I made the typical newbie mistake of get 1 of this, 3 of that, a couple of those.... I was afraid to commit to 5 or 6 of something that I may not like or turns out to be a problem. Not knowing any of the species well, it seemed good to "play it safe" and not over commit to any one type. MISTAKE.
So now I have a hodge podge of fish having the problems you'd expect. I need to salvage this, make the fish I have happy, make a tank of fish that is visually appealing, and finally have peace in my tank! Not all these fish are in the same tank yet, (37 gallon) but what I already have that I'm committed to is:
1 male Dwarf Neon Blue Gourami
1 female Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish
1 male Angel Ram
3 Blue Platy
9 Cardinal Tetras
If you have words of advice to fix this mess I would appreciate it! (I know some people have, and like, a tank of one or two of many different species, but for several reasons I don't personally want to do this.)
