    Hey all! I have had my new aquarium for about a month now. My name is Brad btw I'm new here.


    I have 10 Danios (which im using to cycle) they have been doing very well. Im getting close to the point where I can add more fish. I also have 3 Dwarf Gouramis and they are also doing well. I have had a few ammonia spikes but they are beginning to be fewer and farther between.

    I was just looking for another species that I could add. I want something that will get along with the other fish and is fairly hardy. If you have had any fish that are just awesome and would buy again if you had to what would they be?

    I appreciate any feedback and advice. I thank you and its great to be on here!

    Fancy guppies have always been my favorite by far unless you want to start breeding them I suggest you only get males (they are the ones with all the color anyway)

    I am a fairly new aquarium owner and can let you know what I have been successful with so far. I have a 46gal Bowfront. It is currently stocked with 8 Serpae Tetra, 4 Peppered Cories, 2 female Dalmation Mollies, 1 Male Dwarf Gourami, 1 Male Flame Gourami and 1 Bristlenose Pleco.

    So far this is a peaceful mix that is active at all levels of the tank. The Gourami do tend to battle occasionally, but no harm has been done so far. The Serpae Tetra are know fin nippers, but so far they have kept most nips among themselves...which is normal. The Pleco is pretty awesome looking and mine is quite active. The Peppered Cory are fun to look at.

    Hope this helps,

    I like Blackskirt Tetras and believe they are compatible with your Danio's, also a hardy fish too. Best kept with 6 or more.

    You BOTH need to rehome all of your Gourami except one. Gourami are highly territorial and sooner or later the dominant one will decide to no longer tolerate the others and kill them.

    Did I miss what size tank you had somewhere?
