Got another tank......

So I won a 2.5ft, 25gal tank on eBay. Takes me up to a count of 8 now! lol

Going to keep a trio of paradise fish in it - 1m 2f. Haven't got any gourami's. LOL

May put a shoal of nice barbs in, too. And perhaps move my kuhli loaches over - have a nice Asian tank. :) We shall see what takes my fancy! Depends on the personality of the paradise fish, too.

Still getting my 5x2x2 real soon, which is going to be my SA cichlid tank. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Congratulations on the new tank.

I've kept several different gouramis, though not paradise fish, and have to say that 3 in a 25 isn't a good idea IMO.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

I may just keep a pair. All depends on the personality of the individuals. I've researched a lot, and there is a lot of conflicting info (as always!) so I will use common sense and my own judgement. Like I say, I'm leaning towards a pair, and I'll heavily plant the tank to break up lune of sight and give the female somewhere to hide.

If worst comes to worst, I can split them up - gives me an excuse to make another tub pond! lol
