    Not sure on the GBR. I know from personal experience that neons and mollies work well at 26c.

    Harlequins, Kuhlis??? I leave the Plecs to "Plecoholic" @tallldutchie hahaha !!!
    I like DD's suggestion of Harlequins they always mix well with Neons.

    @ talldutchie

    I will need to double check my aquarium before I respond to you with my aquarium's foot print, but I will get back to you.

    @ DoubleDutch

    I do really like the Harlequin Rasbora, but I was concerned that the Kuhli Loach was to big as an adult for my aquarium to house a decent sized group.

    @ Compass

    Would I be able to include just three Cherry Barbs at a 1:2 ratio, or would I need to include more than three at a 1:2 ratio? The Bolivian Ram appears to be a nice alternative, but I was hoping to add a more colorful specimen.

    I would like to let everyone know that I am interested in a community aquarium where all of the fish thrive. I do not want my fish to simply survive. My last aquarium housed a Beta, a Red Tail Shark, a Rainbow Shark, a Bala Shark, Mollies, Neon Tetras, Silver Hatchet Fish, a Common Pleco, an Algae Eater, crabs, snails, and a crawfish simply because I could keep them alive. However, I want to do it right this time. I am not looking to add fish that will survive. Instead, I am looking to add fish that will thrive.

    Good for you NES!! No one here would suggest something to you that we think would "just survive." You can do the cherries as a group of 3 if you want. As far as the ram is concerned you could still get a GBR but just make sure you know where it is coming from. Dave66 has a sticky on earth eater cichlids and I think the ram is in there. He talks about what to look for in one. You can also look into some of the apistogramma cichlids very pretty fish.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Ok, I have taken into consideration the suggestions that have received, and I have come up with the following:

    -Neon Tetras
    -Cherry Barbs
    -Kuhli Loaches
    -Bronze or Albino Cories
    -Cherry Shrimp
    -Apple Snail

    Is there any way that I can make this work? I chose the Cherry Barbs over the Harlequin Rasboras due to the fact that the Harlequins limited my water parameters more than I liked. The Cherry Shrimp prefer a pH slightly above what is recommended for the other fish, but I hope that they can fit into this community aquarium. I know that these fish surpass the inch per gallon suggestion, but I believe most of these fish have a low bio load. Are there any comments, or suggestions to further help me.

    I forgot to mention that I will be running twin Tetra Whisper 40l's with a biweekly 30% water change, and the aquarium will be planted. Please ask if there are any other questions about the setup.

    You have a good start to stock. If you want to do plants what lights do you have or do you need new ones? If new lights neded look into led lights.

    @ cm12setx

    I am tossing my current lighting in the garbage because it is built into the aquarium's lid which is now cracked. My brother works with glass as well as wood, and I am going to get him to build me a custom canopy for my aquarium. Do you have any other lighting suggestions such as make, or model?

    Look at finnex which i use or current brands. I personaly like finnex better when i got my 30" planted plus the lights are over a 30" length. Not 24" of leds with expansion legs to fit 24" to 34" length tanks. This is a hex tank so width and hight of tank are important. As in light pentration from top to bottom of tank. And width is for what size light to use. Figuer out size of coustom hood brother can build and then look for lights to fit it properly.

    Ok, thank you for the suggestions. When I get the blueprint for my new canopy completed I will know what to start looking for.
