My first fish were danio sp. I had (sorry no Latin) zebra leopard and pearl. The pearls were my favourite of all these. I think the zebra were rerio.

Quick question as you will know (save me digging out the books) will they fit the water bill? +T slight acid, softer scenario?

Edit-just checked- kind of zebra with a pearl topside!

yeah, Brachydanio rerio - although I think the genus name has changed now! Pearls same latin name as they are a colour morph of the zebra. Pearls I can recall right now, but my friend Google can help - give him a shout

There are a lot more danio specise. We have some spotted dwarf danio - nice looking fish.

You could also try asian rummy nose, also nice when they colour up and a little less 'run-of-the-mill'

Talking

Many different rummy nose, like bumble bee goby. Please be specific, the zebra striped tailed ones look nice (best to me), not so sure the potential eel may enjoy the lovely light snacks at some point!
Rummy nose yes eel no. Eel yes giants yes.
Need a lid for the eel, I never did get to making a proper top cover, can't decide on "the" design.
I actually quite like the giants, kind of fish nostalgia for me. First fish in my first tank at least the colour form is similar. Don't forget some form of Loricariidae to complete stock/community.

Thank you ALL for the input! Some great choices so far! I may have even named some of them, oops, I know what that means! MORE stock!

Eel-Texas (I can't call it tarpon!) Great name I think!
Giant danios-The Pippettes, like Gladys knight or other old Motown quartet! Obviously after pip! It's the only way to name a shoal!

More suspects will be considered for the foreseeable future.

Hill stream loach, as yet un identified.

These things absolutely loved the bag, this was the only way to get them out. For now (after quarantine) they may live in the old puffer tank. I forgot to get the name from the store, there are a few similar species.

I love hill stream loaches, but they like temperatures colder than what my fish like and lots and lots of flow.

Tut tut, not enough research.

I've always wanted some! I think they will end up (now I've read some more about them) in a tank specific to there needs. I have the space above the 120. I guess I will put the glass catfish in as well as they are also mountain stream fish.

Kind of biotope, no plants just rounded stones. I may have to actually go and buy a tank! First time in 8 years.

I also got 12 more glowlight tetra as I only have 3 left. So now I'll have 15 of each, glowlight and black neons.

I read about these fish years ago, last fish room I had Yo yo loach B.alrmorhae with the glass cats these were the species I chose to finish the set up I just never got to buying any.

I like them because they are unique looking for freshwater fish.

Oh yeah, sorry, the asian rummy nose isn't a tetra... more of a rasbora...
Sawbwa resplendens Don't look much in a bare tank, but check colours on google.
