    So my 55-gallon tank checks out. Nitrates, check. Ammonia, no check. Nitrites, no check. Ready to go! :;banaman

    My planned stocking is a school of harlequin rasboras, maybe a school of gold barbs (not sure yet), a couple angelfish, a school of peppered cories, and miscellaneous nerite and mystery snails.

    I'm definitely starting with a few snails, but as far as fish go... which should I add first? Which species can deal most easily with a freshly-cycled tank?

    Thanks! ;D

    Well done on finishing cycling, the tank looks lovely.
    I'd add the rasboras first, then the barbs, corys & angelfish.
    On the subject of the corys you should rethink the species as peppers require a lot cooler temperature than the rest of your fish. you could go for bronze, albino, sterbai instead.
