I have a 56 gallon column tank right now there r 2 angels, 6 pepper corys, 3 dalmatian mollies, 1 bn pleco, 1 Bolivian ram, and 4 harelquin rasbora. I have 2 apistogramma **** double reds on the way. I'm wondering what other fish would work in this tank?

Cardinal tetras are a good looking schooling fish that are friendly maybe them? Also i read that apistos will come out more if there is a bunch of peaceful fish because then the apistos will think it's more safe and come out so that's just like an added bonus.

btw I know this is ur thread but do you have any tips on apistogramma for how to keep them.

I know neons are but I used to have cardinals in my old 55 g and as soon as I added an angel they started dissapearing. Just talking from personal experience .

Roseline sharks need a 48" long tank minimum. Not sure on dimensions of your column tank.

Angels need 78-84f
Peppered cories need 63-72f
Mollies need 71-78f
Bristlenoses need 68-77f
Bolivian rams need 71-77f
Harlequins need 75-82f
From what I've read all the temps r fine
Angelfish-76-82
Rasbora-72-77
Cory-72-78
Molly-68-82
Ram-72-79
Pleco-74-79
My tank is 30 inches long 18 deep and 25 high
What would u recommend beside the Roseline?

Lots of misinformation on the peppered cory has been spread around online for a while now. They may be active, but this can indicate an increased metabolism, which will shorten their lifespan.

They're from southern South America, which is much cooler than the northern part, which is where most aquarium fish from SA are.

Any tank mate suggestions for me?

Is that information specific to peppered cories? Different cories have different temperature requirements.
From what I've read it's about 80% 72-79 a few say 60-75
