I have a new fifteen gallon column aquarium that is set up and running. I'm going to stock it with fish next weekend, just to make sure that the tank is functioning properly. My current plan is to get 3 dwarf gouramis and 5 guppies. Am I over stocking? Are these good choices for my tank? The pH is at about eight, and I know that I need to lower it to abut seven. And the ammonia is at less than .02, so I think that I'm good on that. Here is a pic of the tank:
I know that I'll need some hanging plants and some taller plants, but I'll get those at the same time that I get the fish. What do you guys think?
