HERE WE GO

Well the title says it all folks. It's time to stock my tank, and I'm in need of some help!!! So here are some of my thoughts... Thanks for the brainstorms!!!

Maximum difficulty (1-10): 8
Minimum fish: 2
At least 1 bottom feeder
No shrimp.
Would like 1 school at least.
Community-semi aggressive. No man eaters.

Not sure what you mean by minimum 2 fish but I would go....
6 Silver Dollars
12 Bronze Cories
20 Black Neon Tetras
20 Neons or Cardinal Tetras
Artificially planted but heavily planted as silver dollars like to eat plants.
I chose the schools of normal and black neons as there colors will look good together, as well as their peaceful nature providing the silver dollar comfort as it is timid. The cory cats are the clean up crew and add activity to the bottom.

Six silver dollars seem very crowded in a 73. I would only have four. I also wouldn't placed them with anything which can fit in their mouths ( neons, cardinals or black neons)
