As a result of my bad stocking and getting ich I lost over half my stock. So I've decided to create a back up plan. In the event that I lose all my stock to whatever, hopefully that won't happen, I am considering a native fish tank.
AquaAdvisor says I can keep 6 Bluegills in my 75 gallon with a canister rated for 100 gallons. Tho, I take their recommendations lightly until I see that they're correct.
I'd be having my play sand substrate.
The tank may possibly be completely planted then. If not, half planted.
The lake where I'll be getting them is literally next door. I have no problem going there and getting gallon jugs of the natural water if necessary.
Anyone who has experience with these fish. Please share! Thanks!
