Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum and my English is not that great, but I'll give it my best go.

I run 3 tanks with guppies, two 60 litres (~16 gallons) and one 180 litres (~47,5 gallons). I think guppies are great, but I would like to add a pairing/harem type of fish to each tank for some variation.

I personally like the blue ram (Mikrogeophagus ramirezi), peacock gudgeon (Tateurndina ocellicauda) and different types of gouramis.

Does anyone here have any experience with the fish species mentioned above in combination with guppies? Other suggestions of species not mentioned are welcome as well.

Thanks.

I’m not sure if it’s just my tank or wether this is normal thing or not

The blue rams and the peacock gudgeon should be fine with guppies. When it comes to gouramis, I'd go for a dwarf gourami species. But in all cases, if you'd like to have offspring from the guppies, be sure to have hiding spots. For all the tank mates, you've mentioned could hunt on those fry.
