    I have my heart set on the African butterfly fish, and I don't know which fish to put with it. I have a 36 gallon tank with floating plants, roots and rocks. Would German blue rams or keyhole chiclids work? If not, would giant danios or some other mid swimming fish work?

    Stick with something that's going to spend as much time as possible on the bottom of the tank. ABF are way too aggressive to share space and 36 gallons isn't a big enough footprint to allow anything else a safe area to live. ABF are also hyper sensitive to movement so something docile and uninteresting to it will be the safest bet. Like large cories or maybe loaches
