    i think ive decided to veer away from the angel fish due to its aggression towards smaller fish. i was really set on the idea of having a decent sized school of neon tetras.

    this is the current stock list i'm set on .

    one dwarf gourami
    13 neon tetras
    6 cherry barbs
    6 cherry shrimp
    4 albino corys
    3 guppys
    any thoughts?

    I have no experience with cherry barbs but understand some barbs can be kind of nippy - so I'd advice doing more reading on their profile. Another school of some kind of tetra to go with the neons might work better. Also - you should have a minimum of 6 cory. And if you get guppies (male and female) be prepared for Many, many guppies before too long :o)

    Cherry Barbs are much more peaceful than their larger cousins and are good community fish. And +1, Cories need at least 6. They are a schooling fish too.

    one dwarf gourami
    13 neon tetras
    6 cherry barbs
    6 cherry shrimp
    4 albino corys
    3 guppys
    This is a lot of species for a 30g IMO. I would stay with only one bottom-dweller, so either the cories or the shrimp, not both.

    And with the Neons, Cherries, Gourami AND Guppies thats 4 mid-top dwelling species in one tank. I would only recommend 2 mid-top dwelling species, possibly 3. Although I would recommend 2 as a larger school looks far more attractive than 2 smaller schools.

    So:
    - 1 Gourami OR 3 male Guppies
    - 20 Neon Tetras OR 15 Cherry Barbs
    - 8 Albino Cories

    If you really wanted more species you could do:
    - 1 Gourami OR 3 male Guppies
    - 15 Neon Tetras
    - 10 Cherry Barbs
    - 6 Albino Cories

    ... although I would recommend the first option.

    Hope I helped.

    Great advice, Amelia. One thing you should note Gmez - when we see neons in the store, they are so pretty all together because they are in a small tank all together. Once your neons get acclimated and comfortable in your tank, however, they are NOT going to school. they are going to be all over that tank in maybe groups of 2 or 3 or even singly. Only when they're scared, will they school tightly. so, if you're thinking you'll have those clustered little group of flashing neon, it's not going to happen. Just something to think about when you're visualizing how the tank would look. So Amelia's 1st plan with 20 neons or 15 cherrys would have the most visual impact. And with a gourami as a centerpiece it would be a really gorgeous tank. Good luck!!
