Ok, I have an agonizing situation....
I currently have a 30 gallon freshwater setup with a Marineland C220 filter. It is stocked as follows: 4 clown loaches, 1 anglefish, 1 silver dollar 3 neon tetras 4 black tetras 3 female swords 1 male sword 1 oto, and possibly a baboo shrimp that I haven't seen for a while. I would really like to move to a 55 set up but I don't think the filter would support this. I know that the loaches will only become to big, but I don't want to get rid of any of the fish, hence the agony. What would you folks do????????
This would give you time to save for maybe 125 gal which in my view would accomodate the loaches and Silver dollar(grow large also) for some time.
I kept a group of five clown loaches for a couple year's in 80 gal but then gave them to small fish store i frequent and he placed them in 125 gal display tank.
I still see them when I stop in and this bring's me comfort.
start puttin money back now and stop puttin it into this tank =)
As for the clown loach, as 1077 mentioned, the 55g is only a stop-gap for the present. Eventually you will need a larger tank for the clown loaches or they will not be in the best of health, and that is not fair to the fish. Returning them to a good store, or finding a good home with another aquarist, is better now than later.
