There are so many plecos that fit the tank. Any Ancistrus will work. Keep one only as males are very territorial towards each other. Small whiptails such as the L010a will also work. Research their nutritional needs first before you buy. They prefer mostly vegetable-based foods but will eat anything you give them.

What gender is the platy? A good ratio is one male for 2-3 females. You might need to add small tetras such as glowlights to help keep their population in check as platies are ridiculously prolific breeders. You can keep an all male platy group if you like.

^^ I think the platy is female, but how do you tell? Wouldn't that type of tetra get eaten by the gourami though? They are pretty small, and the gourami is quite big. Thank you :)

I've never seen blue gouramis eat glowlights. Glowlights tend to be a bulky 1.5-2".

Female platies should have triangular shaped fin near the anus.


Male. Pointed fin is gonopodium.

Hmmm...She'll be fine by herself unless you want to add more platies.
