Hello, this is my first post, I have a 55 gallon planted tank with a cascade 700 filter and also a tetra 10-30 filter, it is an established tank. My question is what can I put in this tank with 1 electric blue acara. I have 1 bnp in it now, I would like to go with a school of fish, I thought rainbows but I've read the temps would not match, something with some color would be nice and peaceful is a plus, thank you

Welcome! BNP? Is that a bristle nose or bushy nose pleco? What temp is your tank? If you just have the 1 acara there are several fish that might be ok...Most rainbows get pretty big, I've only kept dwarf neon rainbows (meh). Diamond tetras?

A pic might help & we love to see!

It's a bristle nose, usually keep my tank around 78

Right now I am redoing my tank, waiting on my substrate to get delivered and soaking a nice piece of driftwood
