I am thinking of developing a tank with these fish:
1 Starry night or golden nugget pleco
1 Red Tail Shark (or columbian or rainbow or silver)
2 cory cats (sterba or agassizi)
4-6 rainbows (boesemani's or dwarf neon)
live plants and driftwood
I would also like a clown loach and black ghost knife but will wait until I can adequately house them!
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Also will rainbows of different varieties school together? Suggestions for the plants I should add? (I was thinking of this bulk pack of Dwarf Hairgrass, Anubias Nana or Barteri, Java Fern, Red or Green Cryptocoryne, Water Sprite, Anacharis, and Cabomba with some flourite) Is that overkill?
p.s. I may possibly throw in 6-8 zebra danios to add some movement and cuz my daughters love them! or just start a 10 Gal for those little guys
p.p.s. You think the 'shark' would be too aggressive? I'm looking for a more peaceful community but would still like the redtail or rainbow...
