One Year Fish Tank Owner

I've had my aquarium for a little over a year. It's a 60 gallon fresh water aquarium. It has had everything from goldfish to bettas to angelfish and beyond. I currently have 1 veil angelfish, 1 male swordtail, and one giant danio.

My interest in aquariums started with me buying a one gallon fish tank and a blue and red betta. The betta unfortunately has died but my love for fish has not. One month after I bought the betta, I asked my dad for a 30 gallon. He shocked me by bringing me a 60 gallon glass aquarium. I put goldfish in it at first but the aquarium just wasn't at it's full potential. I gave my goldfish to my brother and I bought the fishes that I currently have now.

I just need a little bit of advice. I want to get more fish but I just don't know which ones I should get. I know that I absolutely want a pleco, I want more giant danios, I want more swordtails, and I want more angelfish. I just can't figure out how many of each I can have in my tank. I really need help finding a balance.

Welcome to Aquarium Advice! I suggest you get some mire Danios. They like to be kept in schools!

I know they do and I wish I could find more, but everytime I go to the store, they don't have any.

If you ask the people at the LFS they will probably order you some giant danios. If you want a pleco there are several that would do well in a 60gal just do your research b4 you add anything lots of plecos will outgrow a 60. What kind of filter are you running? That's need to know info if you want stocking help. And do you know about doing PWCs?
