    Centerpiece fish for around 70F in a 40g?

    40g breeder cycling, I thought I had my stock planned out but I'm having second thoughts. My previous plan was a tropical community but now I'm thinking of going subtropical. I really want CPDs and my panda corys need a better home. Thoughts?

    Bolivian Rams and Pearl Gourami compatibility?

    Can those 2 live together peacefully? I have a 40g breeder cycling and this would be my ideal stock: Do you think it's enough space? Or should it be one or the other? Recommendations welcome! Side note: It's planted with a mix of sand for the bottom dwellers and gravel for the plants.
