75 gallon stocking


Registered Member
My tank has been up and running for a little over a year we currently have
1 x Koi Angelfish
6 x Sunburst Platy
8 x Peppered Cory
8 x Silver Hatchet

I was wondering if I could add
6 x Boesemans Rainbowfish
8 x Cherry Barb
1 x Honey Dwarf Gourami

I don't want to overload my tank or stress out my fish, it just looks a little empty and needs some color.

Boesemans Rainbowfish can grow to over 4-5 inches long. I would not mix them with your current stock. Depending on the size of the Angelfish, I may not add Cherry Barbs. Maybe a large school of Harlequins?

Yeah, that sounds like too many fish & angels may pick on the small gourami. Cherry barbs might work well. You also need to have a plan for platy fry if they survive.
