Maybe
2 rams
10-12 rummy nose tetra
Bn pleco

Just a thought

Rams are awesome but IMO hard to keep. Make sure you stay on your water changes and should be no problem

P.S. This was just a warning. I bought a few a year or so ago and ended up killing them 'cause i didnt know how to keep them.

Electric blue rams are selectively bred German blue rams. Keep in mind that "selectively bred" often, but not always, means "inbred." Plus they are expensive compared to regular blue rams.

You can always ask at your LFS if they can order Bolivians for you.

the tiny computer is full of delicion!

If they hard to keep I'll probably skip them for now till I have more experience. I'd rather wait it out till I find fish that is suited for me. I'll go with the 10 black phantom tetras. Maybe get some fancy guppies. Then I'm thinking a pair of angels. Would that be OK? I plan to buy a 4ft in December. Might go full cichlids on that or my beloved oscars.

Depending upon the angel they may pick on the guppies. Maybe I've just seen some bad eggs though.

K, I'll try the guppies. Should the angels pick on them I'll move them to the planter tank and leave the shrimps. Then I'll just keep at the Cory's, the bpt and the angels. I might add more cories of a different type to make up the 8. Would that be OK? Thanks for all the help, sorry bout all the questions. You guys rock

The questions are what this is all about! Cories are fine with angels. I even kept some with my african cichlids for a while.

Sorry more questions. I looked around a little more and found I really really like the kuhli loaches. Can I add bout 6 of them and do only the 4 cories? Together with 2 angels and the 10 phantom tetras? Would that leave me over stocked?
