| || | Stocking questions and compatibility?
Hi! Okay, so I have a fishless cycling 36 gallon tank and have been trying to do some fish research and put together a stock list in the meantime. It seems like a lot of the fish I like do not actually go together, so I have been making a lot of changes. Even the list I have now, there are fish that don't totally go, but I'm wondering if it's possible? I really like gourami, so I was trying to include some. And I thought a peaceful cichlid would be awesome, but I heard that gourami and cichlid do not go. Is that true even if the cichlid is fairly peaceful and they occupy different levels of the tank? Anyway, below is my stocking list and I am just wondering if the fish will be able to get along and work well in the same environment.
5 Julii Cory
6 Rummynose Tetra
2 Dwarf Gourami
If this does not work at all, what changes should I make or what are some other options of compatible fish?
Just some background info, the ph of our tap water is 7.8 and we have black gravel.
