Good morning fish friends,

I recently moved and at the same time upgraded to a 75 tall custom. My stock is as follows

3x Peppered Cory(baby)
2x Bronze Cory
2x Albino Cory
1x BN Pleco
1x Rubberlipp Pleco (baby)
7x Cardinals
7x Mixed danio
3x Chain Loaches
3x Angels (baby)
and my pride and joy
2x Nigerian Red Kribs

Now however my tank looks empty. according to aquadvisor I'm only at 60% stock, what could I add to this tank that would make it look a little more... well more.

ph 7.5 am 0, n2-0 n3 -10ppm

It looks like your tank is stocked with an abundance of bottom dwelling fish & lacking in mid to upper level swimmers with any substantial size. Maybe stock a good sized school of larger Tetras such as the Bleeding Heart or Columbian Tetra
or a school of less aggressive barbs like the Odessa & Denison Barb.

I was thinking about adding some black neons or green neons since my cardinals do get the most complements, but I have always wanted to try Barbs too would they do okay with my current stock?

I do love my bottom dwellers

You have some stocking issues, compatibility-wise. Danios and the peppered cories need cooler temperatures than angels and cardinal tetras. I would rehome some of the mixed groups and focus on one species of cory that is compatible.
