True FW Bumblebee gobies are hard to come by. Most are Brack, and will not survive long term in a FW enviroment. Also, I beleive they like to be in groups (???), but that would need to be backed up.

Also, in that stocking, if you did manage to find a true freshwater bumblebee, you'd need to target feed it with frozen bloodworms or live black/white/grindle worms and aother assorted live and frozen worms and crustaceans.

Yeah, bumblebees aren't well suited community fish.

Shrimp could definitely be added to your tank if you're looking for inverts. If you're looking for a funky looking fish, check out Farlowella catfish.

They are shoaling fish, so they really need to be in groups of 6+. A shoal of 5 inch fish really shouldn't be done in a 30 gallon.

There are some very nice smaller rainbows that would look great. Personally, I love threadfins, but there are many others that would work great as well.

Provided the water is hard and alkaline, bumblebee gobies should be fine long-term IMO. Most information is outdated and most species should be fine in FW. What you should worry is how to feed them.

Could you post your current stocking plan? This discussion has gotten so long that I'm not sure what you want anymore :P

Why doesn't anyone research a little? Easier to post, I guess. Try this link.

As far as gravel color, darker colors have a calming effect on fish.
