Hello from a new member

Hello all. I have been keeping smaller tanks (10-20 gallons) for some time I finally moved into something a little more substantial. After my last long distance move I donated all of fish to the local aquarium supply store, so I figured the upgrade was in order. I now have 90 gallons of fresh water with 1 pleco, 2 cory cats, 3 silver dollars, 1 gold gourami, 2 dwarf gouramis, 2 Australian rainbows, 1 turquoise rainbow, 1 African spotted leaf and a clown loach.

I have had pretty good luck avoiding dead loss after setting up...I had 4 neon tetras at one time...but they became food for one of the large fish and a couple of dalmatian mollies that ended up getting sick and passed.

I look forward to working with this community to help give my fish the best treatment and tank mates.

Welcome to AA

I would pump up the number of corydoras to 6, they do best in groups.They are very sociable

Thanks for the tip about the corys...I will look into adding a few more. Any other ideas to brightwn up the tank? I thought about rams....but not sure they will get along with everyone else. Ibknow there are some more colorful rainbows out there.
