Suitable Fish

The smaller cryptocorynes should be kept free from algae and debris, so small algae-eaters, such as Otocinclus spp., and scavengers, such as Corydoras spp., are fine. All the plants used here are quite hardy, so slightly boisterous fish can be added, such as barbs and danios. These fish will also appreciate the open swimming space in the center of the aquarium. Barbs, including the tiger barb (Puntius tetrazona), golden barb (P. sachsi), rosy barb (P. conchonius), black ruby barb (P. nigrofasciatus), and cherry barb (P. titteya), are all suitable.
