Help Stocking My 70gallon!
hi, im needing some advice/opinions on what else i can put in my tank.
it already has
-1 male, 1 female moonlight gourami
-1 red tailed black shark
-1 common pleco
-3 male fancy guppies
-1 khuli loach
-2 albino corys

I want smaller fish but not too small.

rummy nosed tetra ? they shoal together.

i have thought about them but for some reason all the pet shops that stock them over here never have more than two in at a time,. and they never look healthy.
I dont want to go and add unhealthy fish into my tank incase they infect all of the other ones!

that;s a shame. :( would they not order you any in ?
what sort of fish do they have ?

NaomiiSmith 03-01-2009 04:23 PM

they probably would but they never look to good!
They have many kinds but nobody that works there seems to know anything about them!!x

harlquin rasboras ?
glow light tetras
nice big bamboo fan shrimp
have you got a particular fish that the shop has that you would like ?

i love their fancy guppies but would like more variety in my tank.
they have pretty cherry barbs?
and also nice female bettas but i know they can be aggressive!

cherry barbs look nice and are ment to be peacfull,i've not kept these befor
i kept tigers,and odessa barbs.
the cherry barbs should be kept in a large group.

i'll maybe go down and see how they look tomorrow night after my work, maybe get a small shoal of 3-4?
what about the female betta?

willow 03-01-2009 04:49 PM

never kept one,i'm not sure on this but i think they can be as grumpy as males ?
need a Betta keeper to pop in here :)
