    ok, so i want some more active fish in my tank. I think i may be close to over stocked though what do yall think, oh it is a 125 gallong
    2x Angels
    3x Blood parrots
    2x Severum
    15x Lemon tetras
    9x Swordtails
    1x Dwarf gourami
    1x Royal pleco
    15x corries.

    wanting to add maybe 3-5. Im always at lfs seening them swim at top back and forth top to mid level. though i read 2x caresheets saying the are bottem fish

    i know they get 4-5 in. and are night feeders but my lemons are to wide to fit in there mouth. also havnt seen they are fin nippers in any CS yet

    I think this is already a mix that has a lot of potential to explode in your face. Angels, parrots and severums is bound to go wrong sooner or later. Adding the pictus, which really needs a group, will add more stress and is likely to stress out your cories as well.

    the "mix" has been doing good for 2x years, lol as i know at least 4 people that keep that mix fine. though i was thinking the they may mess with the cories

    Well, you asked for opinions. Either you're lucky or you got some timid fish there. lol

    Pictus are bottom dwellers - you can't always judge a fish by how it acts at the store. I would be concerned about keeping them with corys.

    Not with corries, anything a pictus can get in its mouth it will eat and corries dont get big enough to being eaten tail first at night.

    As far as your other stock I would love to see pics! I dont think there is a single issue with the stock being that you have the space to make up for mildly pugnatious fish.
    FW: 1 45gal, 1 40gal, 3 10gal, 3 30gal all community tanks of different species
    Sw: 1 55gal, 1 30gal show, 1 29gal show, 1 20gal and 2 10's
