    My plan for stocking the 55 gallon below, please give me your thoughts and suggestions. Thank you.

    Black gravel with light colored rocks setup as caves and some drift wood to give height.
    Lightly planted.
    10 Albino cories
    2 honey gourami
    7 cardinal tetra
    7 rummynose tetra
    4 blue german rams

    Watch the gouramis and the gbr's they are likely to pic on the smaller tetras. If it were me I would up my school of cories to 12 double each of the tetras and do only 2 gbr's

    I am assuming this is the 55 that is being talked about in your other thread?

    I read your other thread and with the filtration you have, I believe the gouramis will work along with the list that HBIC posted above.

    I like the tetras and cories , I have a 180 gal with all kinda of tetras and it looks great . I like the bristlenose plecos they keep the tank clean with the cories . But then I love the Angels too , I put some small angels in with my tetras and they are doing good .
