laritheloud Posted February 6, 2022 Share Posted February 6, 2022 Hey everyone! Because I'll be moving my 6 remaining pseudomugil signifers to my 20 gallon tank, I'm looking into getting either another schooling fish for the 50 gallon or skipping the schoolers altogether and trying some more peaceful cichlids (blue acaras, festivums, or keyholes). My current permanent inhabitants are a group of 4 thicklipped gouramis, a group of 4 synodontis lucipinnis, and a bunch of grown/baby rabbit snails. I have a red bristlenose in quarantine that'll go in next, and that's it for now. I know barbs in general have the reputation of being fin nippers, and I'm reading conflicting information over whether black rubies will be okay with gouramis in a big enough school (I was thinking 8 to 10 of them). What do you think? Any alternative suggestions? I'm having great difficulty feeling decisive about it, since I know cichlids especially can live a long time and I want to make the "right" decision. It doesn't help that my daughter and son have been sick with a cold all week and it's giving me a bit of cabin fever. 🤣 Thanks for all your help!
