Who has fish regret?

You agonize for weeks planning your perfect stocking. You spend hours on aq advisor with multiple stocking ideas. You research every fish carefully and finally stock your tank.

You sit back enjoying the ambiance but still have this uneasy feeling you made the wrong decision. Wondering if you should have done a cichlid tank or a different community stocking.

So....

Been there, done that !
Was just staring into my 50g thinking 'if I I take those 2 back & get 12 more of those & maybe one each of those , then I ll be happy with the tank'.
I have 3 50g & only one of them is 'done'. Love this hobby!

^ haha yea that's why how I've bought most of my other tanks. There's always that fish at the store you just can't pass up. And that fish always seems to be the one that isn't compatible with anything it seems like for me.

I have been messing with fish for over 30 years. There are a lot of more common, easy to breed, fish I just never got around to spawning. I've done some really hard fish to spwan and at this time looking at going back and working with the easy guys. I actually had a pair of Belonasox in the early 1980's -likely before most of you-and just recently got another small group. Very cool and better than I recall.

Yeah. I don't really like my harlequin rasboras at all, to be honest. I'm just not interested in them.

We has a group of white fin tetras that had to go back because they harassed the cories to sickness, so I certainly regret them.

Yes, I have definitely felt that uneasy feel of being unsatisfied with inhabitants after doing all that research and such.....its a bummer sometimes because you feel bad taking them back to the lfs but you don't want them either.....

Bigger tank, need a bigger tank...

Might end up regretting neon/cardinal tetras. Nice fish with great colour but not absolutely convinced they work in my tank.

My angels. I wish that I had waited to get the koi angels. Once the platys come out of my tank The color balance is going to be way off.

My red eye tetra, he is quite a character but has attacked two of my guppies and is super territorial. Might bring him back.
