Any kind of fish that will do well in my tank
 
I have a 55 gallon tank with assorted fish (should be below). I need help. Would i be able to add ghost shrimp,4 black skirt tetras and 5 more loaches and still have room for other fish. Since my angelfish and gourami will grow quite big how much fish per gallon of my aquarium. Would there be any fish i would be able to buy locally that will liven things up? thanks for your help.

The kuhlies and tetras like to be in groups. I would add another 3 kuhlies perhaps and another 4 tetras and nothing else.

What do you mean when you say the plec can't grow more than 2"?

Blue sunset gourami is probably Colisa lalia. It won't grow beyond 7 cm. Angels will eat shrimps for sure. The "inch per gallon" rule is useless.

Ok so more kuhlie loaches and tetras and nothing else?

Thats fine i have a picture of my fish. Should i give them a varied diet? Like bloodworms, shrimp, flake food. Here is a video of my fish at feeding time. And what i mean is the kind of pleco i have is a Otocinclus. Go search that up.

Falina 12-13-2007 08:36 PM

That's alright, I know what an oto is. :) They're not a species of plec however which is why I was confused.

A varied diet is best. A mixture of flakes/pellets and frozen meaty food is great. Remember to provide algae wafers for your oto if there isn't a supply in the tank already.

I can't see your video. My computer doesn't have the update of flash or something, but I'm sure it's lovely, LOL!

Fish food available in pet shops. I believe these are hard stuff.

Yeah they are little hard disks of smelly stuff and you put it in your tank and they take on water and become these gross mushy green things that fish go crazy for.. well mine do.
