    No one can recommend fish for you to get if they don't know what size tank you have. For all we know, you could have a 2 gallon tank.

    Yeah, if you're not going to give us an idea of what size tank...I'd recommend a betta and nothing else with it.

    As for general recommendations...your fish should reflect what you want to see. I've found that my tanks are VERY relaxing after a stressful day. Some people want active fish, some people want colorful fish, some people want deadly fish, some people want big fish, small fish, red fish, blue fish.... Your fish should be what YOU want them to be, specifically as it relates to your tank size.

    -5-6 neons
    -1 peacock eel

    i could argue the stocking on those tanks: the 20 gallon the red tailed would probably harass the guppies and neons, and in the 35 the peacock eel would probably eat the neons but anyways its all a matter of preference dont get what we want you to get what appeals to you. -tl

    Dude 412 tho tank stocking are both pretty bad you shouldnt recommand them. A Parrot cichlid arnt very peaceful fish all they are is a dimented midas pretty much. As redtails get older they get mor agressive, mine chases my tiger barbs around alot

    dude are u dissing jellybean fish u have dempseys they look jus look like big giant jellybean fish that are black in coloration geez and imo there the best i dont wanna fight over this but your rite the eel will kill the tetras and sometimes redtails are mean

    one full grown parrot needs 42g. for only one. saying that 1 can go in a 35g with other fish, is wrong. they get to be 8" and they would swallow a neon at a small size. and clown loaches get to be around 8" too.
