i want (being albino cories, cardinal tetras, congo tetras, pearl gouramis and a bristlenose pleco.) im planing of using the eheim professional 4+ 350 as my filter. Not sure how many of each, but thinking some combination of between 10-16 cadinals, 6-8 congos, 8-10 cories, 1-3 pearls, and 1 pleco.

I would probably stay closer to the lower end of the tetra numbers , like 10-12 instead of 16, but looks pretty do-able to me.

That seems like a lot to me. I'd suggest skipping the congos.

Fair enough. Could i skip the pearl gourami instead, and just keep my numbers low? The congos are probably my favorite fish on the list, and the gourami is my least favorite.

That’s what I was going to suggest. Congo’s are large and in my opinion too boisterous to keep with Pearls, at least in a smaller tank.

Alright. Do you think 1 pleco, 10 cories, 8 congos, and 12 cardinals would work?

That is a bit much as the Congo’s have a bigger bioload than most tetras
I’d do 1 pleco 8 cories 8 Congo’s and if you really want cardinals 8 cardinals
