EDIT: Just realized the title is slightly incorrect. If a Mod sees this, could you possibly change the title to "What to replace corys with?"

Hello

In my 45G I HAD:

5 angels
2 bolvian rams
3 Garra rufa
4 albino corys

I recently moved the corys to my 15 gallon killifish tank.

Now I understand the tank would probably be classed as fully stocked even without the corys but I would like to add some more fish in their place anyway. My tank parameters are all good, 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite and with the tank being planted, the nitrates barely creep above 5 in between water changes. The tank has been set up since late december '09, so it is well established.

I'm kinda open to suggestions of fish I guess, with nothing specific in mind.

So basically, what do you think I should add which is going to take up the bio-load of 4 corys, give or take a little.

Thanks,
Ben

Oooo, both nice fish which I have never kept before Note that one down Thanks

EDIT: After some research, Kuhlis appear best suited to my tank. I particularly surprized that they 'enjoy leaf litter' according to the www.loaches.com profile, and my tank conviniently has a bit of that at the moment
So at the moment, KuhlI loaches it is
All suggestions still welcome

Oh, I'd love to help, but I have no idea when it comes to stocking. I just make sure my tanks parameters are always good with random checks, so, uh, yea!
Depends if you're talking bottom fish or mid fish... But I have NO experience with your other fish in there so I wouldn't wanna suggest something like a tetra that would soon become angel lunch lol!

So in a way, I'm helping you by not actually helping you (umm, if you get that haha)

Yup, thanks Shawnie!

I have a rather lovely honey gouramI that I will never get bored of... BUT compatability issues, no idea haha! And he's kinda small for your tank at about 1.5 inches just now.

Just for future reference Ben you can change the title by editing your post should be on the top left corner.

Kuhlis sound like a good idea though

hmmm... well, it looks like you got 2 suggestions. I vote for the loaches, too, but just for variety's sake, I'll toss a BN out there as an option.
