not sure on the preferred paramaters for them, just quickly checked for panda cories (the ones I'm planning on). They like soft water and no more than 7.5. Might not work out.

If you got some IALs or perhaps put a thing of DW in there you could get the cories. But pandas will adjust to any Ph as long as it's not extreme! So, you're fine.

I would suggest harlequins, embers, espeis, endlers or some other tetra/rasbora just don't get a fin nipping one like the skirt tetras. Kuhli loaches would also be great for a bottom swimmer

For plants I'd do java ferns, baccopa monnieri, rotala rotifundolia, anubais, crypts, pygmy chainsword, or dwarf sag. Those all grow GREAT in my tanks, and aren't hard to grow at all!

The best way to help is to be forgiving. People aren't made with a book of ultimate information in their head. We need to inform, not insult; give advice, not lectures; and realize we're all human and we all make mistakes

Thanks!
I can't decide between corys and tetra/rasboras lol

I have some crypt, anubias, java fern and moss, another i can't remember the name of and I just got some purple cabomba and money wort.
This has been a super fun project so far

I love the moneywort (bacopa monnieri)! It grows like a weed in my tanks, but it's great!!!

You could get the pygmy cories and the endlers or embers, those are all smaller fish and won't add much to your bio-load.

Oh, and I love the picture of the betta that you have in your avatar! He's so cute

I am partial to endlers I used to breed them. There are too many options!

Thanks :) that's Elvis, he is a bit shy but loves to say hi.

Rummies are a good choice.

Which one did you end up getting? How many did you bring home?

So you've decided again cories?

I only have 1 cory left in my tank. He does a great job of cleaning the bottom of the tanks of uneaten food. Going to get him some friends next more.

So you only paid for 6 rummies?
