    55g, heavily planted, 108W of t5ho 6500k, AC70 AC50 filters.

    i have in there now one of each:
    albino bn
    striped raph cat
    blue gourami
    leopard bushfish
    some pest snails (not for long)


    i would like something with color, and that moves alot. also needs to not be eaten by my bushfish.... or nip my gourami. i was thinking some of the phantom sized tetras, or some mollies or something.

    7.0ph
    very soft water (i think like 2-3*kh)
    tank is running hot due to weather, but its useually 77*f
    fully cycled, and nitrates stay well under 20ppm even if i skip my pwc.

    thanks for this input.

    First thing that comes to mind is Congo Tetra. Also Lemon Tetra are neat. Any type of rainbow. You can do a lot with that tank.

    You can go for pencilfish? I wouldn't recommend Dwarf Pencilfish as they might get eaten but some larger species like the purple or coral red would look fabulous.

    rainbows are out, i think they like more space than 48" to run. they might be too much movement too if they are constantly darting back and forth, emperors or lemon tetras might be in. im just worried about nipping lol. my bush fish has moody days when he is the most skidish fish around. so i dont want him getting nipped

    Another recommendation for congos

    They are not nippy and they are typically too fast to get nipped as well.

    They are very good dither fish that can help your blush fish feel more comfortable.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I still stand with pencils. They school beautifully and if you get the correct mix of males to females, depending on your species, you can see some amazing interactions between individuals.

    Sandz suggestion of Lemon tetra's is very viable, they never bother anybody but themselves, when the males stage their "mock battles".

    Rosy tetra's would be a good choice also, and one more vote for Congo's.

    If you can't find them at a LFS try petco or petsmart. I've seen them at mine under red and blue tetra going for 2 or 3 bucks.
