3 platies
4 ? platy fry

i'm after some advise on stocking with fish,possible change of inmates if needed.
it's looking drab and not the center peice it should,photo can be taken tonight if wanted

Where you been Willow?
Were it me,,I might keep the two Pearl gourami, and the red eye Tetra's. I might find new homes for the rest and switch cory's to Schwarz Corydoras and increase the number of Red Eye's as well as add some Lemon Tetra's, Bleeding Heart Tetra's ,Emperor Tetra's. And or, some neon or cardinal Tetra's.

Heyo, Personally I would add some YoYo Loaches. I love them and they have considerably brightened up my 55gal in my living room. They get along very well with the Tiger barbs, and I imagine they would do well with tetras too, but I am not sure. Thats my suggestion. no opinion/advice on what you would have to switch out though.

(A lot of people recommend sand since they like to play around. I have small gravel and have had them for almost 2 years with no issues, They still play, and have never hurt themselves.)

Lainey, I'd love to see a current pic. I know you really like loaches so maybe you should consider adding some?? We both love clowns but we both know they are too large (once adults) to be long term happy in your tank due to the size. I like cbirk's suggestion on the yoyos and I also like the golden zebra or angelicus loach. Loaches are just plain fun. ;-)

cbirk 12-26-2010 12:39 PM

I love clown loaches. Some day I will get a tank big enough to have some. it always makes me sad when I see them in the LFS here because odds are they are going to end up in someones 10 gal tank :(

work has been very full on,children moving on,children moving in, been hectic days and nights lol
but mustn't grumble at least i have a job. :)

like the ideas there thanks.
in regards to the loaches,Kym you know how i loved my loaches,and i would in a heart beat
have clowns again,i miss them the most out of all the fish i lost back in the summer.
i'll take a shamefull picture for you,please don't rip me too much,i feel quite ashamed
i think i especially like the idea of the cardinals,they always look nice in a large group.
i like rummy noses too,very much actually and the schoal very nicely too.

aunt kymmie 12-26-2010 05:53 PM

Me? Rip you? Never!

willow 12-26-2010 05:56 PM

maybe you should,the tank is awful,and after i returned shrek and fiona
to the fish store it's even worse,tiz amazing how much they made the tank clean.

aunt kymmie 12-26-2010 05:57 PM

Nope, I won't do it. But I do wanna see that pic....waiting...;-)

willow 12-26-2010 06:05 PM
