Stocking a 55 Gallon


Recommended Posts

I am currently setting up a 55 gallon, and am unsure of how many of each fish I should get.  Ideally I would like to have:

Angelfish (I LOVE angels)

Harlequin Rasboras 

Some species of Corydora (I'm open to suggestions)

I already have a bristlenose Pleco that I'd like to go in there as well if possible.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Before we can give stocking ideas, we need filtration.

Sponge filters would be best for that size tank, one of a larger size, I like to run two in my 60gallon tanks.

1-3 angels would be fine depending on the type. Remember angles can get aggressive.

Harlequin rasboras at least 6.

Corys really depend on what you want. If you want some larger species you could go with some smaller Brochis like Emeralds, or if you want colour you could go with Sterbai, Panda, Bronze/Albinos and Venezuelans 

Be careful with the small species like pygmies and Hastatus as angles can eat them
