    hi all,
    I was wonder what oddball fish could be added to a 75g aquarium with multiple species of community fish ( tetras, rainbows, Cory’s, dwarf cichlids).
    Thanks, all ideas welcome

    Hatchetfish get my vote! Great fish that occupy the top level.

    Most odd balls are aggressive, so I can't think of any that would be suitable for a community tank.

    When i say oddball I mean fish that are less common or look unique / different.

    Humphead tetra .
    Glass cats , and Elephant noses come to mind also .
    Most odd balls get real big or are predators ...
    I second the hatchet and will add half beaks for another surface option .

    What is the care for silver dollars? Do they chew up plants? Will they annoy smaller tetras? and do i need a group?
    Sorry i have never kept them before.

    Maybe a little group of 3-5 Peacock Gudgeons. I've kept them with Bolivian Rams no problem. They're small but something a little different.

    What are the care requirements for the peacock gudgeons.
