Possible 20/25 Gallon, Is This Stock Good For All My Tanks?

Lance0414

I plan on getting a 20(24" x 12" x 16") or 25 gallon(24" x 12" x 19") and a 5 Gallon(20" x 7" x 12") and I hope to fix most of my errors in other tanks, would these stocks work for all of my tanks and if not what would? Anders247 , Katie13 , What do you think?
5 Gallon(divided)-
2 Bettas(1 on each side)(Have Both)
Temp.-78'F

10 Gallon-
10 Norman Lampeyes(Have 6)
2 Sparkling/Croaking Gouramis(Have Both)
Temp.-78'F

20/25 Gallon-
2 Bolivian Rams(Have Both)
1 BN Pleco(Have)
8-12 Danios(Zebra, Leopard, Glo Mix)(Friend is willing to give me the 4 Danios I gave him back)
1 Dwarf Gourami
Temp.-74'F

36 Gallon-
1 EBA(Have)
1 Angelfish(Have)
2 GBRs(Have 1)
8 Bronze Cories(Have 6)
1 Clown Pleco(Have)
Temp.-78'F

Everything is fine except the 10 gallon, I'm pretty sure that the gouramis have to be in a larger tank, but someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The Gouramis get 1 1/2 inchs at maturity and are shy, so they are well suited to the 10 Gallon. They are also known as Pygmy Gouramis(Trichogastor Pumila).

The biggest issue I see is with the danios. They do best in schools of their own species, or with glofish, actual type not coloration/modification.

Zebra, Leopard, and Glo Danios are all Danio Rerio just bred(or genetically modified) to look different.

I knew Glo Danios where, but I didn't know Leopards are as well! I think I would keep the Lampeyes at 6 as they get around 1.5" as they get slightly larger than others like CPDs or Chilis.
 

Lance0414

Ok, I will keep the Lampeyes at 6, does the rest of the stocks look good to you?

What are the dimensions of the 20/25? I think I would do Honeys instead of a DG.
 

Lance0414

20 Gallon- 24" x 12" x 16" , 25 Gallon- 24" x 12" x 19" , I thought Honeys would be better as they are more peaceful but I like the way Dwarfs look better.

With those dimensions, I believe I would keep the Danios at 8.
 

Lance0414

Ok, how about if I did-
2 Bolivian Rams
1 BN Pleco
10 Danios(4 Zebra, 4 Leopard, 2 Glo)
1 Thicklip Gourami(I think they are Dwarf size but peaceful, correct?)

I've heard instances of not so peaceful thick lips.
 

Lance0414

What centerpiece would you recommend? Less than 3 inchs, peaceful, temp. compatible, and colorful is what I want.

What about a Fire Red Honey? They are gorgeous!
 

Lance0414

I like those, but don't Honeys like to be in groups?

People have kept single I believe. You could also do 8 Danios and 2 Honeys. I was never a big fan of Honey Gouramis until I saw Fire Reds.

I would be careful with feeding those because they aren't very competitive eaters, danios are. I have zebra danios in my tank and they are very aggressive eaters.
 

Wobbegong

You just have to give a little bit of extra care and make sure they get some food too, it might also help to use different types of food like algae wafers. I have a dwarf gourami in my 30 gallon with my danios, I usually make sure he gets some flakes.
 

Lance0414

I use Flakes and Granules for my top and mid dwellers and Algae Wafers and Fresh Cucumber for the Plecos.
Would this stock work-
9 Danios(4 Zebra, 3 Leopard, 1 Glo)
1 Dwarf Gourami(Powdered Blue)
2 Bolivian Rams
1 Bn Pleco
Maybe a few Otos as they have little Bio-Load.

Otos are schooling fish.
 

Anders247

A 24 inch tank is too small for a BN pleco, imo, otherwise the stockings are OK.
 

Lance0414

Would the BN be fine in the 36 Gallon if I lower the Temp. to 76-77'F? If the BN stays in the 36 Gallon would 8 Otos fit in the 20/25?
 

Lance0414

Would this stock work for the 20/25-
2 Bolivian Rams
1 AgassizI or Cockatoo Cichlid
8-10 Danios(Zebra, Leopard, Glo Mix)
8-12 Otos or 1 BN Pleco
Temp.-74'F

The BN needs 76f or below but the GBR won't be happy below 78f
 

Lance0414

So put the BN in the 20/25 Gallon, the tank will be overfiltered(About 150 GPH).
 

Lance0414

I have had some delays and the tank will have to wait another 2 months.
 

Lance0414

I am getting the 25 Gallon for sure and I was wondering if these stocks would work?
2.5 Gallon(12"x 5"x 6")70-72'F-
Neocaridina DavidI Setup
5 Gallon(18"x 6"x 12")77'F-
Betta
10 Gallon(20"x 10"x 12")78'F-
6-8 Norman Lampeye Killifish
2 Sparkling Gouramis
Pond+MTS Snails
25 Gallon(24"x 12"x 17-19")75'F-
10 Danios(Leopard, Zebra, Glo Mix)
2-3 Bolivian Rams(2-3 Males)
1 Stiphodon Goby(Atropurpureus or Percnopterygionus) or 6 Bronze Cories(Albino, Regular Mix)
1 BN Pleco
2 Rabbit Snails
36 Gallon(30"x 10"x 20")78'F-
1 EBA
1 Angelfish
2-3 GBRs(1 Male 1-2 Females)
2 Clown Plecos(Male/Female)
1 South American Bumblebee Catfish(?)
3 Nerite Snails

The last thing you want is an odd number of Rams unless in a large group.
 

Wobbegong

What about 1 ram
 

Lance0414

I have 2 Male Rams already so I will stick with them. Is there anything else you think I would have a problem with?
 

Lance0414

I now have the 25(which turns out is only a 24) and it will be another month before it gets decorated, so right now I have a problem, 1 of my small Cories has died and the other got injured from the Angelfish so I would like to put the Cories in the 24 instead of a Goby(But if I have room for a Goby I would like to get one). Would this stock work-
8-10 Danios(3-4 Zebra, 3-4 Leopard, 2 Glo)(Friend is giving me my original 3 Zebras back)
6-8 Bronze Cories(Have 5)
1 BN Pleco(Have)
2,4 Bolivian Rams(I want my Males to have a mate)(2 Males, 2 Females)(Have 2 Males)
2 Nerite Snails(Angelfish killed my Zebra Nerite so the Tiger is helping cycle the 24)
