My 4ft, 50gal tank is nearing completion regarding the plant and fish stocking. I've got a lovely low light setup with DIY CO2
, swords, lots of crypts, java fern, val, etc. I'm really happy with it. I am now looking to add a final fish or two to finish it off.
Currently I have:
3x yoyo loaches
2x siamese algae eaters
2x bristlenoses (peppermint m, albino f)
6x odessa barbs (3m, 3f)
Unfortunately I've recently realised the filter I have is probably one size too small (Eheim 2215 - should have got the 2217) so I don't want to stock too heavily for fear of it not handling the load.
My thoughts at this point are:
2 more odessa barbs
1 more yoyo loach
or 1 red-tail shark
Any other ideas or suggestions? Do you think it's better to increase my current fish or add a new one?
