Community stocking thoughts

I have a 48x24x24 tank. Itís marked as a 120 gallon but with everything going on itís probably more like 100 gallon. 30 gallon sump thatís is labeled as 1050 g/h.

Dirted and covered with pool filter sand. For decor I have a bit of elephant skin stone (also known as seegebirge stone), a piece of manzanita wood, and some ďcichlid friendlyĒ live plants.

I was playing around on aqadvisor and here we are.


1 firemouth
1 blue acara
1 bristlenose
1 rainbow shark
9 kuhli loach
4 pearl gourami
6 Bolivian Ram
site says 76% stocking

Or

1 firemouth

The firemouth is an ahole so it'll probably terrorize your rams.

Thank you for the fire mouth input. Do you think the 2nd stocking option is better? What about overall quantity and selection?

I think the rainbow shark is in the same boat as the firemouth. I'm sure some people have got away with peaceful ones but generally there will be some aggression.

There's a few bigger more docile south American cichlids you could go with.
