Passive #1:

6-7 Cardinal Tetras

6-7 Kuhli Loaches

2 Blue Rams
___________________

Passive #2:

6-7 Kuhli Loaches

3-4 Scarlet Badis [Harem]

7-8 of Some Tetra or Rasbora
___________________________

Semi-Aggresive:

1 RedFinned Shark

6-7 Praecox Rainbowfish

2 Dwarf Gourami (Male Female Pair)


So, which options do you guys think is the best fit for a 46 gallon, planted, Filtered tank?

I would go with th passive group. I had a pair of the blue rams in a 20 gallon long and they were just not growing like they should I gave them to a friend of mine that has a 40 gallon and they are awsome! Cardinals are pretty and Kuhli loaches are very, very cool fish! I think they will be pretty in a tank together.

Thank you :) I like that option, too. Probably one of the Passive groups. Does anyone know If Kuhli Loaches will eat clams? My LFS has some and I know i'd have to add thing to the water(plankton?), but would 2-3 of them survive? After the tank is well cycled, of course.

Ok, so they still haven't drawn. But, instead of Blue Rams, I decided to do Bolivian Rams becuase of their hardiness. And, some sort of Tetra. Any Tetra suggestion for a pH of around 7.2?

I think a school of Black Neon Tetra would look very nice with the Bolivian Rams. ; )

Ok, I know I do change my mind very much, but it's part of my nature :/ so, I thought I'd see what the max the tank could hold Is, and I was pleasantly surprised. With an Aquaclear 70:

1 Bolivian Ram

6-7 Kuhli Loaches

7 Rummynose Tetras

6-7 Lemon/Emperor/Black Neon Tetras

1 African Butterfly Fish/ 3-4 Peacock Gudgeons


So, sound good? And any tips on Peacock Gudgeon care? I found the basic, but not if Males can be kept together and such.

In a tank the size of this one I think it would be fine to have a 2 male and 2 females.
