Stocking Ideas for a 30G
I need some ideas for fish in my new tank. It is a 30G, and has a lot of driftwood with hiding spots. I am adding mostly live plants with a few silk plants. I 100% know I want 6-8 Tiger Barbs and maybe a RTBS. I want some suggestions for other fish. I was thinknig cories, loaches, platies...the list goes on. Thoughts?

Danios are your last options. I believe you've been told before that RTBS will not tolerate other bottom dwellers with that tanksize.

Ah, I must have forgotten.

I have a few ideas in my head. I was also thinking about adding some Dwarf Gouramis or Harlequin Rasboras the mix, so that the RTBS wouldn't have any other bottom-dwellers to deal with.

If I took out the RTBS, I was thiking of adding cories with Chain Loaches/Kuhlii Loaches.

The tank has a lot of hiding spots, and will have a lot of plants.

My first idea is Tiger Barbs, a RTBS, a or a few Dwarf Gouramis, and something else if I only go with 1 Dwarf Gourami.

My second is Tiger Barbs, cories/loaches, Harlies/Gouramis, etc.
