    Default Adding to my new 46 gallon tank with existing swordtails

    0 Not allowed!
    Hello everyone, I have recently upgraded my set up from a 20 gallon tank with 4 swordtails and 1 platy, with a rubbernose pleco and clown pleco to a 46 gallon. I have already added 9 corys, I think 5 are juli-something and 4 are black and white with spots. I would like to add a schooling tetra of some kind, considering cardinal tetras or rummy nose. Also, thinking of a centerpiece fish. Would a betta, angel or gourami be better? I have been reading and researching, but I can't quite make up my mind and I want my tank to be as colourful as possible. I have java fern, amazon sword and anubia planted. I am interested in some floating plants as well. Any suggestions would be very appreciated!

    Welcome to the AC!

    Congrats on your new tank! How long was your 20 gallon tank running before your upgrade?

    It would be a wise idea to determine the genders of your swordtails and platy. These are all livebearers. You would look for the Gonopodium (which only males have) to differentiate genders.

    There are several plant-guru members here. Hopefully a couple of them will chime in for you.

    Please don't think that you must add in a 'centerpiece' - do what appeals to you. Enjoy the process.

    Do you happen to have a photo of your setup? I'd love to see it.
