Hi all,

I am thinking about stocking my tank.
It's been stable for over a week now, about 6 weeks into a cycle.

ammonia - 0
nitrite - 0
ph - stabilised at 7
kh -3-4
nitrate - around 5-7

I had five platy's - 4 females and one male.
The male was pretty active - haha and
I decided to return him rather than be over-run with fry.
After, I returned a female platy who was bullying the other fish.

Now, it's fairly peaceful with three females and 3, 2 week old fry in a hatchery.

I was thinking of stocking like this:

3 platy's and 3 fry (which i have)
4 corydoras
6 neon tertra's
and one dwarf gourami

I have a 110 l (approx) tank with filtration for about 300-400 litre tank.

would this in your opinion, make for a peaceful aquarium?

With the filter size you have, you could double the number of tetras. Put a few plants in as the corrys love to hide out.

As Paulv said you could up the number of Tetra's and I would go for Cardinals instead of Neons,mainly because they are hardier than the Neons..........Dwarf Gourami's I have always found in the past to little sly fin nippers,so maybe a nice Angel Scalare?.....Some beauties around the shops at the moment.

Maybe up the corys to 6. It's nicer when they have a little shoal.
Just remember not to add all these at once.
Spread out the new additions over a few weeks.
