Hi everyone, I have a 25 gallon hexagon tank and was wondering if anyone has any stocking ideas. I have a 10 gallon currently with 6 neon tetra in it. I want the neon tetra I have to be able to go in there with the other fish. I want the fish to be hardy and stay small so I can have larger schools of them. Any ideas are appreciated. Just for reference, my tap water is really soft and it has a neutral pH. Thanks in advance.

Glow light tetra are nice looking, I have them with my neon and ember tetras. They look nice together with neon.

Never mind, I just researched and found out. Is there any bottom dwellers or top dwellers you know of. I’m not sure if Cory cats would work because they like more swimming room, but Pygmy cities might. But for top dwellers, I don’t know if any killifish from South America. Any ideas?

You have a number of options with soft water Amazonian fish, but the first question is what are the tank dimensions?

We always ask for dimensions as tanks can be shallow and long or tall and thin and this affects the type of fish which can be kept - fast swimmers are more suited to shallow long tanks, for example. Hexagonal tanks tend to be the tall thin type, but we need to make sure.
