I see people with all kinds of fish in one tank. I don't know any larger fish to keep with my small fish with out any trouble. Talk to you later. Jim
I live in Virginia, an hour south of DC in the country...... but I'll hit the road to find a good fish shop and HOT is one of them.
Jim, I REALLY like your stock, you have some great vairety and a 38 is perfect in my opinion - manageable yet large enough to have some different species.
You may want to add a couple more cories, I believe they do best in groups of at least four.
As far as a larger centerpiece fish: you might consider a Male
Apistogramma Cacatuoides aka Cockatoo Cichlid. They are a small cichlid that are amazingly beautiful and would be an ideal addition in my opinion and they do sell them at HOT from time to time..... I probably would not add a pair, if they spawn which is likely you could have a lot of turmoil in the tank.
Again, your tank sounds truly awesome, I'd love to see some images.
