    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    yeah i know it dosen`t make my tank any bigger im just going to have to figure this out now.I know i want my cardinals and panda cories i need to figure out if these congos are that nippy.Im also still debating on lowering my amount of rams but i will have to see i can tell all 4 of them apart so if i see any aggression i will know which is which.

    Also i wasn`t suggesting any other forum but this one i had made posts asking if this was going to be to much they said it would be fine because of them being low bio load n such that it would be fine.

    Also before my list was
    10 pandy cory
    10 Cardinal Tetra
    10 Red minor Tetra
    10 Harlequin rasbora
    1 ram
    1 angel

    i was told this list was fine for my 56 gallon but the red minors killed 4 of the 10 Harlequins i had before n beat up the rest pretty bad ended up loseing 4 more so i ended up getting rid of the 10 red minors back to store.So i was just going to replace red minors with Congo because of that issue.

    going to reamp list to
    10 Cardinal Tetra
    10 Rummy Nose Tetra or 10 Colombian tetra
    8 Panda Cory
    3 GBR
    1 Golden Ram
    1 Angel

    rummy put me at 96% and colo put me at 103% stocking

    that puts me at 33fish in a 56 gallon i don`t mind putting the extra work into keeping them healthy n happy ether.Also will lower ram amount to only a pair if they turn to aggressive with time.

    And the lesson there is pretty simple: Be careful who you get advice from.

    Several members keep Red minors or Serpae tetras with no problem. Myself and others not so well.

    A couple of our members keep Angels with Congo's with no problem. I kept Congo's with smaller tetra's and never had a problems. If in doubt ; don't get them and Rummy noses or the Columbians. Which after rereading your post you have, sorry.

    I'm so glad that you have revised your stocking list. I use AQAdvisor as a starting point, then go to seriouslyfish to check out profiles. I ask questions here if I'm not sure or if a red flag pops up on AQAdvisor. I changed my stocking list many times before I settled on my current tank inhabitants.
