Lovely tank.

This article http://injaf.org/articles-guides/gene ... ing-fish-stocking-guides/ covers the key issues and ought to be helpful for understanding why the answer to your question is not straightforward.

The good news is that you have plenty of time to do your research while preparing the tank for the fish https://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/articles ... hless-cycling-article.htm

It's also worth establishing whether you have soft or hard water so that you can choose fish whose requirements match those of your water. If UK-based, your water supplier will have details in CaCO3 and German degrees hardness on their website for your postcode.
