ok so i wanna stock my new tank with a DIY filter.
german blue ram
Ok so the tank is a 29gal i think long. i currently have a male convict cichlid and a pleco in there. i plan on keeping the pleco but the convict is just temporary (from another tank that was recently restocked due to loss of female convict)
i wanna get the pecock eel and the rams together but i want a mating pair of rams and the peacock eel will eat the babies, so when i was reading some info on rams i heard that they are great tankmates with angels or discus.
could someone give me some info on discus? i know they are hard to keep but i think it would be really cool to have some discus because they are so pretty. what water params do they need? what do they eat? lighting perams? also do they go good with plants because it is gonna be a planted tank. will they live with the nutrience some plants need?
ok so angelfish are pretty cool but does anyone own or know info on them living with rams? i know they both like plants and can live with some chenge in water perams.
i know NOTHING about pencilfish and catfish. i want to get a catfish because i like the idea of having 1 fish in a tank, it seems more personal to me, like i get to know it better and i can say " oh there is my catfish" not "oh thats my tank" also any other fish like that, that are odballs that can be a solo in a tank, preferably carnivores, i like them better. what do pencilfish eat, how big do they get. thats all my questions.
my tank has 2 big caves so keep that in mind when giving me feedback, also it has sand and a lot of rocks.
