my aunt has a new tank about 78 gallons and she wants to know what she can put in it, currently there is a blue cichlid i think it is some sort of peacock but that is most likely going to be gone in the near future i will try and get a picture of it. It is already setup but now it is time for some fish i was thinking some puntius denisonii, silver hatchetfish and a small colony of otosinclus any other ideas and by the way i havent had the time to check if these are compatible but i know she will have to put some real plants in soon.

 

Thanks from across the pond. Barb man

Oh no not this guy again

Starting point would be to check whether she lives in a hard or soft water area, and then whether you aunt would prefer a few feature fish or a number of smaller fish in groups. 

The fish you suggest prefer softwater and the P. denisonii need a strong current which the other two species won't mind.  However Otocinclus spp. can be delicate and are best added to a mature tank with some algae present so that they can graze on the biofilm. 

Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

In one of my tanks I have Denisonii, Congo Tetras, Rummynose Tetras, several species of loaches, and Cories. It is a very active peaceful tank. Might try some of these fish if you like them!!
