    Hello there!
    Are you interested in Fry?
    Because the fish you chose are livebearers which means They breed a lot

    Hi, that would be a bit overstocked. I would skip the mollies and swordtails or the guppies and platies. I would also remove the harlequins and up the pandas to 15.

    Did you cycle the tank? Will it be planted? Do you have an ideal temp/pre-programmed heater? Do you have any ideas as to what type of cichlids (South American, African, etc.)?
  7. Kenny777Well Known MemberMember

    Firemouths, convicts, malawi cichlids, South American cichlids, or central American cichlids is the only thing I can think of.

    Do you want just a couple of cichlids in a community tank or a full on cichlid tank with mbunas or something?

    Here are a couple of ideas for a few cichlids in a community tank
    1 Angelfish
    2 german blue ram cichlids
    10-15 cherry barbs or cardinal tetras or harlequin rasboras
    15 kuhli loaches
    1 clown pleco

    1 Umbrella cichlid
    2 bolivian ram cichlids
    10-15 zebra danios or neon tetras or skirt tetras
    15 panda cories
    1 bristlenose pleco

    Yes to what part(s)?
  14. Anders247Fishlore LegendMember

    I agree with BD.

    I'd suggest a Victorian cichlid tank, with either Haplochromis sauvagei or Haplochromis phytophagus and some dither fish like Australian rainbows or giant danios.

    Did you cycle the tank? Whether or not you can even keep anything with that Betta depends on its personality.

    That's pretty broad. There are a number of them. Do you like cichlids, livebearers, schooling fish, bottom dwellers, etc? Is the tank cycled or are you planning the stock in advance?
