Stocking my 50 gallon ideas..

Hi all,

I am struggling to think of ideas for my 50 gallon tank, it is heavily planted and the filter is rated to a 100 gallon tank so there is plenty of filtration.

I currently have 2 mollies, 3 peppered corys and 2 baby silver sharks.

I am looking for colourful/schooling fish to make the tank pop. Also how many fish can I ultimately put in this tank?

I'd look at a couple of schools of fish, bottom feeders and a centre-piece fish. Maybe a nice gourami.

One or two schools oftetras would be nice. Iím not fond of the concept of ďcenterpiece ď fish. Almost all fish are happier and healthier with others of their own kind
