HI Fishlore,

First question on here. I have a 75 gallon freshwater with 3 firemouths, 3 angels and a krib. All babies. Emperor 400 HOB, the ph is 7.6. I was just looking for suggestions on what else I can keep in here safely without overstocking it (adding a second Emp 400 is an option).

Thanks!

Also would African Dwarf Frogs or ABFs work? This is probably a stupid question but hey.

Will cichlids pick on glotetras? I have a 75 set up with 3 baby FMs, 2 baby angels and a krib. If I introduced like 8 glotetras will they be all right? I want a school to give the tank some flash while the cichlids grow up.

How long have the cichlids had the tank to themselves? It's very likely that they won't give the tetras a second glance, but it's also possible they'll be seen as invaders and get killed.

FMs have had it since day before yesterday, the krib since last night. I put the angels in last night and the FMs hassled them a little and are now totally ignoring them.

They are still tussling with the krib, but I feel like that's normal.

75 gallon.

3 FMs.
2 Angels
1 krib.
8 skirt tetras.
6 cories.
Maybe gouramis? Any other ideas are appreciated.

The GouramI and Angel would kill each other, most likely. Also, I would suggest if you go with Tetra's and Angel's to get them as babies together, that will almost guarantee the Angel won't eat them further down the road.

Ok, I wasn't really serious about the gouramis, heard the FMs would kill them. What about an ABF? And the angels are babies, any tetras I would get would probably be adults though because I don't think any of my LFSs sell baby tetras.
