Oh okay, the ornament thing makes sense, Does sand affect the water, or is it just like gravel? I think I'm gonna get some java ferns and other low light plants now.
Would this be a good stocking plan :
2 dwarf gouramis as my center piece
5 or 6 tetras
1 oto for the algae
2 or 3 cories to clean the ground, plus they look RAD
do I have any more room for some guppies or other small fish?\
And with my 4 Zebra Danios, if they can't fit in my tank with these fish I listed above, my friend said he could put them in his 50 gallon tank. _________________ -Joey, aka, AsianSensation, you know it
They're kinda hard to find, but I have a dwarf (clown, many other names) pleco. I feed him algae pellets plenty, and he has not grown more than 3 inches or so. They can be a little shy, but they're super neat if you want a slightly beefier fish. I've never been a fan of snails or corries.

I noticed the comment about gouramis eating ghost shrimp??, I have owned various types of gouramis (gold, blue, powder blue, kissing, dwarf and honey) none of which had tried eating or ate any of my ghost shrimp. The shrimps have been fine and do great cleanup and are fun to watch but never do my gouramis mess with them at all. The biggest and most aggressive gourami I had was my gold gourami. Will gourami's eat the ghost shrimp??? . Since October the shrimps have been great and are still doing good alive.
1 Dwarf Gourami (Cobalt Blue) as a centerpiece
5-8 Tetras as schooling
2 Panda or Pygmy Cories
This is going to be a good looking tank. If I were you, I'd choose either the otos OR the cories, and up the numbers to 3 or 4 instead of 2. Both species are more active and sociable when kept in larger numbers. I haven't personally kept otos, so I can't say anything against them, but I'd heartily recommend cories. They're cute and fun and hardy, though I've read that the dwarves are a little more sensitive to water conditions than the larger ones.
Don't add the platies or anything else though. That stocking plan fills up your tank. Not to mention platies poop a lot.
