Any ideas
Hi I am new to fishkeeping and bought my very first tank around 2 months ago: a Fluval Roma 90L
Since then I have stocked it with these fish:
- 1 Male Albino Bristlenose
- 3 Red Wagtail Platys
- 6 neon tetras

I am hoping to add at least 1 more type of fish to the tank and I was wondering if anybody had any ideas on what I should get.

I would love a fish that is sort of "the centerpiece" of my fish tank: a colourful fish that would be happy in my community tank.

Any ideas?

(oh and I did a fishless cycle beforehand and all tests are normal)

Honey dwarf gourami?

You're stocking is pretty flexible as you don't have any easily picked on fish (ie long flowing fins, poor eyesight, slow). You should be OK with most community to semi-aggressive fish as long as they aren't large enough to eat your neons.

A single Ram would be very pretty (just not a pair as they will either fight each other, or breed and take over/kill everything). Bolivians are known to be a bit friendlier and hardier than German Blue's.

There are a variety of gorgeous gourami that would work as well. Personally I wouldn't recommend the dwarf just because they have been bred with so many hormones that they are a rather immuno-comprimised fish.
