    I thought I had a plan but somehow got off track. I need help stocking my tank!!

    I wanted an Angelfish as my centerpiece. However started with a 1 Dalmation and 1 Silver Molly and now....FRY!!! The Molly's are being rehomed somehow someway.

    If you had my tank and it was empty and cycled, what would you stock it with?

    An angel, some tetras, some bottom dwellers like cory or loaches.

    Cories are schooling fish and prefer groups of 6+. Otocinclus also prefer larger groups. If those are all the fish you want you could do:

    1 angel
    8 Otocinclus
    8 cories
    12 harlequin rasbora

    I like the above list, you could also add some Khuli loaches to it, there alot of fun and get along with everyone.

    I might also think that if you wanted to you could cut down the harleys a bit and do another school of smaller fish like black neons or something.
