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!

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 :)
