Okay so I have been trying to figure out what to stock my 55 Gallon with it's going to be a month or so before I do and have done some searching and discussing but I think the best way to get some feedback would be a poll so let's see if this works. If you have another idea other than the options in the poll please share below.

Don't forget there should be at least 12 demasoni ( preferable to start with 15-18 ) and that they take up 2 out of 3 species spots for your tank. I also wouldn't house demasoni with afra's.
Yellow labs and red zebras will crossbreed which means keeping and never trading/selling/giving away fry from either.

I voted for other because I like the Yellow Lab and Demasoni setup, but as GTZ suggested the numbers need to be adjusted some. I would shot for 5 or 6 Labs and 12 or so Demasoni. :thumb:

I voted other as well. I like the combo of the Labs and Afra, but for a third species, I'd go with something like Rusties.
