    Hmm... I haven't heard good things about keeping cories with Tiger Barbs, and the shark might get possessive about his territory, too. I personally wouldn't risk it.

    DO get corys BUT, I would ditch the shark and TB altogether.

    I would then get more rainbows, More of everything actually. Get some numbers in there and have decent schools.

    What is the actual size or volume of this tank? Can't offer accurate stocking advice with out knowing that.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    It's 40 gallon tank according to the manufacturer. But when I did the math based on its dimensions it worked out to just over 38 gallons. Then you add the decorations and 2+ inches of substrate and it just goes down from there, but I'm not sure by how much.

    I picked up a school of 6 Peppered Corys over the weekend. So far they seem to be loving it here...

    Very happy with these little guys. It's almost like they're puppies playing with eachother, climbing over one another to nibble on food, etc. Very fun fish. :)
