Here is your profile message to me:
Byron, you've gave me some pretty good advice in stocking my 35 gallon, so what do you think about this. 1 Bolivian Ram, 6 Marbled or Silver Hatchets, 6-8 Lambchop Rasboras, and maybe 2 Barbucca Diabolica. |
Or 6-8 Hatchet fish, 1 male KIrbensis, 3 female kirbensis and 2 barbucca diabolica. Will either of these work out?
Barbucca diabolica is a rare fish, and what a beauty. I had to track it down on the loach site. I've no personal experience with this species, never having found them locally, but they do seem to need some water flow and this is contrary to the other fish. It would depend how you set up the aquascape. With a canister or internal filter at one end some flow could be generated for the loaches and it would be quieter for the other fish down the tank. Loaches are highly social fish, needing a small group, so I would get 6 or preferably more of these if you do decide on this species.
Lambchop rasbora are nice fish, though my favourite of this group of 3 very similar looking species is the copper or Hengels Rasbora. These really sparkle under floating plants. Whichever species, larger groups are best, 8+.
Kribs can be an issue in community tanks when spawning. As I mentioned previously, the Cockatoo would be better in my view.
