    ^^^Now that I think about it have to agree with KevinVA a few Golden Panchax would look amazing in there and would contrast very nicely with your Turquoise Rainbows.

    Killies and pencilfish...both types I have not kept in many years. Awesome suggestions! I will certainly look into them. I am interested in some of the Blue Gularis Triton is working on...however I have no idea if they would be top dwellers.

    I am running pressurized, DIY on any tank over about 30G is hard to keep concentrated enough to truly mess well. I only have a paintball setup going as it is much easier for me to source paintball cylinder refills locally. The best thing I can offer is whatever type of setup you opt for...misting the CO2 is the most effective means of diffusion I have ever used. Not to mention it is easy, simply get a venturi pump and hook your CO2 line to it. For even better results get a RVT pump which makes a really fine mist...I am getting better results now than when I used an in-line reactor.

    The Golden killies would look stunning with the other fish! Would they work out with the Blue Gularis?

    I'm not too sure. AFAIK both species inhabit the same zones of the tank. Which is the top and middle sections, although Golden Panchax tend to stay towards the top of the tank mostly. It all comes down to the room you have ya know? You already have quite a few fish in there. If I was going to add anymore fish I'd stick to one species. Personally I'd pick the Panchax, as I've never really liked other killifish, such as the Blue Gularis, as their colors tend to look like a child's painting, ya understand what I mean? Along with that preference I just believe Golden Panchax would look better in your tank in contrast with your other fish and your plants. Its all down to what you like though!!

    Oh and if you're wanting a purely top dwelling species I'd say go with the Golden Panchax over the Beckford's Pencilfish that I first mentioned. Unless you have quite a bit of surface cover the pencilfish will stay in the middle zone of the tank rather the the top. They're gorgeous fish but I'm sure you don't want another middle-zone schooling fish as you already have your tetras. I'd definitely check out the Golden Panchax if I were you.

    Haha, you probably don't like Guppies or Apisto Cacatuoides, then?

    I love fish with color. The Blue Gularis is a stunning fish imo. While Killis do hover up at the top for a good portion of the day, they definitely get around and utilize the entire tank. At least mine do. I have Golden Wonders, which get quite big for Killis, and they're somewhat semi-aggressive. You'll have to watch them if you have smaller fish (about ~1" or smaller), but otherwise they're fine. I haven't heard any horror stories regarding the other Killi species, though. Also, they'll eat RCS.

    Yup can't stand most guppies or A. cacatuoides. They're just not appealing to me whatsoever. I tend to really like sleek fish with solid colors, instead of shiny bodies, or fish with nice tall bodies that resemble sunfish. I currently own 1 GBR, 10 Beckford's Pencilfish, 8 Dwarf Pencilfish, 2 Apistogramma trifasciata, and 3 Otos. Other than the Otos all the other fish stick to the guidelines of what I really like in fish. It all comes down to what MCHR really likes in a fish but personally I believe the Golden Panchax would be the best choice for this tank. As KevinVA said they can be aggressive but I've seen on numerous occasions them living happily with rainbowfish and tetras that are too big to eat. I've read about the Blue Gularis also and they're semi aggressive as well and can grow pretty large, almost 5 inches, so both have risks.

    Hey Jenn,

    I tried messaging you, but your inbox is full, so I hope you don't mind my asking you this here.

    I'm researching the various methods that people use and I think I'd rather go the pump direction. So I'm probably going to buy the Rio Plus 600 Venturi pump (this one: http://www.amazon.com/Rio-Plus-Ventu...=ATVPDKIKX0DER).

    Like I said before, I'm very new to this and a little nervous about taking the first step, but I hope you can confirm what I need below:
    - rio pump to inject co2 into the tank via micro bubbles
    - CO2 line to prevent leaks
    - regular airline check valve
    - bubble counter or drop checker
    - co2 generator (canister of co2)
    - co2 regulator

    Is that everything?

    Thanks much for the help!

    If your contemplating pencilfish, go with the most colorful, Nannostomus mortenthaleri.

    That is the same pump I am using. That is all the equipment you'll need as well All I run is the regulator, check valve, pump, drop checker. No bubble counter or anything else...I havent even bothered to use CO2 tubing as it is a total PITA to work with. Silicon airline is what I am using as it is black and some folks have tested it on PT.net as having nearly 0% CO2 loss.

    Check ebay out for regulators, AquaTek makes some quality regulators at under $100. They make a standard or paintball version to fit anyone's needs.

    I had considered Endlers...but otherwise I am not a fan of guppies. I do like the idea of Killies and the Goldens would especially look nice against everything else. I dont mind if the species occasionally patrols other areas I just want a species which is primarily top dwelling. I will have to do some research on Killies. Does anyone foresee an issue with them and the Embers?

    Embers are fairly small, if we're talking about the same species, but it all depends on the temperament of the Golden Panchax if we're talking about whether or not you'll lose Embers to predation. I don't think you'll have to worry about it as ember tetras are seem just big enough and tall-bodied enough to avoid being eaten but I've never own Golden Panchax so I don't really have experience with what they can and can't put in their mouths. It doesn't hurt to try it. I've read in several places that people have kept Golden Panchax with neons and other small tetras with ease but there are those cases of them eating smaller fish. Its all up to what you want to risk.
