Dwarf cockatoo looks good too but, arent cichlids known for being aggresive? And if ever i'll get a khuli loach, will there be a conflict between those loaches and my cories? Because, they both dwell in the ground.

- About the Angel fish, is there an angel fish that do not grow more than 3 inches? Maybe I'll get them when my guppies are plenty enough, and use the angel fish to feed on the fry to prevent over crowding.

For the Kuhli Loach & the cory, they are both peaceful fish, so they can live together.
I'm not sure if there is an Angelfish that gets less than 3".
For the cichlids, not all are aggressive. Some are aggressive (the bigger ones are).

Ohhh. I've just read in the tropical fish profile that angel fish lives in salty water so I guess I'll cross mark the angel fish in my list. I guess I'll stick to different varities of guppies for now and some corydoras beneath.

Thanks for the answers again Jawsey.

The angel fish cichlid lives in fresh water but it gets to 6 inches long and 10 inches tall with its fins.

Oh, I never knew that Angelfish needed saltwater. In all of the forums that I have read & the people that I know have always had them in freshwater.

Last question guys! Sorry for keep bothering you guys. This is final.

- can I keep different varities of guppies at the same time in my aquarium? I will buy guppies later and planning to buy different varities with different genders. 1:2 ratio.

yes you can keep different kinds of guppies together. I would stick with 5-6 guppies and the cats. Your going to end up with a lot of guppies and unless you have a plan to give them away I would slow down on wanting to add too many fish.

Yes, you can keep any type of guppy together. If you plan on breeding them, I would stick with around 3 or 4 guppies because they breed like crazy. They have babies every month (28-32 days).

Either a molly or 2-3 platies would be great. They are both live bearers and prefer the same water quality. In addition, they are both small.The problem with angel fish and any other south american fish is that they prefer soft water...unlike guppies. Cory cats are pretty adaptive though, so good choice for a bottom dweller.
