste away if you try to keep them in water that is too cool/hard/basic.

Damn you set that up fast!

by many accounts yoyo loaches can be fairly aggressive. And angelicus loaches are just....gregarious.

I think you've got plenty of bottom dwellers as it stands, and would look for fish to occupy the rest of the tank like I think you said. In a 55 I would look to do dwarf neon rainbows, some cherry or gold barbs and.... a group of festivums.

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

Yea, I don't joke around or waste time when it comes to my tanks. Everyone is in and settled. the juliis however seem really shy at the moment in the new tank .Only upgrade taking a moment is the 75 to a 240( because that involves finding a group of men to move it and take it up stairs for me) oh well maybe ill eventually get a ram tank when one of the kids bettas die. I can play it off like its for them hahaha
Hmm dwarf neon rainbows?? I'll check that out. You think the will not bother my tiny loaches ? Those little ones are EVERYWHERE in this bigger tank. I guess they like it. I had no idea yoyos were aggressive ... But I didn't own my previous ones long enough to know them ... And compared to that tank they were sweet puppy dogs even if there was some level of aggression lol

Threadfin rainbow? You think a handful of those would work?

Threadfin rainbows are really easily out competed for food. The suggested tankmates are almost always nano sized because of that.

Man!! I really like those fish. I've never really looked into rainbows before and that one really is awesome looking. They did have tiny mouths but my kids have NLS small fish food..those little micro pellets that float. Everyone in the tank pretty much eat off the sand. Yes even the "bettadora" sinks his pellets to eat at the bottom with his fellow corydoras. The yoyo's( or angelicus..I really should post a pic to get an ID on them) really either eat the crumbs from the corydoras mess they make of their food or climb the plants. I haven't seen them surface eating. Do you think knowing that...this makes Threadfins possible? Are they surface feeding fish?

They look so much like my yoyo's did. Sorry it's a little cloudy. I was a little hasty last night pouring the water into the tank lol. They are very active and social.

you can see they really are teeny tiny lil ones.


So whats the verdict Angelicus or Yoyo?

Many loaches look very different when young versus old. There are several species of loach that have similar markings, and there are even variations within a species. I think they'll have to get a little bigger to know for sure.
