40 Gallon Stocking
I'm re-setting up my 40 gallon bow front aquarium after having to take it down to build a house. I just got done spray painting the stand/trim/hood and putting some more silicone on it tonight so in 2 days I'm going to be filling it up.

My idea..

4 Cory Catfish
3 Angels
4 Balloon Mollies
5 Neon Tetras
4 Rainbow fish OR Rams

I know your not supposed to mix angels & neons but I never had a problem with them.:roll:

And I want to add some real plants and maybe a bamboo shrimp..anyone suggest any better fish or what you could stock my tank with? BE SPECIFIC

Maybe some Keyhole Cichlids?

hey this is kinda off topic but.. my male guppy seems to be bullying my neon's... he bits the tail off.. i read that they were surpose 2 go well together.. any ideas?

peteyyo your best bet is to start your own thread in the freshwater fish section.

original poster, i personally wouldnt put 3 angels in the tank. 2 will pair up and the third will become the weaker link. i actually would prob. avoid angels all together. i would do a minimum of 6 neons and a minimum of 6 cories. im not sure on the cichlids as thats not my cup of tea.

if this were my tank i would go with a painted black background, black substrate, plants, cherry red shrimp and a large school of neon or cardinal tetras.
