Long time reader; first time poster.
(I haven't set aquariums up in my profile just yet, no)
My biggest tank, a 45 gallon bowfront is getting pretty mixed in the way of species. So I want to get a specific opinion from you guys on what I should do to complete it.
It's a mature tank.
I have 2 platys, 2 big black skirt tetras, 3 ottos, 3 african dwarf frogs, 8 male guppies (females are in another tank as this is generation 8 now), 1 juvenile angel, 1 juvenile blood parrot (not dyed). And I will be getting a german blue ram once I find some healthy ones at a LFS.
I am concerned that my angel and maybe even the parrot will dine on some guppies when they reach full size. I'm hoping that introducing them early will reduce the chance of this, but I have places for the guppies to go if it happens.
There was some aggression from the tetras towards the angel for the first day, but they got over that very quickly.
I'm looking for a good bottom dweller that won't bother the ADFs. I would like a clown loach but they get too big for my tank. Perhaps a RTBS?
What do you guys think? What can you suggest to complete this set up? Will I experience any compatibility issues?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
