Gold Saum tank mates?
 
What can live with a Saum?
on Mfk i seen some1 say
Tiger Barb's :shock:
Giant Danios :shock:

what do you think?


he owns the Oscar's i have but is fine with the Silver Dollar's,
also he holds his own with a foot long walking cat (the Saum is only 5 - 6 inch)

any help or is he going to be like my old Red Devil and need a tank of his own?

thanks Shane :wink:

My saum RIP, lived fine with sevs Rt jd and texas, but one day he had a slight run in, usual stuff with his tankmates and the thing that killed him was a bloody yoyo loach ate into his head oneday while i was at work.

Is that Saum a Severum?:mrgreen: Giant danios are fine though as they can reach 4 inches and can swim very fast, fast enough to escape predation.:wink2: Not sure how the tiger barbs will fend off large fish though.:blink:

hi Dill

thing with this 1 is he beats the hell out of my 2x oscars and he gives a 1 foot long walking cat a bit of a hard time when he goes near him 2, i've been told loads of times over the years that they are a nasty fish but i've never seen it with any of the 1's i've had, till now.


till now, yes, till now :?
looking in the tank this morning and he seems fine just swimming around doing his own thing, why would he do this?
all the fish i've ever had that have been nasty have been nasty so why would a fish change over night?

Tough one Shane,

As always, as I'm sure your fully aware its the individual. You could try some dithers, but I would possibly say its deffinatley the domination game. Looks like that devil tanks getting a new resident. You could go down the route of a seperator, but I think that just delays a resident problem. Has he developed any bite marks overnight?

the white O is not that good, he has some chunks missing
the clarias is doing well if you say "doing well" is good with a hole in the head

it seems its just thoes 2 he is not fond of?

but like i say the white O can go near him now with out getting chased around the tant a few times, all he'll get is a nip and thats it, but still not good.

thanks 4 the replys dill

shane
