okay so i will take them back or find somewhere for them
then add 4 neons
then look for bottom feeding catfish you mentioned and add them in about a month?
then it is fully stockd with np space left you would say?
I don't think the Glass Catfish is in our profiles yet, I'll work on adding it; but a 36-inch tank (about a 30g and up) is recommended for a group of 6 glass cats.
You mentioned lots of plants, so if that is the case, the 4 neons and then the 3 corys (?) in a couple days. If you really have lots of plants, all at once is OK, but I hesitate suggesting that because I don't know what you mean exactly by lots of plants. Plants use ammonium from ammonia produced by the fish, but there is a limit as to how much ammonium/ammonia, so best be on the safe side.
So, that gives you 6 neons and 3 cory cats in a 45 litre (12g) tank. As you have plants, I would consider another group of something smallish and not too active as there is no "swimming" room. For something unusual, a pencilfish like Nannostomus eques that swims on an oblique angle, six of these would be nice in a planted 12g. Or 6 hatchets, marble would be best, for the top? Read the profiles and see what you think.
