Help...Me Stock My Tank?

Uughh! I keep finding fish that i want, but can't get because a 30 gallon ain't gonna cut it/the fish are agressive/etc.....sooo.....

Does anyone have suggestions for a stock list for a 30 gallon tank? I am a beginner, so think easy..i know almost nothing.

In my 30 I have a school of habrosus corydoras, a Bolivian ram, and three platies.

There is an endless amount of things I could list.

Best thing to do is to go to your pet store and write down all the cool fish you find. Then come back and ask about them. Or just look online.

I would give stocking suggestions, but there is just too many to list .

Who say's that you can't have more than one tank? Just get one more... just one...

What fish did you want that you couldnt have? Maybe there is a similar miniature.

Wait is this a salt tank since it's in the reef section?

Fresh hmm, when I was a kid I loved neon tetras.. Kind of a small, simple fish but easy to care for.

Maybe some cories and livebearers? A cool Endler perhaps?

A neon tetra school is a must-have IMO. Depending on where you get them, they are pretty easy to care for.

Any type of tetra is usually good, but as always, there is some exclusions to beginners. Look up some livebearers and tetras, and we shall help you in your research (Should you have any questions).
