    Hi all, I recently started a 20Gal high tank freshwater. when I was at the petstore recently, I picked up a fish but I do not know what kind it is. Can anyone help me so that I can include it in my freshwater aquarium stocking calculator? photo.JPGphoto%u0025282%29.JPGphoto%u0025281%29.JPG

    Not sure but the body shape suggests a kind of Killifish.
    Remember that calculator is only a guide line. Not the be all.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Looks like a young golden wonder killifish to me. Up to 4 inches long, large mouth and potentially predatory with small fish like neon tetras and guppies

    ok great. thanks so much for your help i think it is a golden wonder killifish after I looked a little more at some pictures.

    I have a great filter on this tank and I'd like to put a few more fish in. Do you think thats a terrible idea?

    Equipments:

    Tank (LxDxH): 24 x 12 x 16 inch (19.9gUS)
    Filters: Marineland Emperor 400

    I have 2 glofish tetras (my least favorite cause they look fake)
    6 platys (2 high fin, 4 regular/mickey mouse) 4 F/2M
    2 dwarf gouramis (one blue/one red)
    1 golden wonder killiefish (still very small)

    i really think i dropped the ball by not getting any schooling fish (and the glofish tetras really should not be just 2). Ive had it up and going for about a month now with no major issues.

    any thoughts? I could maybe take a few back to the pet store if I want to rearrange a little bit. I really want the perfect group.
