So my tank is cycled...fish question
 
I currenlty have the following fish in my tank

4 Peppered Cory
2 Albino Cory
2 black kuhlii loaches
2 Otos

I was thinking(hoping) to add maybe a set of angels, rams and or kribs....what do you guys think about that?


Also, if those are ok....would i be ok adding a schooling fish also? I have a 55 gallon planted tank.

I'd go with Angels since the rest are all bottom dwellers. Kribs and possibly, although unlikely, rams could bully the other bottom dwellers.

I would suggest adding more kuhli loaches. 2 is not enough. 5 is the minimum.

Tetras, angelfish and apistos/rams are a great combo.

Oh, the apistogrammas and rams are different though the blue rams are still categorized similarly with apistos as dwarf cichlids. Bolivian rams are larger and much hardier compared to the blue rams.
