Are we talking a regular sized pleco? If so and with the four angels AND gouramis you are already stocked (at least). Glassfish really should be in schools and so should khulis. What are your nitrate readings in your tank? Do you have plants? I don't think you should get anymore fish unless you are considering trading in your pleco and finishing off your schools of glassfish and khulis. As it is I think you should consider giving away your lone glassfish and khuli so that they can be happier in a school in someone else's tank. Glassfish also prefer a little salt in the water.

I agree with scotich girl

glassfish like being in groups and they are so beautiful when they are in groups.....

for the rest I would say probably you knew the answer to your question while you where writting it :)))


sincerely

the pleco right now is 3". so i should have 7glassfish, 7 Black skirt tetras and 7black kuhli loaches? (7 for a school)

scottysgirl 02-17-2008 10:30 PM

At least 5 per school anyway...but I am not in any way recommending that you get these as your tank couldn't handle it. And the pleco will grow, I know he is small now but if he is not a bristle-nose or dwarf he will get HUGE.

SeaSerpant 02-18-2008 09:02 AM

i'll give him away before he gets to big. so could i get those and maybe 1 corydoa?

Cories should be in groups of 6 or more to see the best of them. If you only have 1, he will be very shy.

SeaSerpant 02-18-2008 11:53 AM

4-angelfish
