1 dwarf gourami
6 zebra danios (some are long fin i think)
1 oto cat.

What do you guys think I could/should add to the tank? I still want cories, and maybe another larger fish like maybe a blue dwarf gourami.

I'd add 6 cories and leave it at that so as not to overstock, but then I tend to be quite conservative when it comes to stocking.

If you have enough algae, then you could perhaps consider adding another oto or 2.

How long has the tank been set up?
Water parameters?
How long have the fish been in the tank?

It's best to wait at least 2-4 weeks after adding fish to add more...lets your biological filtration build-up. Go with the cories, wait a while, check your water parameters. I'd leave it at that.

tank is fully cycled, has been set up for a couple months now. I added the oto and the gourami yesterday and will definitely wait before adding more.

Try flame tetras or Kerri tetras for the mid section.

00ej8: I'm with you on the cories. They add a lot of lively movement to the tank. I also think Lupin has hit a point. You have fish that hang near the top and some that hang out near the bottom. Its time to look at what you might like for the middle areas so the tank feels full and you don't just keep adding to get it to seem fuller.
