So I think I finally have a stock list for my 200 litre tank.

Please let me know what you all think.

Here goes.

2 x Bolivian Rams
7 x Danios
7 x Penguin Tetras
1 or 2 Small corydora species. ( looking for a small bottom dwelling fish, ideas?)

What do you think to this list?

I've been vigilant about overstocking and think I should be well within stocking levels even if I choose a pleco.

I've not included my Chinese algae eaters in this as I'm thinking I might return them to the LFS as they ideally need to be in groups of 5 and I don't want that many.

Today I have been to my LFS and the local PETSATHOME store and have began to fall in love with Rams. Which has made me try to nail down my stock list.


Please do let me know any foreseeable problems with choices of fish or stocking levels etc.


Thank you.



Jon

I don't know about that whole list but a BN pleco is small, I have 2 of them in my 55 gallon tank.

What are you unsure of in the list?

Sizes?
Compatibility?

Well because I've never kept them personally. It sounds good to me but I don't know much about the fish themselves. But from what I do know, it sounds good to me.

Actually, looking back, there are only 3 kinds of fish and they all should be perfectly fine together lol. I say a BN pleco is the perfect one for your tank, that's what I have.

Thanks.

I'm looking for a bottom dweller simply because I want it to help with any left overs as I have nutrient rich substrate which I don't really want to be gravel vac'ing up.

Well I'm sure you know this but a clean up crew is no replacement for regular cleaning. What kind of substrate do you have, because the gravel vac really shouldn't affect anything
