It is a 40g breeder with 2 aquaclear 70s and 2 sponge filters rated for 50 gallons each. I just added some plants last week waiting for them to grow out fill the tank more. I currently have:

11 false julii Cory
1 female pearl gourami
12 neon tetra

I am going to add 8 more neon tetras, and contemplating adding cherry barbs. How many should I add? And I’m assuming I will be fully stocked after adding cherry barbs. What do you think?

Yeah I think that quantity of fish would be fine. My concern though is that pearl gouramis need 78f+ while neons shouldn't be kept over 75f.

I have another 40 gallon breeder I’m going to start cycling soon and move the pearl gourami over into once cycled and drop the temperature down to around 74F for the neons, cherry, and cories but how I need another “show” fish or a pair of fish to be like centerpiece fishes, any recommendations with that?
