I definitely agree. While not all Corydoras prefer and originate from cooler temperatures. That guideline should be followed with the ones that do originate form cooler waters

I like this species of rasbora

Saw some in a shop one time and they were really pretty. Also looks like captive bred ones could deal with your water parameters and temperature.

So no to Cherry barbs? I do like them!

I sans stay away from tetras that are super inbred, I read they often die within a year from Tetra disease is it?

I wouldn't be able to do cories as I have gravel and I refuse to have them in anything but sand.

I think they cherry barbs could handle it. They are pretty hardy, and 78F is pretty much the middle range for them.

Awesome!, I will look into getting some. Hopefully find some females also. Shouldn't they ne kept in a ratio? I thought I heard that somewhere, correct me if I am wrong though.

I would get rummynoses but they probably enjoy more current then what the tank has to offer.
