36G Bowfront Stocking Question

Hey everyone, I was wondering if I can add anything additional to my 36G bowfront tank with a 50 gallon rated Aqueon quiet flow filter.



I currently have:
5 male guppies
8 female guppies
2 powder blue dwarf gouramis


I wanted to add a few ghost shrimp or algae eater.


The tank has 4-5 live plants that are growing into small pieces of driftwood, a very large ship in the middle with hiding spots, and I was going to add a bubbler eventually.


Thanks in advance everyone!

I would say you are low to moderately stocked. Certainly scope to add more. Those guppys will probably breed though, so i expect increased stock will take care of itself.

Thanks Aiken!


I was hoping the gourami would take care of the fry.


If I assume no new fry, could I add maybe 5-6 shrimp or 5-6 loaches?


And maybe a blue ram cichlid (the peaceful one).

I dont see why not depending on what type of loach. Might need to up your water changes a little compared to what you need to do now.

One thing i would say about a ram as i fell into this. They do better at a slightly higher temperature. I generally keep community fish in 24c and they prefer 26c +. I obviously dont know what you at, you might already have that covered, but thought id mention it.
