New fish suggestions ......

Postby PeterMcgee » Sat Feb 18, 2012 11:01 pm

I currently have 2 opaline and 2 golden gourami about 4cm, 5 rosy barbs 2cm and a snowball plec 3cm

I have a 200lt tank approx 38 x 18 x 16

i was thinking what other fish could i add to my tank to create a nice community aquarium though i think the max i would add is no more than 4

my thoughts
2 clown loach, the pet shop has some about 1inch but i know they grow quite big, or some other bottom dwelling fish
1 or 2 rainbow fish to add some nice colour

any ideas ?? or is my stock large enough for my tank ?

Clown loaches prefer to be in groups of 3 or more. I would increase your rosy barb numbers so the existing gourami are your feature fish.

i have rainbow fish ( lake katubu )...they a gorgeous colour and have no problems with my gourami's...a very peaceful fish that adds a great splash of colour to the tank. :)
