65 gallon stocking ideas


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all,

I would love some thoughts on additional fish for my tank. Thanks in advance! 

I have an established 65 gallon tank, Ph 7.4, heavily planted, fluval 407, with 30% water changes every other week. 

Current stock (lost some fish a while back when the city, unbeknownst to me, dumped a ton of chlorine in the water so that’s why some of these groupings are a off). 

Neon Rainbow 2

Bosemani Rainbow 3

Turquoise 1 

Julii Cory 5

Rummy nose tetra 9 (spawning, but the big guys eat them up) 

Honey gourami 1 

Bristlenose pleco - 2 

Variety of nerite and mystery snails 12


I was thinking of adding 6 more rummy nose tetras and then perhaps another larger fish or two - Denison barb, rams, etc. 


I welcome any ideas you have on a good group of schooling fish or another centerpiece piece / pair of fish.

If it was my tank I'd add to the existing groups of fish instead of adding new types, especially the rainbowfish and honey gourami, but it wouldn't hurt to add a few more of the corydorus trillineatus (usually sold as julii, but really aren't, so I assume that's what you have).
