This forum is certainly a helpful place, so far :P
I am looking to increase the load on my 90 gallon, so I was looking for opinions. I am sort of a Molly and Cory lover, fyi and also interested in breeding.
- 4 female and 2 male Mollies (I just lost two females in the past 10 days, they were the oldest ones I had)
- 3 Australian Rainbows
- 3 Bronze Corys
- 1 (5") Chinese Algae Eater (scardy cat)
- 3 around 6-8" plants (Anacharis, Java Fern, and unknown)
- 2 small Malaysian driftwood and various caves and hiding spots
So, even as the plants grow, I think I have a little bit of room here.
3 of the female Mollies I got 2 weeks ago, and they are doing well but not pregnant looking. I am looking for good turnaround (as in, fry to replace older ones in the long run, with giving some to my LFS if necessary).
I think the Rainbows and I know the Corys like to school, or close to it, but I am not sure about adding anymore Rainbows (they are ok, if that).
I would also like some invertebrates, like ghost shrimp and freshwater clams. The problem I face here is finding them to buy instead of ordering online (any ideas? Eastern PA - 50-100 mile radius?) I checked ThatPetPlace but didn't see them in their list online. This is almost as difficult as finding Bio Spira in my area (which I haven't)
Anyway...I am thinking maybe 3-4 more Corys (hopefully Bronze ones), 1-2 male and 3-5 female Mollies, and then the invertebrates (no more then 3 clams and 5 shrimp). Any thoughts? Too much?
