Community Fish ideas for 45 planted

Recommended Posts

I have a 45 gal freshwater with mollies, shrimp, snails, clown pleco, and endlers. I have one dwarf gourami and hate the endlers because of the millions of babies. I wanted the mollies to breed but no luck. I have tetras in other tanks. I wanted something fun to watch that will be great in the tank. Ideas? Thinking about focusing on more plants first. 

Hard water, neutral PH, cycled and planted aquarium.

All fish are staying but want something more flashy

Hmm, flashy.   Well entertaining to watch could be something like Zebra Danios who are VERY active, and I think the long finned ones are really pretty.   

As someone else said, Chilis are great for a tiny fish.   Fun to watch.

You could also give Platies a try if you like the livebearers.

I thought about that but was told that they wouldn't have enough room to swim in the 45 gal

Mine is in a 29 gallon. In the 29, and in the wide open 55 he used to live in, he just finds a small spot and parks. He does slowly mosey around the tank a few times per day, but then just goes back to his parking spot.

If you can find them Kogal Blue Eyed Tetras are really cool and something a bit different (google them) Celebes Rainbowfish are also a lot of fun, very hardy, stunning and underrated almost bullet proof dwarf rainbowfish. 

I love the rainbow fish! Almost wanting a tank dedicated to them only

I did have danios and liked them for sure! I think at this point I am moving in Marchish and don't want to have to capture them lol

I'm a big fan of pearl gouramis.  They don't look like much in the stores, but after they get comfortable in a tank and get a little older they're beautiful fish.  I'd recommend getting a small group, preferably with more females than males, but it's difficult to sex them when they're young.

YES! i love gouramis but I have a dwarf one now and I am afraid it will kill any others
