But I can't leave the filters running like that because they cause way to much flow. I could probally seal it... if I could find some aquarium safe sealant. But with the curing time, and such.. and me not being 100% how to do it.. I'd end up with another room full of water
... Any suggestion guys?!
Dynamics of fishes moved from 95 gallon to much smaller tank can change rapidly. The fact that you have noted that fish have never behaved as is their nature to do ,holds little meaning to myself nor should it for others contemplating similar stocking scheme.
I realize this current stocking is not what you intended ,but am always mindful that others read these posts as well and that this combination of fish in smaller tanks is not likely to work.Fishes such as Blue gourami ,are often territorial with other gourami, Ditto for Angelfish as they mature.Serpae tetras WILL nip the fins of fishes such as fancy guppies and or platy's and Adult Angel fish will eat young guppies or platy's and will also become territorial to intolerant of other Angelfish and or gourami as they reach adult size.
Most of the fishes we buy are juveniles and as such, they may get along for some time in large enough tanks but when placed in smaller enviornment, stress from crowded conditions will take its toll . Not a question of if,, But when.
Would call around to local glass companies and perhaps inquire as to whether they would be willing to replace the cracked glass were it me.
