110G Community Stocking Suggestions

I bought myself a 110G for Christmas (journal thread is in my signature), and now I'm ready to add some more fish to my collection.

Currently has:

7 Male Guppies, 7 Neon Tetras, 1 Otocinclus, 2 adult and 4 juvenile Dalmatian Mollys.

I'd like to get some larger fish - probably not any more schools. Are there any peaceful sharks?

The tank is heavily planted.

I'm pretty sure most 'sharks' will eat the neons and possibly the guppies. Also, ottos do better in groups of at least 3-5. You could maybe try twig catfish... Angelfish might be nice too!

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

I see that you don't have the tank fully covered, so my idea of Roseline barbs is gone. They really do look nice though, especially in a group of about 6 or more. You could also go with some Congo tetras (at least 4). To me, a true community tank has at least 2 Angelfish, but that is up to you.

Denisan barbs, or rosealine sharks, would look great there really peacefull i have 4 in my 55 gal planted community tank, there so timid that even the 5 black neon tertas i have in the tank school with them, or you could do dwarf cichlids like rams and cockatoo cichlids, i also have them in the tank with the denisan barbs they look realy nice

Thanks, I didn't realize that. I'll get a few more - I really enjoy watching those guys

Angelfish sound like a good choice too - I'll have to read more about them. There is a pretty strong current in my tank, so I don't want them to get blown about

So, after a trip to the pet store today, we came home with 7 black skirt tetras, 5 more fancy guppies, a golden gourami, and a red tail shark.

They're all having fun adjusting to life in their new home. My daughter is thrilled
