30 gal hex tank - stocking

    I have a 30 gal hex aquarium. Currently has 4 peppered Cory catfish and5 serape tetras. Ideas to finish it off nicely?!? I'm new at this (obviously). ???

    welcome to the forum

    I would ditch the serpae tetras and go with a more peaceful fish. I have a 30 hex and it's a difficult to stock because of the small footprint. I suggest making it a nano fish tank and keep the under 2 inches. If you choose wisely, you could have a few levels of fish because of how tall the tank is.

    How about some killifish. They are small, and I believe, someone correct me if I am wrong, they like the top layer of the water. They grow to about 3 cm and can be very beautiful.

    There are several types of Killifish, ranging from less than an inch, to like 4 inches. "Killifish" isn't very descriptive ;)

    Yes, I plan on getting clown killis for the top of my 30. GW killis are too big though.
