What can I stock in a 40 gallon Hex tank? Cichlids are low on my list, I'm trying to think of something like a peaceful community. Maybe, South American or Asia. Definitely want warmer water. I want to follow the quarters rule. EX.
I Really want my kuhli again. my LFS still has them. Can I bring them home when I cycle the tank?

For the most part your fish stock looks good. You might have problems with the barbs nipping on the gourami, so just watch. I would limit the number of gourami in the tank also since they can be rather territorial. You might be better off going with honey gourami. I would also do at least shoals and schools of 6 for every fish other than the gourami.

So, I was actually lied to. the buy said it was a 40 gallon hex, its in the shape of a pentagon. it looks like these.
