Due to inaccurate information from the fish department at Petsmart, I am sitting with a tank full of inappropriate fish. I have 2 Leporinus in a 60 gallon planted tank. Anyone that knows these fish like I NOW do, knows that they are plant eating fish that can become quite aggressive and also grow to over a foot long.
I also have a Rainbow shark which limits my bottom fish choices. I had hoped to add Loaches or Cory's but don't know that I can with Mr. Rainbow Shark.
Once the Leporinus are too big for this tank, I will be re-homing them. I am working on finding a place for them now. Looking to a live fish store here in hopes of getting a store credit for them and maybe the rainbow shark. They won't tank the Barbs, they were firm on that.
Anyway, I am hoping to start coming up with a plan for new fish. I am looking for suggestions. At this point, any fish I get MUST get along with 1 blue Gourami and 8 Tiger Barbs. I also have 2 Oto's in the tank. Also.... NO PLANT EATERS.
I wasn't sure if Cory's would work since I have Eco-complete for substrate and I am not sure if that is too rough of a surface for them? Anyone know?
At this point I am just hoping for some good options. The tank is 4 feet long and relatively heavily planted. Getting heavier by the day.
