I hear glassfish like hard water. Not very colorful, but beautiful just the same.

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.

5 danios
5 emerald cories

3 Swordtails
