Smile Hello everybody!!

Whats up everyone im really happy to have joined this and am really excited to see where it goes from here. Since im here i would like to ask you guys what fish i should put in my tank. I had an infection go through my 30 gallon planted tank and kill almost all my fish :( and now that ive treated it i want to know what fish you guys think i should put in my tank. What i currently have is 1 molly 3 julii cories and one golden dojo loach. I was thinking of putting a german blue ram , about 6 harlequin rasboras and maybe 3 neon dwarf rainbow fish. What do you guys think?? What fish do you guys suggest?

Welcome to the forum!
Well, you should complete the shoals of both the cories and the loach.
This Is what Aqadvisor says
Quote:
Warning: At least 4 x Julii Cory are recommended in a group.
Warning: At least 3 x Dojo Loach are recommended in a group.


Warning: Water temperature requirements are not fully compatible between all selected species.
=> 18 - 28C: Molly
=> 25 - 28C: Julii Cory
=> 10 - 25C: Dojo Loach
=> 26 - 30C: German Blue Ram
=> 22 - 25C: Harlequin Rasbora
[Display in Farenheit]
Recommended pH range: 7 - 7.
Recommended hardness range: 11 - 12 dH.
And it doesn't have Neon Dwarf Rainbow Fish, so idk about you stalking level. And I don't know what filter you have.

Yea the rest of my cories died sadly :( and the dojo loach was given to me by my cousin because he was getting rid of his tank but im probably going to get rid of it . what do you think would go better in the tank? ill search up the dwarf rainbow fish and see if theyre compatible. And my filtration is a marineland 200. Hoping to get a canister filter soon

Ok, so with that filtration, your stalking level is 78%...

Sounds good to me, but they still don't like the temps...

And your stalking level is only 54%, so you could probably add something more too. Or, just up the numbers, the schooling fish are always happier with more. :)

what would you suggest to put instead of the rams because theyre the only ones that are not compatible?

Well, I'd say to up the numbers to say, 9 JC and 10 HR.
Other than that... I'd suggest looking through the fish profiles (here and other sites)... Or you could go to the fish/pet store, and see what catches your eye, then research to see if it's compatible. Sorry I can't be much of a help here. Do you have any idea of what you want? ie, shcooling, loners (or semi, like the rams), etc.
