    ok so, i know im kind of annoying with changing my stock sooo much but i swear this is the last time, and if it wont work ill go back to the original. so will it work?
    15-cherry barbs
    5-syno petricolas(might be 3)
    2-gold rams(i believe both male)
    2-apistos(pair)
    1-angelfish
    would this be ok? or too much?

    I think it would look really cool, but the angelfish might grow big enough to eat the barbs someday. I might also add some sort of cleaner shrimp, because they don't really add to the bioload and they would look really cool with all the plants.

    im going to get a small angel so it can grow up with them, and ill probably get some bamboo shrimp and amano shrimp later on.

    I'd do -

    10 Cherries
    3 Catfish
    1 Angel
    1 Pair of Germans
    1 Pair of Apisto


    Oh, and yes I am a member of Aquaria Central, I just don't get on much.

    Personally, I would do 10, but I guess you could try 15..

    I'm not an expert on filtration, but I think you might be able to get away with 15 unless there are big issues with your filter(s). I think bamboo shrimp would look really cool-I'm considering getting some for my tank in a few months.
