Stock list for 44 gallon....

First I want to thank the very intelligent 1077 and Byron for helping me out. They are two of the many on here that really know there stuff you guys are great.Anyway here is what I am think for my 44 gallon I got this weekend after it cycles I will add one type of fish at a time with a week or two in between as long as water parimeters stay find. Please let me know what all of you think if there is a breed you would or would not put or anything you would change.
Here goes:
3 Cory Cats
4 Dwarf Gourami
4 Honey Sunset Gourami
6 Harlequin Rasbora Tetra
6 Black Skirt Tetra
6 Buenos Aires Tetra
So what do you guys think? Is it ok or is it to many fish?

I am so happy for you that you are getting a bigger thank. Now for the not so happy part, I am not certain but that sure looks like a lot of fish for a 44 gallon tank. Hopefully someone will come along with more information.

Good Luck with the tank as I saw your other one and it is beautiful.

Thank you Red. If I need to adjust the amount of fish its no problem. I could maybe do with out either the Buenos Aires or the Black Skirt all though it would be hard to choose between the two. LOL

Very risky gourami stock most reccommend one male per tank however most of us with planted tanks cheat. Do your research on gouramis and decide which one/omes you must have and repost. I have peaceful tempered gouramis that just get along maybe because i have alot of plants. I would feel safe to say that a powder blue dwarf and a honey will probably be great togetheer.Buenos aries eat plants and overwhelm slower moving fish, i find them obnovious.

I would keep everything you have but ditch the gouramis. You can have 1 and maybe one other fish that size with him. Depending on how much maitenance you plan on doing you shouldn't be overstocked if you stick to the tetras and 1 gourami.

I do weekly PWC and gravel vacumming. I don't have real plants so I am not worried about them getting eaten. What if I do 1 male and the other 3 female gourami or would all female be better? The dwarf gourami I have kept before in a well planted (fake plant) tank and they did fine there was 2 of them in a 20 gallon long tank not sure if they were male or female though. I just really like the way they look and they only get to be about 2 inches. If they are a really a bad idea suggest to me something that is colorful and about the same size that would work.

Rams! You could keep a fair few in that sized tank and they look brilliant! The black skirts would make perfect dithers too.

Willie I agree that the Rams are beautiful but the need a lower Ph than what I can give them. But thank you for the suggestion.
