Hello everyone, I am very glad to be here!
I have kept Fantail Goldfish for years but now want to try something a bit diffrenl.

I have made a short list of fish I am highly interested in, and would very much like some stocking advice to do with compatibility and any possible problems with my choices. My goal is for a lively active tank with fish that have real personality.

My shortlist:
Spotted Hoplo Catfish (megalechis thoracata)
Peppered Cory
Bristlenose Pleco
White Cloud Mountain Minnow
Rainbow Shinners
Gaint Danio
Glow Light Danio
Zebra Danio

I'd very much like to know if the hoplo would be okay with the cory cat. I mean will the cory find it stressful to live with a bold hoplo. Also would the hoplo be safe with the smaller fish above.

Best wishes,
Rebecca :)

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping. Glad you joined us.

Most of those listed are in our fish profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. When the name (common or scientific) is used exactly as it appears in the profile, it will shade as some of those have and you can click on the shaded name to see that profile. Info in the profiles will answer your questions initially, concerning water parameters including temperature, compatibility, minimum tank size, numbers of the species (for shoaling fish), etc.

Some of our profiles are not completed, like the Hoplo Catfish, so to answer your specific questions on that, it is generallypeaceful with small fish like tetra, etc., so should be no problem for similar corys.
