      Pearl gouramis, two males and six females
      Espei rasboras, shoal of 40. They stay smaller than harlequins and have a lovely copper sheen
      Kuhli loaches again, group of 40. Lots of hidey holes and they'll be as happy as anything. Very amusing to watch when it's dinner time.

    Pardon me for correcting you Joey. Been a fan of yours for quite sometime. For that red asian arowana. The pronounciation for Merlion is not Mer-Leon but Mer-Lion. Like MERmaid and LION.
    The name and breed derives from my country (correct me if I'm wrong, but I know the name definitely is). We have a top breeding farms specially for Arowana here. In fact our reservoirs and other watch catchment areas do have arowana for catch (but of cause the basic types) though illegal. In fact, the name Merlion is also a mascot/symbol of my country. So yeah. I hope u do not take this negatively. I just want to help.

    Whatever you do, You need a Betta. Betta keepers are such a large part of fish keeping community, and i’m not talking about the betta keepers who keep it in a .5 gallon bowl without filtration or a heater. i’m talking about the large Betta community of betta keepers who ensure the best for their betta. Agression might be an issue so it’s probably not best to keep one in the asian tank, but perhaps (do your research first) a sorority if you support that, and get a 10-15 gallon for a male betta, which would pair fine with a school of rasbora and maybe even some corydora.
