sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum but, after reading the choices in the fish section, I thought it might be better posted here...
here are the fish my kids and I are stoked about - also because of the area we live in - which is small towns and no large city center anywhere near us, we are limited in choices...
neon tetras - maybe 6?
red phantom tetras - how many? (suggestions please)
powder blue dwarf gourami 1 or 2?
some type of bottom feeder a cory maybe?
red cherry shrimp -2
does that make for a peaceful community tank? according to what I've read so far, they should be all quite compatible. (?)
Thanks! Our tank is 45 gallon.
It all looks good to me. You seem like you know how to stalk a tank. Personally I feel that neons look better in schools greater then 10. And I would try to get more cherry shrimp you might be able to get them to breed then which is fun.
I would probably if it was me do 12 neons, 2 dwarf gouramis , 3 or 4 shrimp, maybe 4 phantom tetra, and a cory or algae eater of some sort. But thats just my ideas its all about what you think looks good. Of course I would probably put it in a planted tank XD but I'm glad you got kids interested in fish.
Looks like you have a good plan so far. I would do at least 6 of the phantom tetra and 8-10 neons. Dwarf Gourami are very pretty fish but I would just do one male. I have tried multiple and ended up with some aggression problems. Cory Cats are great, very peaceful and fun to watch. Go for at least 5-8.
