I was wondering how I should go about stocking my 125G. Should I go by the 1" per gallon rule? or by what feels right?
It will be housed with 2-3 groups or schooling fish and a breeding pair of kribs.
The tank will be Heavily planted, with CO2 and med/high lighting

For the schooling fish I was going to do Pork Cjops [rasbora espes] and Lemon tetras. With maybe a few cherry barbs to add some red

The latter.:proud: Cherry barbs do not really shoal at all. You might need tight shoalers like rasboras, cardinal tetras, rummy-nose tetras, lemon tetras and neons.:icon_mrgr

Part of what I like about my 135 is that the fish have plenty of room to move about, the danios play their group games with one leading and the rest rushing to keep up.

I don't think you'd want anywhere near 120 inches of fish in the tank, I'm sure it can be done, it just doesn't appeal to me...neither would the maintenance!
