Hey there all
Been awhile since I posted, but I always do love lurking. Figured I might de-lurk to see if I can elicit some ideas.
I am moving soon, and I am taking the opportunity to overhaul and completely do over my 40 breeder. I don't have plans for specific plants quite yet, because I want to get the fish options handled first.
What I have in there now is a school of 15 rummynose tetra (bleheri variety). And one single lone pygmy cory that I had thought died, but evidently had not. I know I will increase the pygmy cory school, but was wondering if I should get an apisto or ram or something similar.
I like the idea of a "centerpiece fish", but I had had larger fish in the tank previously, and the rummynose did nothing but cluster in a corner more often than not. Once I removed the larger fish (they were boisterous bosemani) to a larger tank, the rummynose came back out of their shy little shells. So whilst a larger centerpiece fish might be nice, it would have to be something mellow and laid back that the rummynose wouldn't fret over.
