  1. Default Themed aquarium suggestions


    0 Not allowed!
    I am about to buy a new aquarium and I want to go with a color theme of silvers and blues for my fish. Below I have listed an assortment of fish that fit this, but I am hoping to include something unique and/or other brilliantly colored things I haven't thought of. Also, i am aware that there may be some compatibility issues if i were to integrate all of these species, but right now i am just exploring options. If you have any suggestions that aren't on the list, please post!

    Platinum and/or blue angelfish
    Electric blue rams
    Powder blue gourami
    Silver dollars
    Neon tetras
    Silver hatchetfish
    Blue guppies such as neon blue tuxedo or blue cobra

    In order to provide suggestions for your tank, we will need to know what size tank you are going to purchase - the larger the tank, the more stocking choices you will have.

    Or you could read up on a great many different fishes in the species forums up on the top left of this page . IMO a normal Jack Dempsey is a pretty good looking fish after they're mature and healthy. Both male and female have some beautiful colors that compliment each other. Whatever size you do decide on I wish you luck.

    Or you could read up on a good many fishes in the species forums on the top left hand side of this page . If you get a 75 gallon or larger IMO a pair of NORMAL Jack Dempseys are a very beautiful species of fish especialy when healthy and mature. Both male and female have a very beautiful coloration . Thats my male (normal)JD
    in my avatar . Ain't he a beaut? Good luck with whatever you decide on , and remembr that MTS is a real fun condition.

    Congo Tetras.
    130g: 6 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora
    I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

    My tank is going to be 56 gallons, and I'm hoping to include several species of fish. I really like the look of the electric blue Jack Dempseys but I have read a lot about their aggression. Should I have anything that out grows the tank, I will have no problem relocating to a larger tank.

    In general, it is recommended to get the appropriate sized tank from the beginning. If the funds/space are available, better to start off with the right size and let a fish stay in a tank and not have to transfer if it getting too big. This also allows for more stable water parameters long term. Just my 2 cents.
