So.. I may be going off the beaten path with this post in regard to topic, but I have decided to stock this tank (assuming it doesn't leak) with "Payara" Hydrolycus scomberoides
(More comminly known as Vampire Tetra or Saber-Tooth Tetra). Their locality is the Amazon Basin primarily found in Venezuela.
Most people don't know that there are two different species of this fish or how to tell the difference.. Hydrolycus Scomberoides
and Hydrolycus Armatus
Armatus can reach about 3' long, while Scombs will not exceed 12" in the home aquarium. Armatus don't do good in groups. Scombs do good in groups..
I am getting a few Scombs.. Artamus are too hard to find and expensive and the will outgrow my width quickly.
In order to help keep my Payara happy, it has been advised to me to get a powerhead for current.
So I picked up this Hydor unit today and am testing in in my 75g.. Its absolutly SILENT and pushes water at 850 gpm. It was a bit expensive but I am pumped, because this will drastically improve the swimming room in this 84g tank.. kind of like a little river.
I am verry happy to endorse this product.
Anywho.. what do you guys think about this idea? ANY crital feedback is welcomed!!!
