Looking for new fish
 
30 Gallon FW with no live plants.

1 Male Dwarf Gouarmi
2 Mollies
10 Tetras
6 Corydoras

I'd like to get at least one more "centerpiece" fish to fill in the tank a bit. Any suggestions for a fish (or group of fish, 2-3) that would go well with my current setup?

I'm looking for a colorful and somewhat larger fish (around the size of the Gourmi) or larger. Thanks!

may you specify what tetra it is please :) As well as what type of corydoras

1 Male Dwarf Gouarmi
2 Mollies
10 Tetras (5 Neons, 2 Rummy Nose, and 3 Glow Light)
6 Corydoras (4 Peppered and 2 Sterbai)

finish off your tetras schools before you continue :) 6 of each

ok, thanks.

you should get rid of two of your cories, 6 is too much for a tank with those inhabitants. You are already overcrowded without the addition of those tetras

But I love my Corys :(

get rid of some other fish then, you could always upgrade your tank to accomodate more

is that really overcrowded? i have more fish than that in my 28gal?

I am not a big fan of tetras but you can get some of the smaller rainbows. Threadfin Rainbows grow less than 2 inches and Celebes Rainbows go about 3. They are a schooling fish also but again if it were me I would replace all the tetras with these rainbows. A bunch in tank would look great!

I try to get my fish grouped together, if possible. IE if you get tetras get all the same tetra or if you get corys get all the same cory.

This is my opinion, good luck!
