    You can also try a few mollies and platties to start. They are very hardy fish and it takes alot to kill them. Once your tank has been set up for a month of so with no problems with ammonia, then you can move on to some glow fish. You don't want any sharks, puffers or catfish in there. Sharks and catfish will outgrow the tank and will eat anything that will fit in its mouth. The puffer will just eat the fins off of your other fish. I hope this helps and goodluck

    It will be when it gets older and it will quickly outgrow the tank.

    Lol, I have a Rainbow in my 30 right now. It was the boss until we got an Oscar, then the oscar outgrew and the Rainbow took over again.

    definately dont get a bristlenose. At least from my experience. Even though this is a pleco species that stays on the smaller slide. Less than 5" normally. They are messy fish and have a tendency to poop everywhere. (im not kidding)

    one of the best fish ive kept is a paradise fish. nice colours, and i kept it in a 10 gallon tank!
    Kribensis are also a nice community, cichlids. can be aggressive when breeding but other than that they are pretty good fish.

    Standard water changes fix the poop issues..

    They are a great utility fish and rather fun to watch at times..

    The 40 Gallon beside me here is nothing but Ancistrus Plecos aside from a couple Celestial Danios and Cherry Shrimp.. Only tank in the house that doesn't have at least 1 ancistrus is my salt...

    Otocinclus are great little algae eaters for small fw tanks.
