I'm starting a 55gal planted tank. I have plants ordered already and plan on starting to add my fish two weeks or so after they are planted. Ill be dosing PPS-Pro as well as liquid carbon and a DIY paintball co2 system. It's a 48" long tank, I'm running a t-5ho system with a 10k and 6.7k bulbs, along with a fluval 306. Here is my current stock list:
Cardinal tetra - 15
Congo tetra - 8
Cory's - 6
German blue ram - pair
Pearl gourami - 1
Will the rams be ok with the gourami? What are you opinions on my list? I was thinking maybe a trio of gourami and scratch the rams? Or possibly getting a pair of gourami scratch the rams and get another small school? Idk yet what do you guys think?
Not completely sure about congo tetras, but the stock overall seems pretty good to me. Rams hang out near the bottom, and the gourami at top, so I don't think there will be an issue. I would personally stick with the plan for rams, most beautiful community fish after discus IMO. You can also do a lone angel instead of gourami, but at this point im just throwing suggestions out there
