Hi. (: I'm new here, nice to meet you all.
I'm trying to find help with stocking my 75g. It's new, but cycled fairly quickly already (I have gotten to my nitrate levels - that means I'm cycled, right?). My current stock is:
3 Male guppies (We only wanted two, but the LFS owner mistook a very yellow male for a female; we didn't notice until the next few days.
5 Female guppies
9 Cories (I'll have to get them ID'd later, I forget their kinds, but I know they range from 2-3" fully grown.)
1 Male betta
4 Dwarf frogs
We also have some plants (some kind of grass, something that looks like clovers, and a sword something or other. I'm not experienced with plants yet.) We plan on putting in some Java moss and gradually replacing the remaining plastic plants with real plants as we get better at taking care of them.
My question is what else to put in the tank. We primarily want small schooling fish, but I know that my spouse would be happy with something larger and more colorful. I'm new to community tanking, so it's confusing trying to mix everything.
We were thinking about Glofish or Tetras ... Maybe rainbows? I don't want anything the betta may see as a threat, though.
