So glad to be here, I have read this forum for months and been soaking in the info. OK, so I am FINALLY taking the plunge into the freshwater world. Getting a 46 gallon Bowfront aquarium. Seems like a good size for my living room corner. Anyway, I am sure I will have MANY more questions in the near future. For now though, I am researching and wondering what community of fish I should go with. Right now I am thinking this: 6 Tiger Barbs 6 Tetras of choice 4 Bosemani Rainbows 8 Endlers Livebearers 6 Harlequin Rasboras OR 6 Cherry Barbs (haven't decided) 1 Dwarf Gourami 1 smaller Pleco So is this a good mix??? Trying to keep the "school" idea in mind as well. I am getting a filter for a 70-75 tank for extra filtration. I think going by max size I do have about 60" of fish here.... Think this will work?? Is this a good mix??? Will they get along?? I know the Barbers are probably the only concern but heard if i keep them at 6 minimum and add them last it should work. Any advice and/or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! GLAD TO BE HERE AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE ON THIS FORUM!!!!!
