My tank set up at the moment is a 29 gallon (hoping to upgrade to a 55 or 60 by end of this year).
My FM is a baby for the most part (hasnt even got his coloring in yet, he is only about 2 inches). My OB Peacock is pretty mellow, from what I understand her temperment should remain generally like the typical FM, but a tad calmer. She is a good fish.
The more I read about and get advice on the SA Leaf the more I think I will wait til I upgrade my current tank and then get one to put in the 29 gal after I have got a 55 or 60 gal started.
Thanks so much!!!
Any other neat fish you might recommend that is 6" or smaller and would get along with my cichlids?
I like fish that are different, unique, yet very pretty. (Wasnt a fan of the FM, but needed a hardy tank cycling fish and he won my heart with his little personality.)
As far as the algae eaters go, I have always had bad experiances with them dying. And a pleco gets way to big for my tank I have right now. So sadly, I have low expectations for my current algae eaters to survive for too long...and if they do, they will have to get in a bigger tank since these I have can get to like 11 inches!
These are the first algae eaters in this tank, when I say they died on me, that is back many years ago. As this is my first aquarium in like 4 years, and my last one 4 years ago was only a 10 gal with some guppies and an albino frog that ate everyone, lol.
Thanks so much for your insight!!!
