    After months of research i've finally decided on the stocking

    For a 37 gallon tank, it will be:

    1xBlue Gourami
    1xApistogramma Cacatuoides
    1xRio Negro Dwarf Cichlid
    1xBristlenose Pleco
    1x Red Breasted Dwarf Cichlid
    1x German Blue Ram
    1x Kribensis

    Do you think this stock is fine as it is? The aquarium will be heavily planted and with a lot of hiding places

    I would get at least one schooling or grouping species, like corydoras, tetras, rasboras, or guppies. But it sounds good! Try running your plan through aqadvisor, a helpful tool for checking tank conditions.

    Hehe thanks! I always try aqadvisor when i think of a tank, but thanks anyway :)

    Idk do you really think it's necessary to have a school? In my experience, schools don't really work for me ,_, i can't keep track of each individual fish wellbeing and since i'm keeping long finned species i'm scared a school might nip on their fins. Anyway! If i eventually decide to have a school, i guess i'm going with Rummynoses! Aqadvisor says it's 90% stocked with the fish + 12 rummyes, what do y'all think?
