I'm sure there is a thread already for something like this...but everyone's situation is different so here's mine:
I have a 55 gallon with 2 (most likely male) Jack Dempseys, 1 Blood Parrot and 1 Hi-Fin Spotted Plecostomus. I have a sand substrate, and lots of hiding spots/territories. They have been in the tank since May/June and are growing rapidly. I'm just disappointed because they spook way easily and are always hiding.
At one point I tried adding rosy barbs as dither fish but they all died. I was thinking of trying again with Zebra Danios, because the JDs are both pretty young still and I don't think they'll be able to fit them in their mouths.
Any suggestions? I have soft water, around 25GH and my pH is around 8, temp kept between 78 & 80 degrees F.
