Schooling fish for hardscape-only tank
Hello all, I posted for some advice about a month ago on re-doing my 40g breeder tank and thanks to those for all the suggestions! Here is my attempt. I know it's not the best photo with some reflection and shadows, but it gives you an idea. Right now I just have 7 panda corys and 6 old neons that were from my other tank. The neons are 4+ years old so will not replace them.
As I wait for some dwarf water lettuce to provide cover, I am trying to decide what type of fish I want for my main school. After researching lots of tetras and barbs, a couple of my faves are Diamond tetra or drape-fin barb. I LOVE the bright Diamonds, but I've read they grow to about 2.5", so I'm still on the fence whether they will look too big for tank. I was thinking I should get a school of fish under 2" so I can get a large school, about 17-19 fish. I really like a triangular shaped fish
for this setup. I've had rasboras and rummies over the years, so looking to get something different in this tank. I know I've posted this question before, but maybe by seeing my tank, more suggestions may come...THANKS!
