 Hi  Guys,
 
 I  recently  setup  a  30g  planted  tank  and  it’s  in  the  second  week  of  cycling.
 Need  to  decide  which  fish  to  keep.
 I  already  have  a  pair  of  golden  rams  which  I  plan  to  keep  in  this  tank.
 Which  other  fish  could  i  keep  along  with  my  ram  pair?
 One  thought  I  had  was  neon  tetras,  rummy  nose  tetra  and  may  be  some  algae  eater.
 Will  the  SAE  grow  too  large  for  a  30g?

 Hi  Saurabh3720,
 
 Ideally  for  a  planted  tank  your  first  option  would  be  schooling  tetras,  rasboras  and/  or  Rainbow  varieties  of  fish.  Common  and  popular  ones  are  like  what  you  listed.  Additionally,  you  can  introduce  some  shrimps  like  Cherry  red,  etc.  But  with  rams  now,  I  am  not  sure  having  shrimps  would  be  a  good  idea.  If  you  are  about  to  select  the  fishes  based  on  the  pair  of  Ram  you  have,  then  I  would  suggest  fellow  hobbyists  who  have  kept  a  Ram  before  to   comment.  If  the  requirement  is  based  on  a  planted  tank,  I  would  suggest  the  list  given  in  the  first  line.

 My  golden  rams  used  to  chase  every  other  schoolers!!  but  luckily  they  will  not  be  able  to  create  much  damage.  Go  for  other  schoolers,  it  will  be  just  fine.

 For  a  planted  tank  with  schooling  tetras  otocinclus  will  be  a  very  good  option,  if  you  can  get  them.  Get  at  least  6  as  they  are  schooling  and  social  fish.  But  you  must  make  sure  that  there  is  sufficient  algae  in  your  tank.  Or  else  you  have  to  feed  them  blanched  veggies  like  zucchini,  spinach  etc  or  provide  good  quality  algae  wafers.  I  prefer  Hikari.
