    Thanks, my internet must be faulty or something. No matter what I try to search for I can only find aquaadvisor. If you do come across them again, please do post them. They may be a handy tool to have. Oh and if anyone else finds any please let me know.

    I can't find any others either.

    Why does your stocking only include 2 fish? You have more than that. What's your current full stocking?

    I have no clue why it only includes two... The current stock is:
    Two Bluefin notho killifish
    Seven Beckford's pencils
    Two dwarf pencils (it should be noted that not only do the two species of pencils school together, the killies appear to think that they're pencilfish, and they school with the pencils)
    Two julii, two salt-and-pepper, one unknown cory, all of whom school together.
    Two dwarf cories who alternate between schooling with the other cories and playing with the pencilfish.
    One six-inch twig catfish
    One bristlenose pleco who's slightly under an inch and a half but growing like a little weed.
    Three female bettas who get in flare-arguments now and then but get along pretty well.
    Two albino four regular glowlight tetras who school with eachother and sometimes with the pencilfish.
    Two endler's livebearers, males, who will probably be joined by at least four females eventually, since they're so small.
    One stiphodon (algae-eater) goby, just under three inches but very thin. Thin as in body shape, he's not underweight.
    One stonehead Sulawesi goby, about an inch and a half, full size probably around two inches.
    One orange-throated darter, under an inch long, maximum size just under three inches, very slender body shape.
    Two sunset dwarf gouramis, exactly an inch long at the moment.
    One peacock gudgeon
    One African dwarf frog
    One or two assassin snails
    A couple of MTS and a few random pond snails that don't have long to live before they get assassinated.

    I know it looks like a lot, but like I've said, they're mostly very small.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

    You have 18 species in your tank. I think this is the worst stocking list I have seen in the year I have been a forum member. It doesn't matter if aqadvisor shows your tank 94% stocked. It doesn't matter if your fish are small. It matters what species you have and if they are in proper schools and with the right tankmates. The female bettas should not be in this community tank. The flaring is probably a sign of stress - if they're "getting in flare arguments" they're not "getting along pretty well". Your 4 species of cories should each be in a school of at least 6. I would think your fish are very stressed. What are you going to do with them when they get bigger?

    The female bettas aren't actually fighting. What I meant by that is, when these particular two find eachother, they stare for a moment, flare their fins and gills out, maybe circle eachother once, then swim away. They don't fight, and they don't show stress lines, they just flare.
    The cories all school together, they don't care that they're different species.
    None of my fish are showing any signs of stress. They're all brightly colored, they're active, out in the open, and the only visible damage is on two of the bettas from when that gold gourami attacked them.
    Most of them aren't going to get bigger. The bristlenose and darter are babies, so they'll grow, but they don't get huge, the dwarf gouramis will grow a little bit, some of the cories might get just a bit bigger, and the twig cat might get an inch longer, but the tetras, pencilfish, livebearers, and dwarf cories aren't going to grow more than a couple of millimeters, and everything else is pretty much full size. Like I said, I'm closely monitoring the tank for any signs of any problems, and there are none.
    I understand that my stocking list is highly unconventional, but I have done a good deal of research and I see no problems whatsoever with the inhabitants. If problems develop, they will be corrected.
    I'd also just like to say that I've seen people on here with several comet goldfish and a common pleco or two in a ten gallon tank. I don't think this is the worst stocking mentioned, even though it isn't exactly the best.

    Agreed might be better to get more fish of the same species, perhaps you can trade them with people or (not likely) LFS to get a more natural look to the tank.
    Also consider the needs of the individual fish, Stiphodon generally need fast flowing and high oxygen water.
    15 Gallon Tarantula tank - Completed. - 1x Lasiodora parahybana
    55 Gallon South-America tank - Neverending. - 10x Nannostomus trifasciatus, 4x Corydoras aeneus, 2x Megalechis thoracata, 2x Acarichthys heckelii
    15 Triassic tank - Planning started. - Possibly a healthy group of Triops cancriformis

    Actually, my LFS is usually happy to trade. I'm going to fiddle around with ideas for a little while, although I like the way the tank looks.

    Most of the front glass in the tank has a fast current running across it, like the sort of environment that high-oxygen fish prefer, but oddly my Stiphodon seems to be avoiding that patch of the tank. Is there a subspecies that doesn't like fast water? Because he's actually staying in the parts of the tank with way less flow than the front.
