  1. Wink 35 gallon shopping for centerpiece

    0 Not allowed!
    hello everyone,
    I have a planted (i think heavily but others may not think so) 35 gallon (140 litres) aquarium.
    It has in it
    8 neon tetras, (i plan on getting another 7 or 8)
    2 adult guppies
    2 albino bristlenoses
    and about 10 red cherry shrimp.

    The filtering system is an eheim ecco pro type 2034.
    i do a water change every week or two, however the nitrates never rise above 10ppm. in fact i went on holiday for a month with someone feeding twice a week, no water changes and the nitrates was still below 10.

    I feel that the aquarium is missing a centerpiece and was wondering which one to go for. I have thought about dwarf gouramis and bolivian butterflies.

    does anyone have any other suggestions?

    In my experience with mine, I don't think the Dwarf Gourami would be happy with that set up. They like a big space to themselves, mine constantly chases other fish around. But he is the "Big" boss of the tank

    If you can get a pair of the Rams they are awesome fish. Just watch your water params since they are more fragile than most fish about needing good water

    Either a dwarf gourami or pair of bolivians would work well in your set up. A pair of kribs or pair of apistos would be other options.

    Any of the above mentioned combos would be excellent. My vote is for a Dwarf Gourami or pair of Apistos.

    With the 35 gal you could get a Pearl Gourami they only get 4" and are peaceful.

    I like the gourami idea; IME they have such big personalities that they make wonderful centerpieces. A dwarf, some honeys, or a pearl would look great in your setup.

    I'm a fan of the pearl gourami idea, they are beautiful though I have read that they are shy.
