I have a 44 gallon bowfront that I was using to breed guppies I now have it cleared and rescaped with more plants coming tomorrow it is over filtered.
What recommendations for stocking starting fresh?
Well, is there anything specific you absolutely must have? It helps to find that, then build a list around that fish
What filtration do you have running?
If you like bottom feeders, then I would definitely recommend crayfish. I have 3 small orange ones in my 36 bow front and they are very entertaining. It's very fun to watch them scuttle around and climb in the tank. If you want something that will live longer, I would suggest electric blue crayfish, since they can live about 5 years with proper care and get about 5-6 in long. As for fish, perhaps some emperor or flame tetra's could be nice, or a few honey gourami's if you want something larger. None of these are aggressive, and with my experience crayfish usually run away from other fish rather than try to nip them. Hope this helps! !
