Get a German Ram (microgeophagus ramirezi) and some sort of small catfish. :D

Rams have a lot of personality and are very colorful!! I am thinking about getting some myself (just don't tell my hubby :whistle: )
i have a pair of blue rams in my 46 gallon, but these are all good ideas....keep the suggestions coming!

Cockatoo cichlids
Around here those things are expensive!!! But if you can that would be a good choice!! :D
Tell me about it , but I had to have them. I paid $30 for a pair , The male looks like he's wearing a native american head dress , cool to say the least .
and for apistos they are very tolerant of varius water params

Abstract , not push my choices but check out my 70 gal sig .

All these fish are small , hard to find some times . the gudgeons and badis badis were about $8 each and the cockatoos $15 each . They all breed like mad .

You could also check out Nanacara anamola a.k.a golden eye cichlid , also hard to find and costly , but great little fish .

Good luck stocking your tank .
My suggestion would be to get you a few shell dwellers, some gold occelatus, or some lamprologus brevis, er no, you know what, some masked brichardi would be a lot of fun in a tank that size, start out with like 4 brichardis, add a couple of your favorite cleaner cats, and go nuts!

You want us to decide? That's the fun of setting up a new tank!
just looking for ideas...something more interesting than a school of neons and a fleet of corys (no offense - i do like both - but this probably won't be a community tank)....i'd like something different in this tank and being that it is not too large I am looking for my options
