okay so i have a 30 gallon planted tank with a marineland 200 and i had an infection go through my tank and kill almost all my fish :( so now that ive treated it i want some help stocking my tank :) what i currently have is
1 molly
3 julii cories ( i had 5 but the disease killed them)
and a golden dojo loach that my cousin gave to me but im probably getting rid of it because its not compatible in my tank

what i was hoping on getting is probably
1 german blue ram
6-7 harlequin rasboras
and maybe 3 dwarf neon rainbow fish

so what do you guys think about this? if theyre not a good list then what do you suggest? thanks

Welcome to the forum

I do not suggest getting just 3 dwarf neon rainbows. They are a very active schooling fish and do not do well in small groups like that. Also, I wouldn't keep them in a 30 gallon tank - mine had outgrown my 45 gallon (3 feet long).

I think the rasobars are a good choice, and you could get more corys for the bottom. You could also get a couple more mollies I guess.

Why not look at bolivian rams instead? They don't require such warm water.
