  1. Cool Tank mates for a German Blue Ram?


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi everyone

    It has been a while since my last post and my tank has gone through quite the transformation.
    It is now a happy healthy tank with black moon sand substrate and contains my lovely GBR (i think she is female), 9 black line tetras, 6 sterbai cories, 5 ottocats and a bronze cory and an albino cory.
    I am aware the tank is very bottom heavy, but a couple of the cories had nowhere to go but the toilet bowl unless i took them.
    All the fish are healthy, the tank is long since cycled and very well maintained-

    My question is as follows:

    What kinds of non aggressive more decorative fish can i add to the tank to make it look a little more lived-in?

    Should i exchange the black line tetras for a different kind of schooling fish?

    The most important thing is that the tank be "stress-free".

    Also, would another female german blue do well in the tank? It's a 30g. Or would adding a male work?

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    I have a pair of breeding gbrs. They are territorial and will try to keep everyone out of their space. And they have a dislike of live plants. All that to say dont get a male. A female might just work if they can get along, but you might have to rehome the new female if they dont.

    Hello
    I have a non-planted tank now- that's one of a few changes, i have yet to update my file.

    I guess i'm wondering more about how to fill out the tank.

    Cherry barbs were suggested to me, or harlequin rasboras- but would i have to give up my school of tetras for that?

    I have no friends involved with aquarium things- and i don't really trust the staff at the aquarium store- some are knowledgeable, some are not-

    You should be able to add 5 to 7 harlquin rasboras easily. And not remove anyone. If you want to add plants more info is needed.

    If you're looking for more of a schooling fish, definitely go with Harlequins over the barbs. I have Cherry Barbs and was quite disappointed how much they just fan out. I will also suggest cardinal tetras. Great schooling fish and are very attractive fish IMO.
    I have more (and better) conversations with fish, dogs, and myself than I do with actual people.
    Myself, the fish, and the dogs all agree.

    Thanks for your input-
    I am also wondering about threadfin rainbowfish-
    Would they be alright too? If so, how many?
    I am not intending to put live plants in at this time, my last foray into that was disastrous, lol.

    The same amount of thread fin rainbows would work. There's also Dwarf Neon Blue rainbowfish that stay 2 inches or so. Those would also work with your setup.
