I'm going to be setting up another tank soon and I wanted to get some advice / opinions on stocking options and compatibility. The tank is going to be a 30g planted tank that I am inheriting from my friend's mom. She doesn't have too many live plants in there now, but I plan to fix that
And there are no fish in there at the moment. So i'm starting essentially fresh, other than her lovely moss-covered rocks that i want to keep
So the one species i definitely plan on putting in the tank is Sparkling (pygmy) gouramis. I've done some research and the opinion on how many should be kept together seems to vary quite a bit, so i'd love some input on that!
I'd also love to keep bumblebee gobies, but not would love input on them as well. I'd probably keep one of the two true freshwater species found here in the nano-fish section at FranksAquarium.
As for the rest of the fish I am open to suggestions. I'm thinking about possibly doing a few groups of different species of nano-fish, particularly some of the micro-rasbora species, or possibly ember tetras. (Again, see the franksaquarium list.)
I was also pondering doing Threadfin Rainbows (but am not sure how they'll do with the gouramis?), a few guppies and one or two groups of schooling tetras (such as rummynose, neons, cardinals or something like that) instead of the nano-fish.
Any and all input, suggestions and compatibility advice would be most welcome! thanks in advance!
20gH Planted tank, 5g Planted tank
1 Crested gecko who has a 60g Hex paludarium in the works
2 Dogs, Leo an 11 year old Bichon/poodle mix, and Cody, a 3 year old Poodle.
I enjoy having a zoo to care for!
