  1. Default I need some ideas for a fish

    The tank and fish are listed down in my signature.

    I am looking for a fish that can be a solitary fish, under 6 inches, that was some color it can add to the tank.

    Anyone have suggestions?

    You should just fix your stock instead of looking for a new fish.

    Tetras and cories are schooling species, they need to be 6 of each species - minimum - to be called a proper school. Also, i'm not sure of how your gourami is fairing up with the barbs, also your neons.

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    I agree. I think your tank is already fully stocked

    The barbs and the gourami suprisingly ignore each other. Tetras also are indifferent to the others in the tank.

    The glow lights and the black neon tetras school together, forming a school of 7, but I was strongly considering bolstering their numbers, 6 black neon, 6 glow light, and 6 Cardinal.

    The only drama in the tank is the tiger barbs tend to nip the cory cats, and the rainbow shark is always chasing the barbs, but never catches them. Its fun to watch.

    I was already 75% convinced that putting some more cory cats, and tetras in, adding some shrimp and stopping there. I just didnt know if there was any individual fish with some color that would be a good fit, but you all are probably right.

    You should listen to pjaldave and fix your tetra schools.
