    I have a 29 gallon that is extremely over-filtered. I inherited guppies and cory cats. The cory cats are great, but the guppies are out of control. My number one plan is to control the guppies.

    I did make some new fish additions. I got 6 cherry barns, 6 glolight tetra, and 6 neons. All are beautiful and healthy.

    To manage the guppies, I got 10 ghost shrimp and 3 frogs. The shrimp are hard to find, but appear to be doing well. One frog is getting out there and eating with the cories. Another is a little skiddish, but is eating. I haven't seen the 3rd one much.

    The frogs and shrimp have seemed to chased the fry to the top of the tank.

    I have 2 German Blue Rams on order. I hope that will control my guppies.

    I will keep you all updated on my community.

    Nice! How many guppies and cories do you have? I think the GBR will do great at fry control! Do you think that 3 schools of mid dwellers is a little much for that section? Also neons prefer a cooler temp that rams so you may want to rehome the neons or you could replace them with cardinals

    Gorgeous set-up. Good luck getting rid of those guppies!

    How much of a temp difference? I'm trying to find a happy medium.

    Actually the tank looks great. The cories have the bottom and the guppies stick to the top. My only issue is my cherry barbs seem to hide.
