hi sugarcookie.

here are my sugesions

Endlers livebearer ( have light green orange yellow and the ocasional while tinge)

Cilestial pearl danio ( orage fins with a blue body and lost of gold dots on the body) also called micro rasbora.

I would suggest getting 3 more bloodfin tetras.

I think you should get some hinding places like driftwood,rocks and oraments.

You also could get some opeline gouramies or dwarfs ( get 2 females and 1 male or 1 female and 1 male).

You also could get some julii corys. ( bottom feeders)


Hope this helps

Also do you have aquarium salt in your tanks.

Sorry,
I forgot to menation I have a big sunken boat with alot of openings, also I have a medium size tree trunk with holds in it.

About the Salt....Yes I have API aq. salt but I haven't put any in the tank, the only time I have used the salt was not long ago, I used it to do treatment for Ick. Should I use the aq. salt regular in my tank, how ofter & how much for a 55 gallon? Why do I need the salt?

You have helped SO MUCH.... (I'm a newbie & I don't know much, but I'm learning with everybody's help.

Thanks Again,
Sugarcookie
