125 G stocking ideas
Hi everyone! sorry about this, i know there ar tons of threads already asking for stocking tips, but this tank is huge. originally i bought it for my guppy breeding empire, but obviously 125 gallons of guppies is boring after a while! what i really want is to sell my guppies, and restart my tank. I would love some big fish. FRESHWATER!!! NOT BRACKISH!!! ive been looking for a while but the only ones i can find are agressive, or will get too big for the tank.
I want to know if there are any ant least semi docile, larger fish that i can have in my tank? if not then I guess ill just get hoards of small wish, but what would be best? btw, i love oddballs
The only things that come to mind are discus, angels, and dwarf cichlids. These aren't huge but definitely larger than guppies. You also have the option of doing a combined set up with a tank that large some out of the water and some in which opens up another set of options.
so like a paludarium?
i thought about that, but the only critters i can think of that would use the land are frogs and fiddler crabs. what other things would you suggest? what kind of fish?
Other than those only turtles come to mind. I have no idea what it is called.
yes a paludarium, u can do salamanders, turtles, aquatic frogs, some lizards/snakes or mudskippers (brackish). What do you mean by non agressive? if u set up the tank with a bunch of tall rocks, you could add a bunch of frontosas and they wont attack each other. Giant gourami, although that could get to big. Pictus catfish, and many other catfish like shovelnoses. Thats all i can think of off the top of my head, but there are many more
Pearl Gouramis!!! Big, graceful swimmers that would appreciate spreading their fins out in such a large tank. Vey docile as far as Gouramis go, just keep at least 2 females per male. You can also add Dwarf or Honey Gouramis to that tank as they get along well with the Pearl G's. A few pairs of Cherry Barbs would add some color & a huge school of Glass Catfish would add that weird fish factor. Few fish school as well as Glass Cats dontcha know. May even have some room left for a good school of Harlequin Rasboras.............
Man, I wish I had that tank with that stocking myself 8-)
those sound really cool:D andif you want abig tank, go on craigslist. thats where i got mine! entiresetup with tank stand pumps filters atc for only 150!
by non-agressive, i mean they wont tryto kill my other fish, i dont want 1 big fish that will eat everything else or need to be kept alone
No, the male Pearl will chase the female sometimes but it's more like he's hunting/playing and he never hurts her. She shows no damage and she doesn't even seem to mind! I think she likes the attention................:-P
