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

    WP_20140904_016.jpg

    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 ) 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.

    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.
