The glassfish are quite beautiful but Im looking for something with lots of color because right now my tank looks rather boring. I think as of right now my stocking is
5 danios
5 emerald catfish
3 swordtails
5 platies
Some cherry shrimp

Is that overstocked? If not what else would work? I don't really want guppies maybe some endlers. I really don't know. Any suggestions are welcome.
Thanks!

I'd say that's too many fish for a 38G. Also, be prepared for lots of breeding & interbreeding. Check out AqAdvisor.com It's not an exact science, but is helpful in figuring out compatibility & basic stocking.


You can get a lot of color from your Platys. I have a couple of Sunset Wags and they are beautiful.
