Hi all, I'm new here. :;hi1 I'm fishless cycling my tank right now, waiting for those nitrites to go down. In the meantime I'm trying to decide what to put in my tank. It's a 75 gallon, lightly planted with Java ferns, Anubias and Wisteria. My pH is 8, maybe slightly lower and I just added a chunk of driftwood. I don't have a hardness test except kh and that was 7 drops. So far the only for sure fish going in the tank is a large common pleco, he's 6 years old and about 13 inches long, I'm rescuing him from my Mom's 29 gallon. Does anyone have any suggestions for what would work well in my tank with the pH and all? From what I've read having a higher pH isn't so bad as long as you slowly acclimate and your pH is stable. I've considered cories, platies and danios or tetras of some sort. Ideally I'd like a few bigger colorful fish but no bigger than 4-5 inches long, plus a school of 8+ smaller fish for the middle to top. And I really like cories for the bottom but I'm not sure if my water would be okay or if competing with the pleco for food would be an issue. I also really like Angelfish but I think with my pH it could be a stretch...And platies aren't really turning me on too much because I don't want to have to deal with fry but I don't really want to watch them get eaten either haha.
