ok... i would deffinately get rid of the plec cuz u will have to eventually. of you do that you could get cories or catfish which ever you perfer. that should hopefully be good with that sized tank. i know how you feel with the glassfish and loaches, i have some fish that i would never get rid of even if it meant getting rid of all the other fish in my tank.

i might make it a 60g tank soon because i have 2 tanks in my garage both 60g but one i am useing as the main tank and the other as the sump but there is a problem with that because their both the same size i took out all the baffles in the sump and probably take the sump and make it my main FW tank and use the 50g FW tank as my sump since the sump has no scratchs and my 50g FW tank has scratches galore. would a 60g be a good size for this many fish without the pleco?

What kind of catfish were you thinking of replacing the cories with?

nope actually this one.

4-angelfish
2-blue sunset gouramis
7-black skirt tetras
7-java loaches/black kuhli loaches
1-albino pleco
7-glassfish
7-corydoa
3-african dwarf frogs

i am doing research on how to make a planted tank so it will be planted. i am going to upgrade to a 60g so i will change the list to this:

6-8 Angelfish
3-5 Gouramis
5 Black Skirt Tetras
5 Black Kuhli Loaches
5 glassfish
3-5 African Dwarf Frogs
Some sort of non common pleco or some catfish

So would this work?

there is no way you will be able to fit 6-8 angelfish in a 60 gal. i would say that 1 pair would be good but i have heard a few people saying that even 2 would be too much in a 60gal. the angelfish will get very agressive when they get older which would mean they would need even more space so i think i would skip them if i wre you. if you took out the angelfish you could fit everything else in the tank with a bit of room to spare i think. i would definately get a catfish instead of a plec. maybe even some cories or something like that to clean the bottom because even though the glass cats are cats they wont clean up after the others. what kind of gouramis are you thinking about?
