please read the articles on this site regarding cycling, new tanks, ect.... before getting fish...
You have room for top- middle- bottom
you do something along the lines of
6 hatchet fish for the top- or danios, or white clouds
10 glowlights tetras in the middle
8-10 smaller cories - like pandas, for the bottom

Thank you for the reply...
This tank is cycled now as I will be moving some fish to a new tank. But thanks for the link as I know it is very important
Anyone else have a stocking suggestion?

To help with stocking- you could try this stocking calculator.... play around with difft combinations of fish... but it wont tell you TOP, MID, Bottom but you can ind that info here in profiles
You could also think about putting a centerpiece fish or to in that tank... something difft, that will stand out...
like a single or pair of fish... thats going to ctach your eye
a single or a pair of
angels,pearl gouramis, ect....

Thanks for the reply's
2 angel fish
2 rams for the bottom
plus 10 to 12 glow lights
What do you think?

That sounds like a plan to me!!!!
There are lots of options, trick is to pick something YOUR going to like. Just make sure to provide some "clear and defined" territories for the angels, rams, unless you dont get a pair.... Id go with 2 females unless you want babies!!!

Small Fry with Ketchup
That does sound like a good plan, since it's a tall tank keep the stocking light.
I'd stock the tetras first, then when buying your angels make sure you get them young, they may be less likely to make a snack of the tetras. Neons and cards tend to get turned to lunch fairly quick with large enough angels, glowlights may stand a fighting chance if they're closer to their adult size.
Unless you have your heart set on the rams, you might want to consider a small school of small cories. IMO they'd be better at cleaning up any scraps on the bottom. I suggest small cories because of the height of the tank.
