Awks in a box stock completion!
 
Hey there!
I have made a final decision on my 15 gallon awkward hexagon tank!
Can anyone tell me if I can add anything or if I should take anything out?

K so it's:
1 male betta (named Kevin, like up, even though I haven't bought him yet :p
3 platies 1male 2female
3 African dwarf frogs
Some shrimp? Can anyone give a suggestion with species and quantity?
Pleco
3kuhuli loaches

Is that good? Thanks for all suggestions!!

I think that if you are going to put all that in there.... then skip the Betta completely. It's really hard to tell what temperment your chosen Betta with have and may not like to be in with anything at all. Unless someone else jumps in here and says it's ok.
Not sure about the kuhuli loaches either....no knowledge of those.

Kuhli loaches need to be in groups of 6 or more; they get frantic and hide all the time if they aren't. They also do best in soft water. Livebearers like platies do best in hard water. I would chose one or the other with those guys.
