I am in no rush, but back to my original question. Any suggestions for additional stock?

How about a red severum (like in my avatar). While a larger cichlid, they have pretty small mouths and are pretty laid back. A risk does exist that your neons might eventually start disappearing.

The black neons are a pretty nice size. Much bigger then cardinal tetras and bigger then the harlequin rasboras

oh I thought they were regular neons for some reason.

I think a severum would be a nice addition. In my experience with them, they are gentle giants. I would just get one though.

Kind of like the idea of that one big peaceful fish but read that the Severums are really hard on plants. So unfortunately that might eliminate them

I know mine eat java moss. Funny thing is it comes out no different than when it was eaten But yeah, plants are on their menu.

This is a little outside the box, but how about an african brown knife fish? Once they are comfortable in the tank they are pretty active, and fascinating to watch swim around the tank. Unlike many knife fish, this one is not nocturnal.

Outside the box is totally what I want. Seen knife fish before and think they are totally cool. The big question is would an African knife fish go after and kill my fish. If no then that is exactly the fish I want

I wouldn't have suggested it if I thought that that would be the likely outcome There are no certainties though. There always exists the possibility that it won't work out, but I think the chances are much better that it will work.

Think it is exactly what I am looking for. My final concern is will I be I overstocked if I get a knife fish. With my current stock I plan on get 4 more Cory's and loaches. Also something to eat algae later on. Maybe a pair of bristle nose plecos
