    Hello all. I have one last (hopefully) stocking question...
    what would y'all think about in a 55 gallon with standard dimensions stocking-
    2 pearl gourami
    3 Bolivian rams
    20 cardinal tetras
    5 amano shrimp
    Aiming for Parameters of 74-76 degrees, pH 6.5
    For the gourami and rams I'm going to try to get the same sex for each species because I do not want them to breed.
    Thanks!

    That temperature is great for the bolivians but the pearl gouramis would like warmer water (78-80f)

    Should I switch to german blues instead of Bolivians?

    Yeah you could swap the bolivians for GBR or you could swap the pearls for honeys

    Agree, the pearl gourami and bolivian ram are not temperature compatible.

    Thanks. I had used aqadvisor and it didn't give me any warnings and I'm pretty new to this so I wasn't sure.

    Don't use Aqadvisor. It is inaccurate. Post here if you have any questions instead.
