I posted about this tank a while back. But wanted to get some more ideas as I am currently setting it up. It will be a non-heated 30 gallon tank. The temp should stick around 72 degrees.

I'll be moving my 6 long fin zebra danios into the tank as well as my 3 white clouds. I'll be getting at least 3 more white clouds once it's set up.

I've read differing opinions on glass catfish, but if I plant it heavily do you think they are an option at this temp?

I'd like some opinions on good centerpiece fish, or another colorful schooling fish.

A group of 6+ corys for the bottom, peppered corys would like that temperature, not especially colourful but an interesting addition for the bottom

My favorite lfs has peppered and pandas. I really like the peppered. Think I'll probably do 6 of those. Just gotta figure out what I want as my centerpiece. I'd like to see a rainbow cichlid in person. Can't tell if I like them or not by pictures.

According to SF guppies are fine in 63-83. So yes they're an option.....
And yes, 1 male to 3 females.

I think that's about all id want is 4 so that's good. Just want to add a bit of color to the tank. Does it matter at all if they are all different types?

No, unless you are trying to raise the fry. Also, I would just get 4 males as it's better, you don't want babies.

I got two male guppies today. I'll prob get a couple more when I find some other varieties that interest me. Would a powder blue dwarf gourami work here? Seems like most sites say 72-82 degrees. The tank hangs around 73.
