well its nearly all done, my cycle, that is. so i have been bashing the internet for stocking ideas. now we dont get all the fish you lucky devils do in the u.s.(due to quarintine)but we do have some awsome australian natives!! and i have a list of the following
serpae tetra x 5
rosy barb x 6
harelquin rasbora x 6
zebra danio x 5
dwarf gourami x 2
cherry barb x 6
i have roughly 60inches of full size fish in a 67 gallon tank. this is a basic run down of what i would like. if i could it says they can shoal in 5's i would like too. which order do i add them into my new tank. i will only be putting 3 in a week does this pose a problem with the schooling fish. are there any definite no-nos here or variations you may have thought of

your words of wisdom are greatly welcomed

kind regards azzler

wow , im no fish expert but those would look so good in little schools. IT seems you did it perfectly. If i had a tank that big i would love to fill it with dwarf gauriami's and their beautiful colours. I love those fish. That would look so pretty poat pictures when your done

actually, with that setup you would be a little bit over stocked, th total of your fish is 71.5", other than that, the only thing I'd be watchful is the dwarfs, as they ca be aggressive towards each other, especially if there are 2 males

a lot of fish store will only sell te dwarfs in pairs, but yes, your schooling fish would be alright in groups of 5, so really, if you dropped one rosy barb, you lose 4 inches off your total length of fish, but you can get away with the setup you have choosen, just have to keep up with the water changes and other maintenence
