30g

what cichlids would you put in a 30g other than blue rams? possibly, though not necessarily ones that if kept as a pair might breed, and ones that would live in harmony with a bunch of cories. i have done some searches but some very conflicting advice has arisen

30g's julie is a bit wee for Cics, try Cockatoo's, but I would maybe suggest getting rid of the Corys

ahh ok then. it was just a thought as i got a 30g last night and have been dreaming up what i would put in it. i kinda fancied some cics, but theres no way id get rid of the cories, so no cics it is. i can live without cics, i cannot live without cories :P

Sorry, misread your statement. Flametails are pretty peaceful.

Kribs can get nippy. I was looking at adding them to my angelfish tank but decided against it. GBR and FT Apistos are pretty mello. There are a number of members in the Geophagus family that are also pretty mello.

thanks for all the info guys. well so far it looks like no cics for me. like i said no blue rams because ive had problems with them before (sad thoguh cause theyre lovely fish) and ive never seen any flametails about, though if i did see them id consider it.

when ive got it set up and cycling ill do another wee post with my latest thoughts for stocking

thanks
