I have a pleco, 2 platys, rainbow shark, and 2 gourami. I am thinking about getting rid of 1 gourami and would like to get another fish. What are some other good fish to add to my tank. I have a 30 gallon tank.

Why do you want to get rid of a gourami? What type are they?

There are SO many fish you could add. Maybe look around the galley until you find some fish you like, then come back with some ideas, and we can let you know if they will work.

I have a plecostumus, 2 kissing gouramis that fight a lot, 2 planties, and a redfin shark. I was considering getting rid of 1 gourami becasue of how they fight and replace it with a new fish or 2. Just wanted some ideas of some fish that would get along with the fish I already have. Sorry, should have been more specific. I have a 30 gallon tank.

What do you plan on doing with the fish you want to "get rid of"?

I would suggest maybe a small school of tetras?

I definitely would encourage you to find a more suitable home for one of the gouramis if you are having aggression issues between them.

Also, if it were me, I would find a better home for the Red Tailed shark as well. They get too large for a 30 gallon, IMO.

Finally, the pleco might become an issue for your tank as well. Common plecos reach great sizes, far too large for a 3p0 gallon. Additionally, the produce a lot of waste which will most likely cause water quality issues.
