Fish question :)
Heres what I have
29 Gallon Aquarium:
-sword plant/1 tall skinny one with broad leaves at the top/something lookin like hornwot tho its not.
-3 medium sized fake plants
-1 rather large cave
And i am curious as to what fish would be interesting in there.
I have 2 angels, a pleco, 3 corys, 3 otos
I was going to get rid of the pleco...maybe for a bristle..so it wont outgrow it and probably the angels.
So in the case i get rid of the angels..i compiled a list of fish i would like available at my local fish store.
bettas(either gender) kind of have a fancy for these would like at least 1..
black phantom tetras
male fancy guppies
african dwarf frog
glofish these are kinda cool too..wouldnt mind some
Other possible fish i kind of liked..
The really colorful small gourami?
Also saw fish labed as (asst african chiclid)..do they get big or is that to general?
eel..any small ones?
Any other colorful fish that are small to medium sized and relativly active you can think of?
Would appreciate possible combinations including numbers if ya dont mind
Thanks in advance :)
Most of those fish would be a nice addition to a community.
Most of those you listed will work well together, so it would just decide what you want. The things you need are:
-Bettas. Only keep 1 male per tank, or 4 or more females. They can go with community fish, but it all depends on the betta's personality.
-Rainbow/RTBS should only have 1 per aquarium. Most LFS keep a lot when they are young, but as they get older they get very territorial with their own specie. Don't mix them either.
-Bander Lepornius gets up to 12" long, and can eat other fish.
-Tiger Barbs are highly reccomended to have 6 or more. They become very nippy if not kept in a shoal.
-Dwarf Gouramis can be peaceful, but they can be aggressive.
-Assorted African Cics need a specie-only tank, and it would have to bigger than a 29G. You never know what you are getting, so that is risky.
-I don't have any experience with Ropefish, but I heard they will eat small fish.
-The best eel for a 29g is a peacock eel. Very interesting. They like to burrow and hide, and get around 8-12" long in an aquarium. They can eat smaller fish as they mature.
where would you be able to get a peacock eel
So far im at:
either 1m or 3f bettas
red tailed black shark
7 cherry barbs
that seem right or can i add more?
My LFS sells them.
I would suggest either doing a livebearer tank (mollies, male guppies, swords and possibly dwarf gouramies) or the tiger barbs in a species tank with the ottos and maybe cories. Not sure about mixing barbs and cories. The frogs can mix with any of these..just make sure you have a tight fitting hood since they like to jump out!
1 male betta
1 Pleco (i cant part with him haha)
maybe small school of 2 different fish...doesnt seem to crowded..
7 female bettas
some school of 1 different fish..?
Please do correct these if you have any objections. :) i like colorful fish..more entertaining to watch.
I like the fist option. Check out this post about what other fish you can put in with the male betta. http://www.fishforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=13215
