What fish do you have and how big is your hex tank?skar said:You have allot of options.
I have a hexagon tank with allot of different fish that really do well.
I agree to go planted and a community aquarium I think it will look great.

A breeding pair of blue rams may not do so well in a community tank, as Gena probably knows as much..nicole4434 said:Well if you can't do angels because of the measurements, what about a dwarf cichlid, like a breeding pair of blue rams, they are fine as community fish and I had them with guppies before, I have them in a 75 gallon now and they do fine with my angel fish, gold barbs, cherry barbs and harlequin rasboras
Yes, it's a filter! I had no idea that they weren't to useful. I did more research and thank you so much for pointing that out! I can't believe fish can get caught and die... Would have never thought. Thank you so much for the advice. I definitely won't get any fish over 2-3".LiterallyHydro said:Unrelated, but is that an undergravel filter you're planning on running in there? I'd use anything but one of those things. They really become a detritus trap underneath that plate. You can pick up a decent canister filter online for $50-100 for a tank that size.
And yeah, I would stick with fish that are less than 3" max. Schooling fish a max of 2" I would say. The unfortunate thing about hex tanks is that even though that there is 60 gallons, you don't have nearly as many options as say a 55 or 75 gallon rectangular aquarium.
It depends on what type of gouramI you get, I have 1 male Blue Ram and 3 female Blue Rams with 1 Male neon Blue Gourami, 1 male honey gouramI and 2 female honey gourami's and they get on good they don't bother the Angel Fish or any of the schooling fish but I have a 75 gallon tank and there is plenty of Plants and Sight Blockers.mearatiara said:Do blue rams get along with gouramis? I'm going to start cycling water, so I have enough time to pick of course!
