Ah..you know, Joe, I'm only interested with diamond tetras as the tankmates for discus. Add cardinal tetras to that and I'll drool.:love::crazy:

Hmmm I like your options that you just stated.
"three angles three dicus a pleco and some cory cats"

Liking it how bout this? : 3 angels, 3 discus, 2 pleco ( or bristlie's ), a school of cory's, you could do a shoal of about 10 cardinals. I think thta setup would look nice. The angels wouldnt eat the cardinals because they are bigger than neons. ( But if your in my position, i have angels and neons and its fine ! )

so what ya think about 2 anglefish 3 discus 8 dimond tetars and 1 candyplec

Nick 09-13-2006 07:15 PM

Um....You have the room so I would make it at least 3 angels. And yes the fancy plec doesnt hurt but i would get a regular plec or a hard worker for algea like a bristlie....your sending mixed signals here I just put what i thought would look good in my last post ;)
