Try it. I think it would depend on the individual gourami. Croakers prefer groups unless when in breeding times, when they will pair up and spawn. So 5-7 individuals probably wouldn't be bad (you...

I would go with cardinal tetras instead of neons because they like the same water temp as the rams (80˚F). I'd also use a rubberlip pleco instead of a bristlenose as they are easier on plants and...

Daphnia are much more nutritious than brine shrimp... easy to grow if you have a small tub and a powerful light.

If you choose to include cichlids of any kind, I'd start off with a group of four and let them pick their own mates. they always get along better in the long term that way. If you choose to do GBR,...

I would go for a group (4-6) of the same species of cichlids, either angels or keyholes or cockatoos (rams should be kept in water that's warmer than the others prefer, about 82˚F). You'll get much...

You're able to keep RCS, amanos, and bamboo shrimp with S petricola? Tell us your secrets (unless they're that the cats are still little...)! Sounds like a real nice setup.

Melafix with large frequent water changes and many feedings of good food will boost the angels' metabolisms and they'll be healthy enough to fight off any infection and heal on their own. Be sure to...

These fish are super awesome. I'd definitely suggest a pair of them. They do dig a little, though, so put some big pebbles around any plants in the tank.

For me it always depended on the angel. Some are so chill and others are really feisty and seem to want to make up for the lack of predatory nature in their kinder counterparts. If you raise the...

Should work fine. Remember, the less they're disturbed, the better the chance of them not dying or being eaten by the parents. If they've raised them this far, there's a good chance they'll go all...

I wouldn't worry too much about taking out one for the swords. I've got 14 of them in a 55 gallon, and they're doing pretty good. Granted, the growth is a little slower than if I had, say, 5, but...

It looks a little pale to be a glowlight... I was thinking yellow pristella tetra. But it may be an albino glowlight.

It sounds like he may have simply died. Some individual fish just do that. And yes, the syno is probably the one who ate him, but it wouldn't have been able to kill him. I'd definitely try another...

What sort of place tetras? Black neons? Heck no. Black skirts? well, if the skirts are freaking hug and the cardinals are tiny, MAYBE. But probably not.
