Okay, so right now I have one female GBR in my heavily-planted 20gL. I'm running an AquaClear 30 for filtration, a Zoo Med Aqua Sun dual bulb 48W T5HO fixture for lighting and the heater is set at about 80F. The tank is planted with cabomba, anacharis, broadleaf ludwigia, red temple plant, red ludwigia and jungle val. I might add more plants (varieties) as I find ones I like, but they will all be "feathery" and smaller-leafed, like the present plants (i.e.-no swords or anubias or anything big-leafed like that). So, now I'm thinking about how I want to stock this around my ram. I am going to try to get a male ram, but not sure if the LFS will have any (when I got my female, all they had were females). So, I'm thinking about this: 1 (possibly 2) GBRs 6-8 harlequin rasbora (LOVE these fish) RCS 1 clown pleco (maybe) I want a bottom feeder (other than the RCS), but can't find any cories around me that stay small enough. I like kuhlis, but if I got them, I would want striped kuhlis and nowhere around me carries them. I don't want to order online because it costs so danged much to ship. So, does that stocking list sound good? Can I up the number of harlies or keep them where they're at? As for my 55gal...it's kind of morphed into a temperate tank after I lost half my fish to ich. Now that the ich is gone, I'm thinking about restocking. The tank is filtered by a Cascade 1000 canister filter (rated for 100 gallons), is heavily planted with swords, jungle val, anubias, giant hairgrass, and java fern (that I need to reattach because one of my goldfish is a brat). The lighting is a 108W Current NOVA T5HO fixture running one 10K bulb and one actinic bulb. For stocking right now, I have: 2 ryukin goldfish (one adult male and one juvenile that looks like he's going to be male as well) 5 gold barbs 1 leopard danio 3 albino cories 1 kuhli loach 1 oto 1 adult male bristlenose pleco Okay, so I know my stocking is a bit...weird. I can't get more leopard danios because no one around here carries them anymore and I really don't like zebra danios. IF I can find more leopard danios, I will add them, but if not, then my solo danio is fine by himself. I know I need more cories. I had four, but one died during the ich outbreak. I know I need more kuhlis. Again, I had five or six, but they died during the ich outbreak. I have never had luck with otos in groups and mine is out and about all the time, so I'm not really worried about him. SO, other than adding another cory or two, I'm trying to figure out what else I want to add. I keep the tank at 78F, by the way, so tropicals are fine. I'm thinking I want to up my gold barb school. I really like them, but they can be little jerks, so I think upping the school might settle them down a little. I was also wanting to add a featherfin because I lost mine in the ich outbreak and I already miss him. Could I add anything else? I'm used to this tank being FULL of activity and now it just seems so...empty.
