36 gallon tank fish!
 
how many fish can i have in a 36 gallon tank?

what kind of fish do you like. you have to figure out what fish you want first than determine how many. in general once you consider compatibility you go by the 1-2 inch of fish per gallon of water.

i have 4 swordtails, 1 angelfish, 2 red flame goramis,3 cories, and a pleco is that enough for a 36 gallon tank?

Depending on filtration, how you maintain your tank, etc... you could get away with a few more smaller fish.

What kind of pleco is it? Commons get way too big for a 36 :)

i have no idea what kind of pleco it is but if it gets any bigger i am pretty sure my dad will give it back to the pet store. thx for the info bye.

what other fish should i get for my tank?

Get more cories. They are a shoaling fish and prefer to be in large groups. Besides, they are so much more fun to watch when they are in a large group. You could probably get 3-4 more. The angel will get pretty big and will fill the tank nicely. Swordtails can get pretty good sized too. And as stated, depending on what species, the pleco may outgrow the tank. So, other than increasing the cories, I would probably leave the tank as it is. But that's just my opinion. I tend to stock kind of lightly.

oh ok good information thank you! i dont know what kind of pleco i have.do u know a website where i can find the species?

jeaninel 10-03-2009 03:12 PM

Try this one: PlanetCatfish • Cat-eLog
Look under "search all common names", click on the "C" in the alphabet and look under "Common Pleco" to see if this looks like your pleco. It's kind of fun to click around and see all the different varieties.
