40 Gallon Grow-Out Tank


Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m new to forums and I just want to have a general discussion about my 40 gallon breeder

currently I have 5 serape tetras, 3 blood fin tetras, 4 Colombian tetras, 2 Madagascar rainbows, 4 rummynose tetras, 11 gold pencil fish  4 angels, 3 roseline sharks, about 12 cories, and a few loaches and a few bristle nose pleco 

I have a 55 gallon and a 75 gallon I’m looking for ideas to stock them with my current fish

*in the 55 I have 2 convict cichlids

I’m a big fan of this type of “formula” for most tank setups...

A “large” number of small schooling fish (White Cloud Mountain Minnows or Celestial Pearl Danios are among my favorites)

 A small number of intermediate types (5 or 6 Tetras or non-agressive Barbs - Red Barbs or Gold Barbs for ex.)

A couple of larger “show-type” fish (Angels or Gouramis for example, or anything other you prefer)

I would put the angels and the Bristlenose in the 55 and the rest in the 75. An idea is to add apistogramma in the 75

I do have an appisto and a Bolivian ram also. Sorry I forgot to type it. Here’s a picture of my 40 gallon currently excluding my rose lines
