    Default Looking to top off the 37 gallon


    0 Not allowed!
    So I lost a couple mollies over the past month or so, so now I am looking at topping of the stocking of the 37 gallon. Thus I am looking for some suggestions on fish that would go in with the current inhabitants.

    Current stocking is -
    - 4 Black Mollies
    - 3 Pearl Gourami
    - 5 Assassin Snails

    not sure what I want in there. There are a few molly fry in there at the moment, although I think the pearl's ate a few of the smallest ones as I had more than 20 at one point and I think I got half that now.

    Parameters just before my weekly 35% water changes
    - Ammonia 0 ppm
    - Nitrite 0 ppm
    - Nitrate 5 ppm
    - pH 7.6 (stable out of the tap that way to)
    - Temp 79 F
    Current tanks:
    37G FW - 3 Pearl Gourami, 4 Black Mollies, approximately 20+ Molly Fry, 5 Assassin Snails | 10G Planted FW - 14 Molly Fry, rocks, DW and an Anubias Nana - journal

    "Joy", huh?...that's what you call it?....no, I could give you all of the juvies, and keep the 20+ fry, and still have an endless supply...I'd even let you have a few fry, too, and still would never run out

    Seriously though, have you considered maybe some tetras?...there are so many kinds to choose from, they should get along fine with the rest of your stock, and they are easy to care for

    Debora, that profile suggests a lower pH and temp than what I keep my current tank at. I could look at some of the tetra's though or maybe a school of small cory as well.

    Tetras are always a good choice for a community tank. I'm partial to serpae tetras. They have a reputation for being nippy, but I've personally not seen that behavior.

    My serpaes get a little nippy now and then with each other....but never touch the other fish.
