    So I ended up selling majority of my endlers (my nieces are going to end up taking the rest)and all of my espies today, so I could empty out some space in my tank, for some different schoolers. Some of my ideas are adding 4 cories, but possibly adding some julis to go with my panda cories, or adding more pandas, and a school of rummy nose, or cardinals, or cherry barbs, and a male honey gourami. I currently have left 4 panda corys, a female honey gourami, amano shrimp, and ghost shrimp. Would appreciate other suggestions, I don't want fin nippers or live bearers.

    I have a 20 high gallon

    I'd add more panda cories. They should be in a group larger than 4, 6 is minimum but 5 is fine. With schoolers, they should be in groups of 6+ of their own species.

    For the school, I'd do cherry barbs.

    Will they be good with my honey gourami, I'm thinking of doing 6 of the cherry barbs, and 6 to 8 pandas, and possibly adding a few more otos since I currently only have one.

    Yes they should be fine with the honey gourami.

    So I went to fish 4 u with the intention of getting some cherry barbs, but saw these guys and just fell in love with them. Who can guess what they are?

    I ended up with an Ember on accident from F4U once. It got in the bag with my CPD's. I should have been grateful for the random free fish, but when I realized he was in the bag, I was already at home, and didn't want to put him in with bigger fish, so I had ONE little Tetra swimming with my CPD's for years. Kind of annoying when you have a nice, matching tank, but not annoying enough for me to bag him up and drive him back down there. *lol*

    I love my embers they are really fun to watch together, I would highly suggest getting more if you have room for them. I want to get 4 more so I have ten of them, but have to wait until my nieces come and get the rest of my endlers, and/or move them to my new tank.

    I just think they're kind of... boring?? I guess I like flashier coloring? But I'm looking online, and the fish I'm seeing listed as "ember tetras" are not the same as what I had. Mine was a green something. Green eye? Green ember? Green..... something?? Hmmm. But while googling, trying to find the name of what I had, I found these fish listed as Tiger Danio, Micro Tiger Rasbora, Emerald Dwarf Rasbora... and isn't THAT just the cutest thing ever! Now I have another fish I want.... Sheesh. lol

    If you ask fish 4 u they will order certain fish for you sometimes? That's how I got my female honey gourami. I love the look of the emerald dwarf rasbora, almost got some a few times.

    I was going to ask them about LF White Clouds. I love them, but since it's winter, overnight shipping on them costs 30 bucks. Youch! If they could get some in for me, maybe I could save on that shipping cost.

    They get new fish in usually Wednessday, or Thursday.

    If you ask them about a certain fish and don't have it they will most likely order it. If they don't have some another great lfs is Pets and Such, they are the only other place I buy fish from.
