36 gallon community centerpiece

I have a 36 gallon community tank that I have been working on for the last few months. Currently I have 8 Panda Corys and will soon have 8 Cherry Barbs. I'm trying to research a nice colorful showpiece fish to add later, but everything I look at seems to prefer a warmer temperature. Looking for something that would be comfortable at the 75~76 degree range and still peaceful. Any ideas?

I don't have these, but think they would work ideal temp is 77.

Always reseach and ask questions, also reseach honey gourami.

Please read the articles in getting started I sent you, especially the one.... I have fish and just learned about the cycle.

Here is an additional thread on fish-in cycling.

http://www.aquariumadvice.com/fishin...tep-dark-side/

I recommend fishless cycling , but have done fish-in successfully.

Dwarf Gourami, Trichogaster lalius (Colisa lalia) Dwarf Banded Gourami

I have had this same exact dwarf gourami before! Beautiful little fish and mine was very mild mannered. I kept the temp of my tank, at the time, at 78 degrees and he did fine.

I've looked at dwarf gourami's and they would look great! I've heard they can carry disease at times. Do you know if honey's tend to be healthier?

Honey's are healthier and quite pretty when in breeding mode. You might also consider a single pearl gourami: they're fairly peaceful and should be happy in the mid-70s, which is the low end of their range.

Honey gourami's are amazing. This is a great suggestion.

Honey Gourami, Apistogramma (not a beginner fish), and Bolivian Ram come to mind. Honey Gourami are the most peaceful Gourami that I've dealt with. Multiple males can be kept together without issue.
