Hello everyone these are just the options I am looking at for my 30 gallon, 24x12x18 Bow Front tank. I was just wondering what you guys would do with it...like how you would stock with these options. I really dont like pushing the limits on my tank so that is a factor too. I realize im asking alot but thank you to anyone who will participate :-)
4 or 8 Swordtails (1 male/3 female) or (2 male/6 female)
3 or 4 Bleeding Heart Tetras
3 or 4 Corydoras of a small variety
2 Blue Rams
4 or 5 Harl. Rasboras
3 or 4 Rummy nose tetras
Again its just a mock up list of fish I like. And I appreciate anyones participation. Also if you know of any other fish im am open to anything. TIA:-)
Ditch the swordtails off your list. They will need much more swimming space than a 2-footer. Pick only one tetra species: either rummy-nose or bleeding heart which in this case, I prefer the latter and increase the number to 8. I'd go with 6 small cories with pandas being the first to come to mind.
Also, 30g is really too small for an angelfish. They need a tall tank, MINUMUM 18".
I like bleeding hearts alot, so im glad they can go in. Can tiger barbs go in with bleeding hearts. I thought aobut just having two decent sized shoals of those 2 species. Maybe a small group of corys too.
Allll righty. Are the corys ok? I saw some peppered corys at the LFS today and decided I have to have them :-P. hopefully in this tank, but I am determined I will put them in a tank of there own if need be :-)
I would say the cories should be fine. They like their own company. 6 is a great number.
Would 6 corys and 6 or 7 bleeding hearts be too much?
naw, i wouldnt think so, im sure one of the experienced folks could correct me if im wrong but id throw the blue rams in there too :)
