    Why not do a fishless cycle?

    I dont know how compatible those gouramis are with the apistos and rams. I would take away the two gouramis and do 6 corys. They do better in groups of 6.

    fish in cycle takes a lot longer and you have to do daily water changes every day. not to mention its still stressful on the fish. if you really have to have them in try tetra safe start. but i have always done a fishless cycle myself.

    i would deff not do 2 gouramis, they prob will fight in a tank that small. what are the exact measurements of the tank? that could make a big difference.

    im not sure rams and apistos will get along.

    corys need at least 6 but 10 being much better. same with the neons and rummys, they can be very timid and one big school would make them feel much better. id only get one kind but its up to you.

    You can try both gourami if u want but there is a chance they will fight. Just watch out for aggression and be ready to return one. Honey gouramis would work much better, there more peaceful.

    Your tank is far too small to house ALL of these fish. Far, far too small... and I'm surprised no one has mentioned it.

    Deff not all of them. The top list is OK but I would only pick one school either rummy or neon. I would only do the apisto or the ram and only one gourami. And up the corys.

    I agee for the most part. The top list is okay but could be tweaked a bit. You may have trouble with both cichlids, you may not. There's really only one way to find out. I also agree on one gourami, though I would not recommend keeping one pearl. They are group oriented fish.

    O I thought pearls could be by themselves sorry. If u want more gourami u can do honey gouramis.

    They CAN be. But, they like the company of their own kind.
