Three schoolers is gonna be really busy lol. Maybe lower it to 2 schoolers and raise the #'s? Otherwise it looks good.

Looks good to me, but I would raise the number of RCS just in case, RCS are eaten by anything that fits into their mouth.

Thanks everyone and just a thought if I lost a group of the schooling fish could I get 2 dwarf gouramis(male + female) or would I need more than 1 female for the male??

Umm... I don't know about that... Maybe dwarf cichlids? Check out Bolivian rams. but yes, you can take out the 3rd school and add two centerpiece fish.

No multiples of DGs. They are highly aggressive toward eachother and do not do well together. I recommend 1 per tank if it is no bigger than a 55 gallon.

Thanks I'll check them out, I'm a big fan of cichlids.

Noted. I'll scrap that idea. Do u think a couple dwarf cichlids would work? If not I think I'll stick with the original list.

Will they not be aggressive towards the other fish?? That's my main worry.

Dwarf cichlids are peaceful when breeding they can get a bit territorial, but as long as they have hiding places to guard, it won't be anything to worry about. I'm doing a pair of Bolivian rams in my tank

Sure, could you make a new thread? You should probably make a thread or if you have post a link and I'm sure we'd be able to help you. The reason being is that if we help you in this thread it might get off-topic and the mods may shut it down.
