 Saad,  the  chart  is  a  useful  guide  to  overall  fish  compatibility,  but  not  all  species  within  a  group  are  alike.  
 
 eg  it  says  tetras  are  compatible  with  angelfish...  true  in  many  cases  but,  angelfish  will  eat  small  tetras  like  neons  and  some  of  the  larger  tetras  may  nip  at  the  angelfish's  fins.

 i  am  looking  for  compatibility  in  tankmates  for  a  48x18x18  planted  display  tank  
   and  am  taking  the  help  of  such  kind  of  things  and  have  done  some  researchon  the  net  as  well  .  i  would  be  happy  if  u  could  give  me  suggestions  for  a  nicely  planted  tank  with  beautiful  fish  
                                                                                                         thanx  in  advance

 saad,
 
 in  that  case,  we've  got  walking,  talking  compatability  charts  (trevor,  nag,  retro....)    Smile  
 
 but  i  believe  they  would  require  some  basic  info  such  as  the  amount  of  plants  and  types  of  plants,  filteration,  etc...    the  more  info  you  give,  the  easier  it  would  be  to  help....  just  a  thought.

 A  tank  that  large  gives  you  a  lot  of  options...  the  fish  you  keep  in  it  will  really  depend  on  your  final  "vision"...
 
 A  few  possibilities:
 
 1)  50  cardinal  tetras,  25  black  phantom  tetras,  12  otos,  a  trio  (1M+2F)  of  A.  cacatoides  (or  a  pair  of  rams),  6  cories.
 
 2)  6  P.  dennisonii,  24  P.  fasciatus  (melon  barbs),  a  pair  of  pearl  gourami's,  4  SAE's,  6  Mystus  carcio.
 
 They  key  is  to  chose  species  which  will  occupy  different  levels  of  the  tank  and  which  will  not  eat  each  other,  the  plants  or  grow  too  large.

 yes  retro  i  also  believe  in  the  different  quadrant  system  for  fish  i.e  different  living  quarters.  and  now  as  i  have  been  bitten  by  the  planted  tank  bug  i  would  like  to  maintain  a  beautifil  and  active  planted  tank  with  a  combo  of  different  kinds  of  fish.  but  i  am  feeling  it  difficult  to  choose  between  the  different  varieties  of  beautiful  ,speedy  and  handsome  fish  out  here  and  the  ones  which  i  will  die  to  keep  are  .................    
         tetras,rasboras,loaches,gourami,  danios,  rainbows,pleco,cories  and  most  of  the  cichlids  such  as  ram,  krib,  melanchromi,  saverams,oscar,  catfish  etc.....As  some  of  which  impart  an  impressive  color  to  the  tank  and  some  increase  the  activity  in  it  
     
   and  moreover  it  is  going  to  be  a  planted  tank.  so  maybe  i  will  be  very  helpful  to  let  me  know  wether  these  do  well  if    teamed  up,if  not  which  one  suits  the  other  keeping  in  mind  the  plants  
     subject  is  to  help  me  in  selecting  tankmates  for  a  planted  as  well  as  non  planted  tank    with  the  reference  from  the  above  mentioned  varieties
                                                   and  point  is  i  am  content  and  will    stick  to  the  quadrent  system  as  mentioned  above                                  
                                                                                     regards  and  thanx  in  advance

 For  a  planted  tank;  all  cichlids  except  dwarfs,  angelfish,  discus  and  festivums  are  out.  And  with  these  fish,  you  are  better  off  restricting  yourself  to  one  or  two  species  in  total.
 
 With  all  the  other  fish,  there  is  so  much  variation  that  it  is  next  to  impossible  to  make  general  recommendations.  What  would  be  better  is  if  you  asked  around  at  your  LFS's  and  compiled  a  list  of  fishes  readily  available  to  you.  We  can  then  pick  a  mix  out  of  those  that  fit  your  tank.

 saadali,
 
 please  note:  MOST  cichlids  don't  belong  in  planted  tanks    cichlids  have  a  predisposition  to  rearranging  their  environment  to  suit  themselves.    this  involves  moving  things  around  and  digging  up  everything....    in  a  planted  setup,  your  plants  will  be  floating  with  a  few  parts  missing  at  best.
 
 there  are  a  few  exceptions  like  retro  said,  notably  angels.

 No  iridescent  sharks.  They  are  not  aquarium  fish.  Period.
 Bala  sharks  grow  to  about  a  foot  long,  prefer  low  light.  Not  really  the  best  fish  for  a  planted  tank.
 Red  tailed  sharks  are  territorial.  Do  not  keep  more  than  1/tank  and  be  prepared  to  lose  other  bottom  dwellers.
 Most  of  the  barbs  listed  are  fin  nippers,  if  you  get  them  do  not  keep  any  long  finned  fish  with  them.
 Common  plecos  will  also  grow  to  over  a  foot  long  in  a  short  period  of  time.  Not  for  planted  tanks.
 Read  my  previous  post  re  cichlids.
 
 A  couple  of  fish  lists  based  on  your  options  would  be:
 
 a)  25  Cardinal  tetras,  25  rummy  nose  tetras,  6  angelfish,  6  platies,  10  cories,    pair  of  rams.
 
 b)  15  tiger  barbs,  15  rosy  barbs,  6  Pakistani  loaches,  6  platies,  pair  of  kribs
 
 c)  6  P.  dennisonii,  15  zebra  danios,  15  serpae  tetras,  4  pearl  gouramies,  4  paradise  fish,  6  loaches.
