    54 gallon bowfront!

    Good morning. Well I dont think it makes a big difference , if you want it to be a semi aggressive tank, I think youll have to leave the tetras and harlequins , maybe something like a phanton tetra would would be better able to defend itself, but sorry I dont know much about cichlids and semi...

    54 gallon bowfront!

    OH ? maybe they calculated it for a juvinile, anyway . Your list seems about right , its the cichlids that are going to be a bit of a problem since they are quite aggressive , so they would probably not do too well with the tetras , they'll most likely eat the small little harlequins, The...

    30 Gallon Tank 125 Litre - 30 Gal - What to stock?

    Hello I think a 30 gals a bit too small for an angel , maybe one , the pepper corys and phanton tetras would go good together. A siver dollar , parrot chichlids and most plecos get too big for a 30 gal. I think maybe one or two angelfish and like 5 corys will be okay . hopefully...
