Re-Stocking my 35 :(
 
So I plan on restocking my 35gallon as all of my Mollies have died off for no apparent reason, i've done water checks regularly, and everything seems to be ok. But as for my restocking Ideas here is what i Got.

6Cherry Barbs,
6Flame Tetras
2 GBR's (hopefully a bonded Pair)
2 Kribensis

If you guys have any input on those, or forsee issues let me know, or if you think something else would make a good addition please feel free to let me know, this is what im here for.

rams or kribs, not both

no mention of water chemistry, rams need very soft water, kribs can tolerate a bit harder water, as can the barbs and flame tetras, but not if the water is very hard, as mollies need

I just realized that after i made the post, so here are two different options i came up with

1 Male apisto
2-3 Female Apisto
8 Cherry barbs
3 Panda Cory's
1 BN Pleco

Or

2 GBR's (Hopefully bonded)
6 FLame Tetra's
6 Cherry Barbs
1 BN Pleco

The mollies are not in the picture any more, so i will be adjusting my water parameters to meet whichever group i choose to go with.

first option probably best due to temp requirements of the rams, good temp for them will be at the top of the range of the others

a 35 gal tank could probably accomodate the first group with up to 5 corys plus the flame tetras depending on the shape (I assume yours has a foot print of 36" x 12"), maintenance, planting, filtration, etc.

It's a bow front tank but your saying I could also have the tetras with the first group also so I have 2 schooling fish?

the taller tank makes a bit of difference, but yes, though I would keep with the smaller, quieter fish (like some of the pencilfish, tetra, rasboras) and try to get some that tend to stay at different levels in the water column - the dwarf cichlids and obviously the corys will occupy the lower levels, so there is room higher up

I could replace the tetras with dwarf hatchetfish let me know if you think that works
