    ok im haveing a hard time finding emp. tetra's so i was thinking of putting my 3 emps into a dif tank for now and replace them with 5 Boesemans Rainbow do u think this would be pushing it to far? the list would be:
    10 Cardinal Tetras
    7 Rummy nose tetra
    5 Boesemani Rainbow (this would replace having 7 emps)
    7 Panda Cory
    4 Bronze Cory (i think they bronze they kind of look like a mix of bronze/gold stripe i gave up on finding which type they are lol)
    1 German Blue ram
    1 Golden Ram
    1 Angel Fish

    Tank is 30 x 18 x 24
    56 gallon Planted community
    and i uslay change around 30-35% a week
    im current working on getting a Eheim 2217 for this tank but it currently has 2 hob filters (tetra 55/75)

    n then i checked AQadvisor:



    Recommended temperature range: 26 - 26 C. [Display in Farenheit]
    Recommended pH range: 6.4 - 7.
    Recommended hardness range: 5 - 12 dH.




    You have plenty of aquarium filtration capacity.

    Your aquarium filtration capacity for above selected species is 160%.Help on Filtration capacity
    Recommended water change schedule: 34% per week.
    Your aquarium stocking level is 124%

    Knowing I'm likely to be the only one but..

    Boesemani are surprisingly shy for their size so a bigger group would be better and do best in neutral to alkaline water that's reasonably hard, They also get quite big and like to stretch their fins. A 30 inch tank is very small.

    The other fish are all soft, slightly acidic water fish.
    You got three cichlids so planting is important.

    A single species of cory would look better and likely do better.

    I would say the Boes are just fine replacing the tetra. The rest of your stock you seem to have had for a while...
    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

    yeah i had no trouble finding the cardinals and rummies and i found them in perfect ammount too but its the emps my pet store said they arn`t gettting anymore and i checked all other other 8-10 petstores i have none of them even carry them in stock. and when i look online for them 75% of places have them out of stock and yeah i love my stock i have currently im acutaly working on a 20 gallon setup for betta i was going to make a shellie tank but theres really no good stocks around here and the ones online are just to pricey im hopeing in the future to get another larger tank then my 56 im loving this hobby XD Also i got like 0 deaths into this just 1 little panda died but i think there was somthing wrong with him because he wasn`t growing like the rest of them.

    yeah i was debating on there size for this tank tall and i know just 5 would be pushing it for them and for the cories i know just 1 type would of been better but my dad just loves these corydoras and kept asking for a dif color so i grabbed some nice looking bronze mixed looking ones they where labled gol stripe but they don`t have the stripe but are that color to them and so reason why i got 2 dif colors is that n it acutaly looks pretty nice like that because i didn`t notice till now but its acutaly kind of hard to see the panda's in my setup and they all snuggle up and then eat with each other so im happy with the 2 dif types.

    Is there another type of rainbow that might fit then? cause i don`t want to stress them out to death if they don`t like the soft/acidic peat water i have.
    i was asking for boeseman cause there so pretty and i seen a few good stocks around here latly.

    Looks good. If you realy like Emperor tetras and don't mind ordering them, this place has all of them in stock right now: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...47534661,d.cGE

    They have regular, the Kerri (no relation) and the rare Rainbow:http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aqua...d.php?t=110456

    If you like the Boeseman's, unless your water is super soft/acidic than they should do okay.

    see my problem is i only need 4 of them but it says minimum 24$ and 4 emps would be 12$
    im going to have to wait till i can set up my 20 gallon betta tank cause i want some cories for there too then i should be able to hit the 24$ ._.

    i keep my water around 6-6.5ph and its very soft water cause rams n cardinals seem to love it like that so yeah i don`t think the boeseman would like it.

    You got near perfect south American water and a decently stocked tank with happy inhabitants? Why suddenly the urge to add extra fish crowding the tank and an incompatible one at that?
