    Gronlaura put THE most important sentence from AA in red & bold for you, I will repeat it for emphasis.

    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.
