well the rekcord(formaly known as the tank of Doom)
is looking a little empty to me.
in there is as follows
3x pepper cordoras
1x dwarf blue gourami(perfectly happy and is on show all the time.long story)
2x ghost shrimp
1x female butterfly ram(the male died.as did the gold rams)
3xplattys
6x neons
8 male guppys
what say you all,on adding maybe some other tetras,
or anything. ??

I would say a top feeder type fish. Hatchets, danios or similar but they might not get along with the groumis. Something with a very distinct color pattern would set it off nicely. Something with orange or similar coloration in a distinct stripe would be cool just for some nice contrast.

have a look,the danios sound good !

sorry it was in the wrong place. :oops:
what say you on Penguin tetras ?
i know they need to be in a group of 6,
the tank conditions are in favour for the penguin.
:dunno:

Don't worry about the wrong place.;)

Problem with the penguin tetras is they'll nip your male guppies.:(

i have 3 dwarf gouramis and 5 zebra danios, and they go perfectly fine... it has yet to happen and prolly wont but if a dwarf gourami ever did chae the danios i think they would be too fast for it...
