Suggestions please!

Hi everyone,

For my fishroom I have the following tanks that I can't decide what to do with-
4- 10 gal
4- 20 gal
4- 29 gal
1-55 gal

Please throw some ideas at me! I've been looking into doing panda barbs, Cories, tetras, lots of different fish but I can't choose! I'm not sure I'm ready for really complicated fish that are super hard to breed. I have been considering bettas. Really not sure! Any idea is welcome!!
Thank you!
Emerald76

10 gal: have 2 hospital tanks & 2 tanks for bettas

20 gal: fiddler crab tank (brackish), another with a small school of barbs, and the other two for gouramis or tetras

29 gal: Bolivian rams in one, check and see if there's any cichlids that'll fit into a 29 gal, have a hill stream loach tank, and for the last one have maybe a lone angel with cories.

55 gal: COMMUNITY TANK!!!!!!

(Just ideas)

If you breed Bettas you can use many of those tanks as grow outs. What about breeding corys?

Thanks all!

I have been looking at breeding Cories as they are some of my favorite fish. I was thinking maybe a colony of 20 false Julii in a 20 then a 10 gal growout?

Everyone of those 55G stockings sounds overstocked in my opinion

I agree. 4 discus would stock that tank by itself, not to mention the angels and everything else.

The third 55 is entirely nano fish, I can't see how that would be overstocked unless I added hundreds. I guess for the first one, no discus. I can lower all schools in the second to six each.

I don't think a gourami and rcs will mix. My dwarf gourami made quick work of the ghost shrimp I added.

It's a sparkling, many people have kept them with shrimp. However, I see your point...
