  1. Default stocking plan for planted 55 gal.

    So I was hoping for some input and suggestions on my stocking ideas. I currently have school of 7 rummynose tetras, a 2.5 inch clown pleco and 2 shrimp (i believe amano) who somehow stowed away on the plants i bought, won't complain there.
    Anyhow, I would like to eventually have a pair of angels, either add to my rummynose school or add a school of serpae tetras, 2 german ram pairs and possibly some corry's. Is this acceptable? also if anyone has any suggestions of different fish i'd be glad of those as well:) The only fish I'm really set on are the angels which I've always wanted, and the ones i already have of course.
    here's a photo of my tank at the moment, does anyone thinks it looks messy or is it just because it's newly planted and needs to grow in a bit?

    Your Tank looks fine to me.

    I would go at least a dozen Rummy noses. I would get Rosy tetras, Flame tetras, Red phantoms if you can find them, instead of Serpae. Alot of people here have suucess with serpae but the ones I've kept in the past were very "nippy' even when kept in a bigger group.

    Get at least 10 Cory's, this will bring out the best of them, research and see which speciecs you like best. And get your Rams, with the way you've decorated your tank they should do well.

    A big school of rummy noses or two medium sized schools of rummy nose and another tetra, a pair of angelfish and 6+ larger cories of the same species would make a nice tank. I am not sure how the rams will do with the angels. Both are cichlids, so there might be aggression. But on the other hand, they are very different sizes, shapes and colors and occupy very different zones of the tank, so it might as well work.m

    Thanks guys!
    From what I've read already i figured if i had enough hiding spots and things to break up the tank that the angels and rams would be fine, since as you said they occupy different levels of the tank.
    Also when getting rams I've read it's best to buy them in a harem if possible? as apposed to pairs?
    I'll continue my research for the corries and tetra species, thanks again for the input! :)
