    Default Stocking a 90 Gall

    0 Not allowed!
    Hello all - longtime "lurker" here that finally registered and was hoping for some advice on stocking.

    90 gallon tank running a fluval FX5 Canister; heavily planted with some round rocks and driftwood.

    Tank is new-ish (2 months) but fully cycled: 0 ammonia and Nitrite and 10ppm Nitrate
    Temp is 78 F

    This is the current stock:
    1x German Blue Ram
    1x Bolivian Ram
    3x Oto Cat
    2x Swordtail
    5x Neon Tetra
    2x Denison Barb (Roseline Shark)
    8x Kuhli Loach

    Going back to the LFS:
    5x black skirt tetras (due to just being little $hits - they nip at just about everyone on occasion)
    1x Platti (Due to the temp issue ?)

    Interested in adding the following; but preference to the angel:

    2 Angels (Very small from my lfs)
    1 Red Blood Parrot ?

    Anyone have any suggestions or issues with any of the above ? Any suggestions on a totally different route ?

    Any help appreciated.

    I would increase the neon group to around 15-20 at least. Idk if I like swordtails in community tanks the males are very aggressive and if there are females you will possibly have a population control issue.

    I also would focus on a few more rams they are fairly gregarious fish.

    Never been a fan of parrot cichlids.

    Only issue I have had is that it seems the neons are fagile as glass. At some point I had 12 of them and they dissapeary - Can't imagine that they were eaten since i dont have any particularly large fish, out of the 7 that died i've only ever found 1 body. At this point I think I have given up on the neons.

    also, to note - I haven't lost any of the other fish aside from the very first batch which I believe was caused due to me adding too many at once (4 mid-large mollies) and crashed my cycle.
