Well, I'm waiting for the water test to nail them down but I've compiled a list of potentials. The main criteria is size, nothing that will be over two inches. I would rather have larger schools of smaller fish than singles or pairs of larger fish... But my daughter needs to weigh in on these choices once she knows that she is getting the tank. (She sort of knows, after all, buying animals as gift isn't the best idea without some idea of how they may be received)
We both need to do some research so I am not setting my mind on anything until Christmas. I decided on going with the planned plants right away and the first school of fish in the first week.
I'm looking at dwarf loaches, oto cats or corys for the bottom. I like the bandit Cory but it may not workout.
Tetras (cardinal is a first choice), rasboras or perhaps some pencil fish for the middle to top
I don't know if danios are compatible. I'd like shrimp and snails, depends on the fish mix though.
All my "ideal" fish are either larger than I can accommodate (angels for instance) or are not good for communities.
I already entered my aquarium info, even though it's empty, so I'll update that as I build it up.
