    Hi guys let me start off by saying what an awesome site this is. Finally all the advice I need without it all relating to overseas pet shops, water conditions etc. I decided to finally give in to the MTS and buy myself a 300l tank to setup as a low tech planted tank having had a 60l running for the last 18 months. Unfortunately my 60l suddenly felt very insecure about itself so it decided to crack and dump its water on the floor:eek: so now all the fish that were in there are being transferred this weekend to the new 300l. It is 3 Zebra danios and 1 dwarf gourami. Now onto my real question. Does anyone have any ideas for some interesting fish that I could put into the new tank Im thinking of something like kissing gouramis or angels almost like a centre piece for the tank then a few smaller fish to sort of fill in the gaps. Im not to keen on anything that could possible damage the current fish since these guys have been through a lot this week having to live in a plastic dustbin while I find the time to sort out their new home. Specs for the tank are an external canister filter (cascade 1000) 2 30w lights and 2 300w heaters. Substrate will be PFP capped with PFS sand which I might add is one heck of a mission to wash. Your help is greatly appreciated

    i dont know about angels and zebra danios have never kept the two together.why not get a mate for your dwarf gourami.how bout 4-6 angels and a small shoal of some kind of tetra not small enough to be angel food.i would also go for moonlight gouramis before kissing ones though

    OK what I have been waiting to see for a long time is someone with a barb tank.
    All kinds, Tiger barbs, green tiger barbs, golden(sunrsise) tiger barbs and then some rosy barbs etc.

    A big fat school of barbs.

    Ok just might have just convinced myself to go this route when my tetras go to that other place.

    O and if your the luckies person ever to find some odessa barbs

    I think I have decided to go with a small school of angels probably about 4 then another dwarf gourami and a nice big school of tetras lastly a couple of corys. Btw just doubled checked the size and realized its only 250l not 300l
