OK so I think I have finally decided on what I will be putting in my new tank (not so new it has been gone through a complete fishless cycle)... So let me know what you think of my plan!

8 Neon Tetras
6 Spotted or Harlequin Rasboras
3 Sparkling Gouramis
2 Honey Gouramis
3 Panda Cories
and maybe some Kuhli Loaches???

So tell me what you think? Overstocked? Understocked? Will they all get along?? Etc. etc....

20 neons tetras and 10 harlies will do for the mid level.:) Neons hardly contribute a large percentage of bioload.

But I've been wrong before.... :wink:

They are surface dwellers so I expect you have a lot of swimming space in the middle level for 20-30 neons and 10-15 harlies. If you make your tank heavily-planted, you can have more than that simply because plants also serve to be your filters.
3 Panda Cories
and maybe some Kuhli Loaches???
Get more than just 3 panda cories. 6-10 would be nice along with 10 kuhli loaches. Who knew kuhlis are less bold when kept in a number of 4 or less?:shake:

Be sure to get the neons and panda cories last. Both are a little sensitive to water conditions compared to the rest(minus the sparkling gouramis which I never tried).
