I have a new heavly planted 30 Gal tank being filtered with an ehiem 2028 which is a bit of over kill. I was thinking of putting Black phantom tetras in it. Do you think they will be ok since I have a fairly high current in the tank. If not any suggestions?

i like the green swordtails they would be very natural in the tank.
how about some barbs or maybe some larger rainbows.

good luck

Wow, that's a super filtered tank... LOL!

Another fish that likes a lot of current is the glass catfish (Kryptopterus bicirrhis), so that would be an option too.

loaches and rainbows, hands down IMO :)

or go collect some darters, though they prefer cooler water.

:D

www.FranksAquarium.com usually has an excellent selection of riverine loaches, and a really good reputation as good online source for fish.

I went with rumming noses and one peppered cory. I carved out 3x more holes in my spray bar so It slowed the current a bit in the tank. Its still pretty fast but we will see how it goes.

My Oto cats love the current and part of their mating behavior is swimming upstream against the current.

I have a 55gal that has a rena xp3 on it. I use to run it wide open, my rummy nosed tetras and rainbows never had a problem with it.
