    Ill over-research this like I do everything else, but just to get things goingand avoid a new thread,can someone recomend 1 or 2 foods that are a reasonable compromise between cost and quality that I can get on amazon or in stores at petco or petsmart.

    Try supercichlids.com,

    I have used some of most all the brands of food that they sell, and will recommend them all, I think they can send samples of Northfin food for free too.

    They normally send USPS from DE the same day, depending when you order.. I know it's maybe a day or two to get to me here in PA, so would depend on your location.

    they also offer a discount to military folks too.

    Actual last question, I decided it better to start with a non-schooling fish so theres no pressure to add fish fast.

    My pH is 6.9, hardness is "medium" dH around 12. (other fish are 3 Bolivian rams or 2 apistos, 6 golden zebra loaches, 8 skirt tetras, 3 honey gourami or thick lipped gourami).

    Im looking for a slow and hardy fish that is slightly smaller than all the other fish on my list to make the gourami not feel intimidated. Seems like my parameters are too low for pattys can I get some other recommendations
