Hi and thanks for the help, becuase I am new in this world from February

WP_20140904_016.jpgImage Enlarger

This is my aquarium, sorry it has bad quality, my cam is very bad hehehe

The aquarium has 100x50x40 lcm = 200 litres. ph 7,kh 3, gh 12, NO2 and NO3 0 mg/L.

It has cyptocorines sp., Vallisneria sp., Lemma minor and Microsorum sp.

I need to decide what fishes species out into the aquarium.

 

I have done this selection:

 

Down
Pangio khuli x4
Protomyzon Pachychilus (Locha panda) x4
Botia Macracanthus (Clowm Botia) x2

Down and middle
Badis badis (colour blue) or Scarlet Badis (red colour [I prefer blue because is a different colour) x1 male x 2 female

Middle and Up
Trichopsis Leeri (Pearl Gurami) x1 male x2 female
Colisa lalia (Dwarf Gurami enano) x1 macho x2 hembras
Trichopsis Trichopterus (Marble or Gold or Bluel [I prefer Gold or Blue]) x1 male x2 female

 

I need help to decide better combination with better colours and I want that all aquarium zones have fishes swimming.

 

Sorry for my english and thanks a lot for your help.

In all honesty, I'd say that combination of fishes is highly unsuitable for your set-up. Try reading the individual profiles for them on this site for care requirements. The Chromobotia, in particular, grows far too large.

Cake or death?

I completely agree with Matt.

It's an attractive display, but I'll agree that the selection of fish needs to be revised. The Trichopodus Gouramis IMO also get too large for a 1m aquarium, and can be quite aggressive. Dwarf or Honey Gouramis should be fine, or a small group of one of the croaking gourami species.
