Fluval flex 15 gallon stocking ideas?

jkkgron2

I got this tank from my LFS when it was on sale but I don’t really know what I want in it. The tank will be planted with some low-light plants. My water is hard so some nano fish might not do well. It’d be fun to breed kribs but I’m still trying to figure out where to get a proven pair since my LFS only sells juveniles. My other idea is a betta tank with Pygmy corys and ember tetras. Do either of these ideas sound good? Also if anyone has any suggestions for other stocking ideas please tell me!

the betta ember one sounds pretty cool, how about a blackwater setup?

I like the betta idea but i read that ember tetras like soft water? Im not sure if this is true but if it is maybe go with a differnt tetra or rasbora? I also like all the other ideas people have suggested.

Thanks everyone, those suggestions all sound great!

From what I’ve heard ember tetras do ok in hard water as long as they’re not wild caught. If they don’t do well a different type of rasbora or tetra would be fine too if I went with that idea.

The gobies look amazing so if I can find them locally for a good price I might go with them. I haven’t seen them at my favorite LFS before, but there’s some other places I can look.

So far though I think I’m leaning towards doing a betta community tank so what tankmates should I look into? I’ve had a betta community tank before, but never in this tank size so not sure what’ll work.

Edit: There’s one other fish I want but forgot to mention, pea puffers! How many could I have in that tank? Would they be ok if I fed them snails 2x a week and bloodworms and pellets the other days?

Ok so I’m going to get something from an auction that’s coming up in a fish group I’m in, get a betta and small schooling fish, or get an axolotl. I’d love to get the axolotl but not sure how one would do. Does anyone have any experience keeping them in a 15 gallon tank? Will one have enough space, or should I wait until I can give it a bigger home?
