    Hi All,

    After some suggestions for a 45g / 180l planted community tank. Was trying to keep low stocked/low bio load but so much good stuff to chose from.

    Thoughts so far are;

    6 Panda or peppered Cory
    2-4 Golden Honey Gourami
    School of Cardinals ~12
    School of Harlequin or Lambchop Rasbora~8-10
    Gold Or Bolivian Rams ( can’t decide if at all, really like the but trying to stay low maintenance/hardier fish)

    Other thoughts
    Lemon tetra
    Columbian tetra
    Candy cane tetra
    Diamond tetra

    Let me know your thoughts or suggestions on choices and quantities.

    I personally would do bolivians, golden rams prefer temps greater than panda/peppered cories...

    Other than that, i would bump up the cory school to around 8 and call it done.

    Slight change of plans at the moment, now leaning towards

    ~6 Panda Cory
    ~12 Black Neon Tetra
    ~8-10 Lambchop/Harlequin Rasbora
    ~6-8 Bleeding Heart Tetra or Candy Cane Tetra (False Rosy Tetra?) Hyphessobrycon bentosi or Rosy tetra Hyphessobrycon rosaceus

    Then maybe the Bolivian Rams - would pair or multiple females and 1 male be better?
    Could I increase numbers of any of the above?
