Stocking question
 
We are going out to get my sister some fish for her 20g tall.

Its fully planted and right now has just 6 black neon tetras.

She was interested in getting some corys later on. Possibly dwarf corys... but not for a few more weeks.
She was also gonna get some MTS since she has sand substrate.


With this so far, does she have room for some honey gourami? if so how many?

If not.. what about another small shoal or 2 of tetra?

Honey Gourami will work, but not more than 1 male with 1 or 2 females. Check the photo in the profile to discern male/female.

If you get the gourami, Ii would get 2 more black neon tetra to increase that group. I would not put more shoaling fish in. If you do not get the gourami, then another small shoaling fish could work, 6-7 of a quiet peaceful fish, not something that actively swims. There are some nice "dwarf" species like Ember Tetra, Dwarf Rasbora or Mosquito Rasbora if you have soft water.

Corys are fine with whatever you get. I only meant not another upper shoaling fish (tetra) species if you get gourami. But a group of 3-5 corys, or more if you find the dwarf species, fine.

Okay, awesome! Thanks a lot. We ended up going with 1 male and 1 female gourami.
