    Alright, I made a post about this awhile ago, but now that I know what my filtration will be, I feel like I can more confidently ask if I can add these fish.
    I have an Aqueon 40 (or whatever, it's the one that's like extra quiet) and I'm going to cut out a hole in my hood and add a second filter, fluval 50. This will bring my total GPH up to 400.
    That being said, current stock is:
    3 mystery snails
    1 nerite snail
    6 Julii Cory catfish
    1 Asian bumblebee catfish
    4 platies
    2 pearl gouramis
    1 female betta(completely non-aggressive)
    I want to add:
    8 harlequin rasboras
    10 Amano shrimp
    1 bamboo shrimp
    And either two more Julii cories or 6 ottos. Unless I can have both.
    Thoughts? The harlequins are what I really want, but if I can add some more cories on top of that it would be nice.

    EDIT: I should add that this tank is heavily planted and now getting fertilizer and will soon be getting a lighting upgrade so it's about to go NUTS. This might limit swimming room, so less active fish are better. I don't know if the harlequins are active or not.

    I'm going to bump again because seriously, I think this is okay but I know nothing about the rasboras so I'm unsure if that many will be fine. Is the bio load high?

    I would say the bioload is fine. What are the dimensions of the tank?

    It's a standard 38. I think 36"x18"x20"

    this tank is slowly becoming more and more epic. filtration upgrades within a few days, new aquascaping and lighting upgrades in two weeks! and i'll be getting the harlequins shortly after! oh man, this thing is seriously awesome. i mean, its a huge money investment at this point, but totally worth it. new lighting and filtration will put me at around $500 so far. depending on how many plants, and the price of the harlequins, that might get me up to $600 :0
