Quick Stocking Question
Hey guys. Quick stocking question. I'm working on resetting up a 46g bowfront for my housemate (we moved and lost all the fish and most of the plants. Bleh). It's going to be heavily planted as the plants develop--java fern, anacharis, anubias, amazon sword, and playing with hygryphilia compacta for the first time so fingers crossed.
As for the stocking question, I am definitely doing a dozen cherry barbs and 3 dwarf catfish or pitbull plecos. Then I was thinking 4 to 6 corys. That's the pretty easy bit. The main one I'm not so sure about revolves around a centerpiece fish. I finally got her nailed down on what she's really interested in, as I'd shown her rams, apistos, gouramis, and kribs and she had been rather meh about all of them. Then she asked about angels. Now, I've never been interested in angelfish myself, so I'm not as confident about a good tank set up for them. From what I've read, a pair of them (or rather a trio of youngsters where one will get culled once they hit adulthood and figure out who gets on with whom) should do all right with the rest of the planned stocking as cherry barbs are mild mannered barbs and cory cats are one of the species that everything I've read says they pair with extremely well, and a 46g bowfront is tall enough and big enough for an adult pair.
Have I got it figured right? Am I forgetting something, or am I right that it should work out?
