    Well here is my most recent idea for my 55g;
    2 Upside Down Catfish
    9 Kuhli Loaches
    5 Honey Gourami's
    1 Clown Pleco
    --->Tricky Part Now<---
    8 Celebes Rainbowfish
    or
    10 Threadfins Rainbowfish
    or
    8 Blue Eyed Rainbowfish
    or
    8 Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish

    The rainbow fish are in order of if I can get them thats what I would pick 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th

    Yes, this tank has drift wood and some hiding spots in the rocks a piece of drift wood.
    Currently has live plants in groups in a couple spots of the tank. Im going to add more most likely fake due to low lighting in the tank making choices very limited with my lfs's.

    thanks Blover99, Im getting much more creative ideas as time goes on.
    I was going to do the 1 honey gourami I have and 4 rams.
    I was thinking my poor honey is getting dark and they like to be accompanied so maybe more of his kind will help. Then Rams are hard to get here more than 1 at a time and they are very hard to please with water conditions and such.

    Have you considered angel fish? Sorry if this is irrellivent or if I am confused maybe some of those fish would fight with an angel not sure . However I think angels would be happy in that tank

    Angels were thought about several times but there matures size isn't something I want.
    If I ever get like a 40g tall tank for a corner or such I think i'd do a pair though!

    your tank sounds beautiful :) good luck with it and post some pictures please :D
    the catfish might be happier with a few more of their own kind too. theyll be fine as a duo but you might see them more if you have 4 or more.
    yay rainbow fish :) they're so pretty. mts speaking "when i get a community tank, im putting rainbowfish and angels in it, Big tank :D"

    My friends mom bought me one while I was on vacation a couple years back. I bought a second one for company a couple months later.

    lol. gotta love it when they buy you something you don't like. i'd take em but i don't think my featherfin would appreciate more catfish in the tank. he already has to deal with cichlids barging into his hiding hole all the time and the cae lol

    I was living with them at the time so I couldn't return it without hurting feelings.
