Stocking options for a 38 gallon
So my mom said if Ii find a good deal on a tank and or stand shed get it for me. Well I went right to CL and found a 38 with stand. Now I am wondering what I could put in it. Any help is appreciated,because I am not good at stocking tanks. I know the inch per gallon isnt correct at all,but I dunno how else to figure it out lol.

I do know I want some more corys.

*Aeneus (how many??)
*Move my pencilfish to it..possibly get more....have 9 right now...
*what else?

I have in my 14 gallon,3 glofish and 2 danios maybe move them over and get more...not sure though...if I do,what can I add to that tank? Maybe some rasboras?

So I used that aqadvisor on the other thread,looks like I can do 9 cory aeneus,9 danios and the 9 pencils. Sounds good to me. :)

How great is your Mom? Congrats on getting the bigger tank. Are these giant danios? I know pencil fish have a small bioload. I also know you're johnny-on-spot as far as your tank maintenence regime so I'd say you could get away with adding a few more fish. Hummm, what to add...

shes awesome!! she loves my fishies. Nah just zebras lol. 3 are glofish. Hmm...I was thinking adding some more Pencils...unless I only add like only 1 or 2 danios so I can get some other fish...have 6 or 7 danios and like 4 or 5 of something...I dunno

Hmm so I did some reading...cherry barbs seem to get along with danios,corys and I suppose pencils too. pretty fish too...maybe 5 of them...
