    That is so strange, I never had issues with Cardinals! What about considering this stocking (since in another thread you were looking to add):

    7 Angelfish, 6 Bolivian, 12 Neon Tetras, 20 Corries of your favorite species, 20 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus (let him live out his life), 4 dwaft pleco's, 15 Congo Tetra... Mix in 6 wild Tefe discus maybe? (just kidding on the last one... kinda)

    I have been particularly fond of rubber lips lately. My abnp has a lot of attitude too.

    Jiminey Cricket Sandz! Lol, you are one ambitious stocker!!! I don't know, that seems a bit much for me.

    You've got to take into consideration that I'm still using HOB's for this tank. Lol. When I get my filtration where I want it something like that might be possible.

    I will say that my main concern is crowding 7 breeding age angels. I'm really afraid that it'l get ugly if the angels don't have enough room.

    I have considered cories, but as a catfish they tend to be messy right?

    Anyway, I DID decide to add a school of Congo Tetras. They will eventually replace my neons entirely. I'm a person who likes large schools of fish as opposed to a bunch of different species.

    My Serpaes are def here to stay. Cories are something to think about though -- my kuhlis are barely seen.

    I think your advanced enough to try Cardinals, If you wanted. I've ordered 36 of them from the Wet-spot and they are still all alive. The trick to keeping Cardinals is good water parms and you are always on top of your tank, so thats why I feel you would have success with them.

    As Sandz said in another post; Cardinals are, "once acclimated to your tank", healthier fish than Neons because they are still mostly wild caught stock. Whereas Neons are so mass produced they are actualy, genetically weaker than Cards.

    Not your exact quote Bro but I got most of it, LOL.

    Ambition has never been lacking by me lol... I think even with the HOBs you will be fine. I totally understand not crowding the breeding angels but would also point out that you are already adding the congo's, that wont be an issue, the corries take up a level of the tank not really used, pleco's are a low to mid dweller too. The corries wont be big poopers, they are the one catfish that ISNT super messy. So in short, you are not really taking up anything you arent already planning. THats why I put together that stock list

    I also agree with this. Cardinals are a fish I strongly recommend to drip aclimate for a few hours to adjust to the tank. Once aclimated they should be in your tank for years to come. The biggest consideration, as with all fish, is the source.

    Thanks for all the advice you guys! I have to say that I'm not much of a pleco fan. All the ones that I do like turn out to be pretty expensive for some reason. Lol.

    You've really planted the idea of corries in my head now. I'm thinking 10 or so.

    I guess I just don't want to go through the trouble of trying to find somewhere reliable to get Cardinals. I'm also just ready for a change. I think the Congo's will be great for that. :)

    Thanks for all the votes of confidence. :) You guys make me happy.

    I'll keep you all updated. At the moment my main concern is trying to get this tank planted more to help cut down on any growing aggression with my Angels. I like them, but they stress me out. I'm just so afraid that they will go nuts on me now that they are getting so big.

    I can help find the source for you - the wet spot Portland OR... but its the shipping and blah blah blah... gets expensive. I like the congo choice better too.

    Quick hint: Do NOT google "wet spot".... that's just terrible and definitely NSFW. lol

    If you want an alternative source, I just found out that Gunpowderfish.com also sells them. I've purchased SAEs and my Black Ruby Barbs from them and have had excellent service. Carapar used them for his Otos, too, and they arrived safe/sound, too.

    Wet Spot has them for: 10 for $25
    Gunpowder has them for: 6 for $15

    Pretty sure shipping is the same or similar at each place.
