a 90 gallon tank isnt always better then a 75. standard 90s are the same dementions as standard 75s except the 90 is taller. it can be done but lighting comes into play. tall plants and angels would be nice. do you know what your going to use to light the tank yet? have you thought about filtration? i would avoid the common pleco as they grow over a foot.
It actually is a 75! The guy had his dimensions wrong. Anyway....The lighting he was suing to grow corals so i'm pretty sure it will sork with plants. i'm going to be using the hardy plants too like amazon swords etc...(advice on plants too please).
These fish are all compatible with pearl gouramis :)
I would go with
~ 1 common pleco
~ 2 female pearl gouramis and one male
~ 5 or so male guppies
~ 5 cory cats
~ 7 zebra danios
~ 5 neon tetras
Thanks for the list but I have some issues:
Guppies I don't want because....I think there just glorified minnows and I don't like them(no offence to anyone).
Mollies are a brackish water fish and unacceptable in this tank.
I'd love to get some kind of tetra but idk yet if i want a small schooler(neon) or a medium schooler(black widow) or a large schooler(congo). I'm probably going with the black widows because they are always one of my faves lol unless I get some rasboras or a school of cherry barbs(probably the later)
Danios are going to be a little too fast for me.
Probably going to stick with catfish in this tank instead of loaches. Love cories. Gonna have at least 5.
Maybe some Bosemai rainbow. Like 2? or is that too little?
Common plecos get HUGE and stop eating algae. Maybe a bristlenose or some otocinclus in the future.
So the tank stands at:
3 Pearl gourami(how do i sex them?)
2 Bosemai rainbow(or more?)
5 Cherry barbs(2 male 3 female)
Asst. Hardy live plants(suggestions?)
2 black angelfish(good choice?)(only a maybe)
4? Blue rams
And idk.....add on....
