75g South American Stocking Help
Hey everybody! This is my first post here and I'm happy to be here! Long time reader though!
I came because I like the advice given here and I need some myself as I've only been keeping fish for about 8 months (my 29g tank). My question is in regards to stocking my new, cycled 75g tank.
Originally, I wanted to do a community tank centered around my lovely Angelfish (my avatar) but so far I've had a horrible time finding tankmates that work. Schools I like are either too nippy or too small for my Angel, and I've noticed said fish are also really small and kinda hard to see in a tank of this size. What I've decided now is instead of a ton of small fish I would prefer to take a South American Cichlid spin on this tank.
I love SA Cichlids and have always wanted to keep them, but I have no experience with bigger, aggresive fish. My stocking idea was the following:
1x Blue Acara
5x Boeseman Rainbows
7x Juli Corys
1x King Tiger Pleco
1x Blood Parrot
I know I'm pushing it with the parrot, but I think that big splash of red would make my tank perfect for me. The only problem is I don't know how compatible all these fish are, especially the corys. The reason I have them listed is because I already have the 7 of them in my tank currently and fishing them out would be a nightmare. What are your thoughts on this setup?
