Is it possible for my lonely male cloud white minnow to get along with other ZDS? He's about a year and half and gets along with my two male dwarf gourami pretty good and 7x Kuhili loaches & inverts. My tank is 20 gallon.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!!!!!!
But, he would appreciate his own kind soo
much more! They are extremely common, are you sure your nearby store can't order them from you?
If you must, you can try the danios, he may or may not school with them, out of desperation he probably will. Small fish like this feel safest in groups, and if he has no other choice he will join the danio group if they let him.
