1 male paradise fish who mainly does his own thing and controls the center of the tank from the middle up.
6 corydoras catfish, 3 bandit corydoras who will soon be rehomed to my LFS and 3 peppered corydoras who spawned and their fry are currently being raised in the net breeder box you see in the top. (roughly six fry, only about 4 will probably make it to adulthood)
6 danio rerio, who school and swim about in the open areas and weave through the stem plants (before being chased away by the paradise fish)
-currently I have a female rosy barb who is remarkably peaceful who I have while she is healing from being that smallest in the cichlid tank. once she heals up and isn't harassed, she'll be put back in the 60 gallon.-
Here is what I want to get for the tank to finish out the stocking for the tank;
1 (maybe gold/albino) bristlenose plecostomus to eat the algae that is ever present on the glass, which would make cleaning easier, I hope.
5 otocinclus to act as smaller algae eaters.
tons of ghost shrimp who would probably make it in the stem plants and tall foliage I'll have soon, who might breed a little bit. I don't mind if they don't make it or if they get eaten. (would be worth a try)
Is there any other fish you guys think I would be able to put in here? I'm comfortable with a little bit of over stocking, up to about 130% on aqadvisor would be okay.
Also my filter is rated for a 40 gallon and is the whisper 40i, and I've read online that it rated about 170-200 gallons per hour.
