Hello. I have a 75 gallon tank with 8 congo tetras, 6 zebra d anios, 5 panda corycats and 1 cherry barb. Would like to add more. Any suggestions?

I think the best place to start would be more cherry barbs, it will like having some friends.

I agree with Matt. Add at least 5 more cherry barbs. You could probably add a few dwarf cichlids if you are into them. Another option is Gourami's or a some Angels.

I would definitely get 5+ more cherry barbs. If the tank is established, then I would maybe try boesmani rainbows.

personally i wouldn't go rainbows since they like much warmer water vs. the corys and danios you have. it is around a 5-10 degree difference. also smaller fish like danios are more timid around larger fish like rainbows. gouramis are a better option. with a 75g you could do pretty much any gourami besides giant gouramis.

IMO you can keep all your stock you listed at 77 degrees without issue.

Thank you all for the responses. I think I'll look into getting some gouramis and definitely more cherry barbs.

I thinks that is a good plan. I recommend getting only 1 male Gourami TOTAL per tank. Even if they vary in species. Good Luck
