Smile Showpiece fish for a 30 gallon

Hey guys I was just looking for suggestions for a nice "centerpiece" type fish. It would need to be a community fish, capable of living in a planted 30 gallon with harlequin rasbora's and two german blue rams and corys. Thanks in advance for any/all ideas.

I had a couple of black lace angelfish in a 29g and when mature, they were certainly "centerpiece" fish. I have also used Pearl Gouramis as my centerpiece fish, although once in a while the males can get a little grouchy with one another.

In my opinion I would not use Angel fish as they need more room and need to be in a groups unless they are a breeding pair. What is your ph and hardness then maybe I can give you some ideas.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

I didn't see that fish in the profiles. What is a German Blue Ram? Don't think I've seen it sold here. Okay, I see it's a Ciclid - I don't think of those as "community". Pretty fish.

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

The German Blue Rams are great as a community fish they are not aggressive at all maybe a little territorial when they have fry but thats about it. If you read the profile and research them you will see that they are a dwarf cichlid and not like normal cichlids.

Yeah I love my rams, I have a picture of one of them in this months photo competition :) and yeah I'm thinking gourami's might be a good route.
