    I'm looking at adding a school of harlequin rasboras to my 20 gallon high tank. Right now it is stocked with 2 Bolivian Rams and 8 cherry barbs. I'd like some more fish in the top third of the tank and to have some that somewhat school together sometimes like the rasboras do because the cherry barbs roam about by themselves usually in the middle to bottom third of the tank.

    Do you I have room to add 8-10 harlequin rasboras?

    Depends on your filtration and maintenance routine...

    Have an aqua clear 50 filter and I do weekly water changes of usually 30-50% depending on nitrate levels. I usually just do 50% to be safe.

    So you think it can be done? It seems ok to me but I don't have a lot of experience with stocking fish and wanted to check before I added another school.

    I think you'll be ok if you add them slowly and strictly stick to your maintenance. But aesthetically, it'd be better to swap your cherry barbs. That way you can have a proper sized school.

    Harlequins produce such little waste I think 10 would be fine. Great little fish by the way. One of my favorite all time.
