Hi there I've made a thread some time ago about some suggestions for my new tank. Here in my new thread, I would like to hear people's opinion about the different fish setup I have been thinking about and all advice and suggestions is welcome.. Most of the stuff I have (roots, plants, etc) is based on Orinoco, but alot of it would fit perfectly into nearby biotops (it would be 100% but looking towards it) I might add that I am new to South American's and even tanks with plants. I've been planning this so far Setup 1 - Orinoco biotop. Cleithracara maronii 1 or 2 pairs mesonauta festivus - 1 or 2 pairs "Corydoras" not sure what yet - 2-4 Rummynose Tetra - 10 Setup 2 I've been thinking about the I really like it alot, the problem is, I really want to be sure the tank is large enough, in local pet stores and half the sites online, they say its fine with a pair in lower than 50 gallon, but well it gets large, so is 50 gallons not to small for a pair of these? would love any advice here, I've only had malawi's and fish that size would never be ok. (I had a bigger tank back then) So would love any suggestions about "biotopish" tank mates that could go with them in a 50 gallon, or simple an answer that its a no go (as I lean towards myself) Setup 3 Cleithracara maronii - 2 pairs Rummynose Tetra - 10 "Corydoras" not sure what yet - 2-4 (a fish that goes in the top like a hatchetfish) Setup 4 Laetacara fulvipinnis - 4 Cleithracara maronii - 2 pairs Rummynose Tetra - 10 "Corydoras" not sure what yet - 2-4 --------- I've not yet fully decided on the corydoras, because I am still uncertain what the pet stores I buy from can offer, they can offer the other fish I suggested.. as it is not I am almost certain it will be setup 1, but I really like the pulcher. I've seen so many post great advice and exprience in here, so might as well hear you all out instead of sticking with the safe pick. you can always be suprised.
