    Lightbulb 55 Gal. Stocking Help

    0 Not allowed!
    I am trying to map out a stocking plan for my 55 gallon tank (48x12x21). This is what I have so far:

    10 Sterbia Cory
    12 Black Neon Tetra
    10 Bleeding Heart or Diamond Tetra
    1 Swordtail [Male]
    1 Guppy [Male]
    1 Pearl Gourami
    And a decent RCS colony

    I'm looking to add another type of non-schooling fish (a pair or an individual). I initially was thinking the German Blue Rams, but was told they are very delicate, and like higher temps....something the rest of the tank doesn't. Anyone have a suggestion as to a possible addition to the tank?

    Would love any suggestions on fish I may want to consider or information about the above fish--as I just started researching fish for the tank.

    Additionally, any info on Diamond's versus Bleeding Hearts would be awesome.

    I would be concerned about the swordtail focusing aggression on a single male guppy.
