Lovely tank Blue, i specially like your Rams, i've never been able to keep one they die on me... why only one rummy nose tetra? I thought they were schooling fish?

26 Golden Pencilfish wow and not over stocked?????

Lupin 08-08-2006 11:46 AM

Hi Oceane,
I had a wipeout of rummies and neons so only one rummy left. I won't buy any more rummies for the time being. I don't want another wipeout which commonly hits the rainbows and tetras.
I do better with rams, angels and other cichlids. Been keeping Malawi and Tangs but I'm bored to death over those two African cichlids.:D

Hi Joe, not overstocked.
The point being their size is 4-5 cm. Neither are they big poopers. They eat less. I'd hate the goldfish if they are in my tank.
