I highly recommend getting a school of 4 or more zebra/pearl danios! They are very active, colourful and peaceful fish.

As for the pleco, a fish store in my area has a deal where you can trade your large pleco for a baby pleco in the same price range. Maybe your stores have something like this?

Danios are also considered easy to breed, if your interested in doing any of that. And no, they do pretty well in most community tanks.

A danio is bred by using a low water level in a long tank with a coarse pebbles or even a kid's glass marbles as the substrate. When in breeding condition, danios will chase each other up and down the length of the tank with the females scattering eggs and the males fertilizing them. Without a proper bottom cover where the eggs can fall out of reach, the fish will then go right back and eat any eggs that they can find. Instead, if you allow the fish to breed and then remove them to another tank, many of the eggs will hatch out and become very small free swimming fry in a fairly short time.

Well it's a source of food for them. And if they're slow enough to get caught.... Darwins theory...

Well i honestly cant say much about this, because ive never done it. Will be attempting soon though :P. But from what ive read on here, if shes losing her energy, and her gravid is getting larger, shes probably pregnant.

Check out my tanks. :)
