    Hello all!!
    I think I have finally decided on what I want to add to my guppy tank!! Do you think Harlequin Rasboras would be ok?? How many would I need to get? I was thinking about getting three, then three but not sure how I should space it out. Only one of our lfs carry them so unfortunately I'll have to get them there.
    Thanks again!

    I think it is a fine idea. A week apart should be planty of time for you filter to keep up.

    How big is your tank? I think harlequins would be a great addition if it is big enough. I love my harlequins they are very ptretty and intresting fish. They are also very peacefull!

    My tank is a ten gallon. I do a 25% water change twice a week I really want something other than guppies in there. Hubby picked out the guppies and wanted something else lol. I wouldn't be overstocking would I?

    IF you over care (keep up almost to excess) for the tank you should be fine to add 6ish

    a good read

    Sounds good to me. I would wait about a week or two depending on your filtration before adding the other three. Six would be fine and it sounds like you do good maintenance so stocking shouldn't be a problem.

    the good thing about guppies is how many fish are compatible with them. Harlequins would be a nice choice and would look cool since the guppies are top level and rasboras are mid.

    cory cats can go well with guppies. they only get to be about 2 inches llong, and they will love you. I have had platies with my guppies, but they were bullies to the guppies. Just makde sur that you alwas have good watr for them.

    Yeah, I didn't want the guppies lol!! At least we can find lots of fishies that go well with them.

    I looked into cory cats, and somebody said with my ten gallon i could only get pygmy cories. So like the peppered cories only get 2 inches?? hmm... i know our lfs has some, but don't they need sand?? I didnt want to get any if my gravel would hurt them.
