    Hey guys i currently have a tank with 2 BN plecos and 7 zebra danios, would love to get another fish but would prefer a fish i can keep as one or as a pair. Any suggestions? not anything that gets to big or is to aggressive towards my danios, and is quite hardy as im still learning, also not a fish that is to outrageously expensive since im a poor student. Cheers :D

    Hmmm yeah could Always get some tetras what about corys?

    You could do a dwarf gourami or maybe a honey gourami in there I think. I also think bn plecos can become territorial as they age, I'm not sure that 20g is large enough to house two of them without issues. I could very well be mistaken on this though. Mollies and swordtails will get too big imo. Cories could work maybe...I don't know if they would be a problem with the 2 plecos or not.

    Yeah this tank is only temporary one of my plecos is abit of a bully already definitely eats more because he doesn't let his little brother near the food. I plan to upgrade once they get bigger they ate still small around the size of my biggest danio

    Ah that's good to know :) do you put fresh veggies in for them? You might try putting a piece on opposite sides of the tank so each of them has their own little eating area.

    Oh yeah good idea I didn't even think of that I just though the bigger one would just steal both lol

    If you are considering cories, you will need ones that prefer cooler temperatures. Zebra danios like it a bit cooler, 64-75 degrees.

    What are the dimensions of the tank?
  13. Dom90Fishlore VIPMember

    OP mentioned it was a 80 liter tank.

    That's not the dimensions...... dimensions is how many inches long, wide, and high.
  15. plecziahValued MemberMember

    Oh yep what breed would you suggest?
  16. Anders247Fishlore LegendMember

    Peppered and panda cories are cooler water cories, as are trilineatus.

    If you wanted something a bit more unique, try a couple peacock gudgeons.

    Gremen blue Rams

    No, they need higher temp than zebra danios.
