55 stocking ideas

i just set up my 55 and cycled it with some mollies...
plants:

swords...(melon sword, radican sword, brazil sword and 3 others)
java ferns

fish:

3 gb rams (1 m, 2 f)

3-4 ottos

neon or rummynose tetra...i have no idea of how many

and i was hoping to get some angelfish if there is room and if they are compatible with the list above...what do u guys think...maybe 3?

any ideas are greatly appreciated...and if you guys have any other fish ideas...i would love to hear them!!!

G-mont all the way!

55 gal planted, 10 gallon electric yellow cichlid fry tank (gone), 18 gal electric yellow cichlid mouth brooder holding tank (gone), and soon to be a 55 gallon pimpin discus tank (workin on it)!

You could have a dozen RNT's and a trio of Angels with that list no problem..

In terms of bioload, no problem. Just be careful of the angels fighting with each other, or eating neons.

Have you tried threadfin rainbows? They are very beautiful.
They prefer live/frozen food to supplement diet though, but otherwise not too hard to care for. But probably not good idea w/ GBR, angelfish, or fin nippers as they have long flowing fins and are not active swimmers.

A lot of people have GBR, RNT, neon/cardinal combinations. Some w/ angelfish if no neons are around.

Most corydoras species are small and interesting.

Good luck w/ your tank, looking forward to pictures!

RNT is rummynose tetra
GBR is german blue ram

Sounds a lot like my tank, too. It's a popular combo. Threadfins are really neat, but I would do a rainbow tank with them, maybe with some praecox? If only I had the space and money for 1000 tanks

Hmmm . . . sounds like it'll be a pretty neat group of fish when you're done, have you ever thought about Red Serpae Tetras? Everyone says they nip a lot but I've got 6 and they never touch one another (or my other fish). LOVE the rams, they're awesome!! You might want to try Apistogrammas, too, they're small and really pretty. Kinda expensive, though.
