So my friend has a 180 gallon aquarium and he is looking to make it a planted community tank. He wants Black Neon Tetras for sure and is just wondering your guy's stocking suggestions. Please include a number count for each of the fish that you suggest.

Here is what I suggest:
- 3 angle fish (centerpiece fish)
- 3 blue gourami (Centerpice fish)
- 12 black neon tetras (Schooling/background fish)
- 12 serpae tetras (schooling/Background fish)
- 1 peacock eel (unique fish (need a tight lid))
- 12 cory catfish (algae eaters)
- 1 bristle nose pleco (algae eater)
- 1 albino bristle nose pleco (algae eater)
- 1 lace (synodontis) catfish (unique fish)
- 8 danios (top water fish)
- 10 guppies (they will likely breed) (top water fish)
- 6 mollys/platys (mid water fish)

I am not well versed in plants so I wont make suggestions for those. With this stocking I recommend 25-50% water changes a week.
