Looking for Suggestions!!!
I have a 29 Gallon Tank with 3 Cherry Barbs and 3 Harlequin Rasboras. I have no idea what sex they are. I'm thinking about adding another 3 Harlequins.
Any suggestions on what other fish I should add?
I have been thinkin about....
Flame Dwarf Gouramis?
I'd recommend sparkling gouramis or honey gouramis and then cories, otos or small species of plecos such as the popular Ancistrus and Panaque maccus. There are small species of Hypancistrus that are worth a shot.
how many of each?
8 harlequin rasboras
4 sparkling gouramis
10 pygmy corydoras
Wow! Thanks again!
I love this forum.
Is there a rule for adding fish?
Such as a max number?
Any suggestions on which I should add first, and which can come later on?
I'm thinking about getting more Harlequins first.
Does it matter if the tank has live plants or not?
i would add enough tiger barbs to make a small group of 6-8 to reduce aggression
harlequinns school nicely in a larger group also, so i would add more of them as well- maybe a group of 6-8 for them also.
be careful with pygmy cories, i have not had luck with them living with tiger barbs, they all ended up chased to death or fins bitten off. i think they are just too small, and the tiger barbs think they are food. but in a 29-30 gallon you might be able to have some larger type of cory.
pygmys are real fun to keep, once i moved them to a harlequinn only tank, they thrived, since the harlies don't bother anyone.
Thank you both.
The suggestions so far are good, but I would stick with the cherry barbs rather than introducing tiger barbs. Tiger barbs can be nippy and grow too large and active for a 29g.
OK I added 5 more Harlequins and 3 more cherry barbs.
It's looking nice, there is still lots of tank space left. I'll wait a while though. Maybe a week or two, then add the gouramis IF i can find them.
