suggestions on tankmates for my fish :-) need some more
hi everyone,
i have a 90 litre tank with 2 mollies, 5 harlequin rasboras and 4 cardinal tetras in it, i would like to get somethin else to live happily with these guys but i dont know what fish would be best. thankin you in advance for your suggestions :-)

hmm, 23 gallons. Maybe another group of Rasboras, something with some red in them would liven up the tank. Galaxy Rasboras would be nice adding another nice color patch. Zebra Danios should be peaceful and the other fish wouldn't bother them for the most part. Maybe Leopards danios or some other one that has a distinct color pattern to really set off the other fish and give some real color activity to the tank.

well it depends on if you want larger fish or if you want to stay on the small side. well here are some suggestions. if you dont like these let me know what you are looking for.

SMALL FISH: cherry barbs, guppies, cories, danios, white clouds, rummy nose tetra, black neon tetra, macmaster's dwarf cichlid, cockatoo dwarf cichlid, rams, dwarf gourami, zebra loach, threadfin rainbowfish, celebes rainbowfish, peacful betta

Medium-Large Fish: clown loach, blue gourami, giant gourami, chocolate gourami, red line torpedo fish(might be too big for your tank), silver shark, clown rasbora, sliver dollar, slender betta, pearl gourami, golde opaline gourami, rainbow fish, skunk loach, butterfly fish, mono fish, swords

hope that helps! ask if you have questions :wink:

a clown loach would definately not be appropriate for a 23 gallon tank. you will want to stay away from skunk loaches, i made the mistake of purchasing one not too long ago. they're little terrorists! silver dollars will be too big, and i'm sure with the fish you already have in your tank most kinds of gouramis would be too big.
couldn't say about the other fish, these are just ones that stood out to me as a big no! :?
i agree about the zebra or leopard danios.
i don't know much about cories since i've never kept them myself, but i know a lot of people really love them and i think that would be an awesome addition to your tank. i'm sure someone else could give you suggestions on what kind and how many :P
good luck!

I agree that cories would be a great addition. They would help to keep the bottom clean and will get along fine with the fish you have. Maybe a small group of 3-4 since you are getting close to your limit for stocking.

You might want a bottom-swimmer. Like people said, a small group of Cories would work great and add a lot of fun to your aqurium (3 or more).

Zebra Danios or Cherry Barbs could work well also.
