Stocking Suggestions....

So I finally bought some fish today to stock my 65 Gallon...

6 Denision Barbs
6 Black Ruby Barbs
1 Red Tail Shark

Looking for some other suggestions when I go to my LFS tomorrow for some more fish...

Was thinking 6-10 Zebra Danios for a top level swimmer and looking for a bottom dweller?????? Maybe 2-4 Bolivian Rams???? Kinda Open to almost anything....

You could probably fit 6 zebra danios in there but you'd be fully stocked I think. The shark stays mostly at the bottom, right? I wouldn't put anything else down there with him. Rams are peaceful and the shark is territorial so you may have issues there.

Decided to go this way....

10 denision barbs
6 Black Ruby barbs
6 Tiger Barbs
1 Red Tail Shark

Now that they are in there.....

How much food do I feed them and how often. I have purchased flakes as well as frozen blood worms and frozen brine shrimp. I am clueless on how much to feed them, how often and when....and how do you use the frozen brine shrimp which is in little cubes and the frozen blood worms which are frozen in a big square block.....any and all help would be appreciated

The barbs might need a tank upgrade.
