would i be ok adding some tetras? or would the gourami eat them when he grows bigger? what sort would you reccomend? neons and cardinals are lovely but i've never had much luck with them. years ago i had some and of the shoal that i had, two of them jumped out of the tank (even though i had a cover on it - how they got out i dont know), several got sucked into the filter and the rest died mysteriously. thats pretty much my experience with any small fish species summed up, actually. i'm worried the current would be too strong for tetras, even thought its a gentle current.

Yeah.... I don't think so. You might have the filtration to sufficiently clean the water but I really don't think you're going to have the space. It really is quite a small tank for so many fish.

ok, just wondered :) i'm still not sure how many corys im getting or what species. i guess i'll probably decide on the day, as a lot depends on whether the panda corys are still on sale or not (they were when i got my first 3)
