I am wanting to build a tank around a bolivian ram as the centerpiece. I currently have a 29 gallon planted tank with
1 male guppy
2 sparkle eye something or other that I think is kin to a white cloud
3 corydora hasbrostatusdwarf
5 Otto cats
4 nerite snails
I plan to upgrade this tank to a 40 gallon breeder tank, but can move any or all of these guys into a 20 gallon long that currently has a lone powder blue male dwarf gourami. The gourami is alone because he is mean to everyone else. I have talked to the LFS
and they will take him back.
I have the bolivian in a QT tank and am already in love with his amazing personality. So I want the 40 to be built around making him happy. I've read they like dither fish and wonder what might be good. Some other fish that I like are sparkling gourami, peacock gudgeon, and pearl leeri gourami but my foremost concern is for the bolivian and having a peaceful tank.
Thanks in advance for any help.
