Colourful Mid To Top Level Fish
Posted 14 November 2008 - 03:02 PM
We originally chose Denisons Barbs as our specimen fish to add colour but to be honest they have not done well and we have gone from 6 to 3 and probaly soon to be 2.(will be adressing this in emergency section).
Our question is what shall we replace them with. Most of our fish are lower to mid level fish and the tank seems empty. We regularly test water(which is always normal) and do weekly 30% water changes. Our water is alkaline and hard, nitrates from tap15-20. It is a planted tank.
Colour is very important and prefer no aggression.
We wondered about
1. Red rainbow fish
2. Angels-which has nice colour (if any)
3. Rainbow cichlid (like german rams but they prefer soft ,acidic water)
Any other ideas ?
I keep looking at tropical fish finder but unless you know what you are looking for it isn't that helpful.

what else do you have in the tank ?? you can get some nicely coloured killfish. Angels are nice loads of varation in them too ended up with 5 for my center piece 2 koi, 1 white with black markings (blusher) and 2 platinium

not sure about the angels now due to the pearl gouramis. killies will do well with your mollies and platies. Have a look in the killfish forum (in livebearers)
