Dwarf cichlids and .......
And what? My ph is is stable at 7. Here's my list so far

1 Para Pleco L-124
3 Aggrizzi cories
1 Swartz cory
1 Julii cory..I'm working on getting 5 more

I'm definaly going to get
1 pair of Blue Rams
3(maybe) pairs of dwarf apisto cichlids

I know that I need smaller fish for the top 1/3 of the tank so the apisto's feel safer if other fish are swimming around. The question is what fish go well the apisto's that the apistos won't kill? They're not aggressive cichlids but they are still cichlids and act like it at breeding time.

any faster moving tetras and barbs are fine, avoid long fined slower moving stuff and your generally allright.

Although apistos are cichlids, and quite spunky they rarely kill tankmates even at breeding time from that ive experienced.

suggestions on species for appistos - Borelli, Agassizi, Macmasteri, and, Iniridae

If money weren't an issue, how many pairs would you suggest in a 55g?

Really? One pair with the GBR? Only one? :cry:

I would have to go with one as well.

I think that will end up being ok since I found some barbs last night that I really liked. Actually there were 2 types that I really liked. I bought one school I don't remember what they were named so I'm going to post some pics. They are so fast it's hard to get pics of them.
