Right, what other fish can i get?
i currently have a 28 gallon aquarium (read my signature) and a pair of Rams and 2 mollies. I'm still waiting to see if the rams will survive, they are rather delicate, but when I'm sure everything's fine, what could I buy?
I would like some cories, would these be ok in my tank?
also, how much stocking space do I have left, and are there any fish you suggest?
thanks everyone. :D

As it has been mentioned already that Edinburgh's water is very soft, your blue rams should hopefully thrive well.:)
6 Sterbais or Panda cories should be ok.
I'd add 8-10 diamond tetras or harlequin rasboras. I prefer diamonds though.:mrgreen:

Ya agreed with Blue. You could get 6 or so Cory's it wouldnt hurt ;) And diamonds are very beautiful....We could go on and on but those are just a couple

mayby a fancy pleco like L204, L002, L333, L183, L400
would look nice.

Thanks for your suggestions, yes, I would quite like to, as well as cories, put in a small shoal of tetras. (or harlequins, even though they aren't actually tetras) After I've got 6 or so cories, and 6 or so small tetras, I'll be pretty fully stocked, won't i? :)

yes ma'am you'd be set :D

ok people, thanks for your suggestions.
I'll wait a couple of weeks and then I might put in some more fish (cories or tetras)
Also, I forgot to mention it, I think shrimps look really nice. Would just some normal aquarium shrimp (I know there are different kinds though) suit my aquarium?
I will probably get a few Golden Apple Snails as well, because they are often for sale in my lfs. If that's ok?
Thanks again everyone.

Amano shrimps and cherry shrimps will do. Provide thickets of plants for them to hide or your blue rams will hunt them.
Blue rams have a tendency to eat small shrimps unless the shrimps are given places to hide.

Good luck, Kathryn.:mrgreen:

thanks for all the advice, if I didn't have you all to ask for help, I would have a very different tank, probably a worse one!
So I thank you all!

No problem, Kathryn.:D
Good luck with your blue rams.:love:

Take care.:)
