    Thank you.
    @nealos6
    2 ottos
    Bronze cory, pepper cory, albino cory,panda cory, sterbai cory.
    Brown loach.
    2 rummy nose.
    4 neon tetra.
    I had plenty ramhorn snails now i have a few assinssin snails. :D
    I want to have a community tank, My betta passed recently of age i assume? He lost his colour, loss of appetite and had holes in his fins.

    Had him for 3 years and was already big when i got him so no idea of his age. hes the reason i got this tank wasnt aggressive towards the other fish at all.

    I would like to get some shrimp.
    Definitely a Betta again.

    What else do you think will fit in? :)

    Why don't you create two schools in the tank? So get another 10 neons and 10 rummy nose. I think it would look magnificent.
