View Full Version : Now all I need are fish! Suggestions?

03-26-2015, 10:03 PM
I rescaped and tore out a lot of the clutter. Now I just need something swimming around in the water column. What would you add? I'm thinking a couple medium (4-6") fish, probably cichlids, maybe angels (silver and black striped angels are sleek ), don't have the $$ for discus. Maybe I can grow out a dozen of those free angel fish that one of you will provide for a nominal fee... Maybe a school of 15 cardinals too? (anybody selling cardinals?)

What do you suggest I look into that I'm over looking?
Feel free to suggest a fish to me that you're just tried of looking at.
I have a basement full of aquarium supplies ( and a bunch of pellia) so if you're up for trading instead of cash, works for me.
Ps: I have amano shrimp, what's it worth?

What size tank and what do you already have in it? Suggest you come to the auction if you can wait that long.

37 gallons
2 albino bushy nosed pleco of some sort, possibly rubber lip (see pic)
1 BN pleco
2 kribs ( they can go, I'm ready for a change)
2 male albino cories
Last, and least, two red fish, I have no idea what they are, see photo. They can also go.

What do you want to trade for two red fish and a couple kribs and amano shrimp (other tank) and pellia ? I haven't added any new fish or plants to any of my tanks in at least six months and they're all healthy, no deaths in a while ( and he had it coming) so guaranteed disease free.

The red fish are cherry barbs :)

I have some largish angels, if you're interested... silver and marble with Philippine blue /glitter genes

So its a very tall 36" tank? A breeding pair of veil-tail angels would look very nice in it. So would less common highs, flat cichlid like festivum or severum

The albino plecos are BNs as well so you have 3 BNs in this tank and there is a good chance you will end up with a pair when the albinos grow up.
You should get at least one more SAE. They are social fish.
Also I would up the corys to at least 4 or 5. After that it does not leave you too much room to add much. Maybe one or a pair center piece fish (angels are a good suggestion) or a school of small fish.
