Hi all,
I have got myself a 75g aquarium cycling. it will end up being heavily planted and i was wondering if this stock would work?
- 4 boesmani rainbows
- 4 praecox rainbows
- 3 torquoise rainbows
- 1 keyhole cichlid
- 6 black phantom tetras
- 1 bristlenose
- 7 bronze corydoras
Do i still have room? (also if i still have room what odd fish could i add)
thanks, all help needed

For a finalized stocking depending on filtration and the amount of work you want to put in; that sounds reasonable. That said I personally don’t like small groups of tetras. When I stock tetras I won’t do less than 10.

I agree, I would up all the schools of fish to at least 6. And then you should be pretty goid!

Odd balls are normally aggressive, so I can't think of any community ones.

I’d just roll with the stocking you have once it’s all established; if your parameters are good I’d add to the phantoms and corys. It may seem boring but I’d rather have a few species in large numbers rather than a small number of a bunch of species.

Would there still be room for the extra tetras and cory's to be added

For that oddball fish you could add a colorful or interesting pleco you mentioned you wanted a catfish like a zebra pleco I saw an interesting species called the queen pleco that only gets 5 inches
