First attempt at a Stocking "list"
29G tank - planted lightly now, will be moderately planted by the time the stocking begins. I plan to add them in pairs by species over time except for the Hatchets.
2 Clown Killifish - not sure when but at some point I will get them :)
6-7 Marble Hatchets
2 Honey Dwarf Gouramis
2 Praecox Rainbows
6 Ghost Shrimp (can't seem to figure out if anything above will eat them)
This is in addition to the 10 Danios I have now that are cycling the tank with 2 Siamese Algae Eaters. Would this be too many fish? Could I add another pair of fish? If so I was thinking of 2 German Rams, but not sure if they would hurt or be aggressive to any of the other fish.
Go with 4-6 praecox as you don't have that many mid level dwellers. Hatchets, gouramis and killifish stay mostly on the surface.:) None will eat your shrimps.:) If your tank is heavily-planted, you'll be surprised how many praecox rainbow fry will actually survive(without the shrimps of course).:)
Do you think the Rams would fit in, I would plan on getting the German Blue Ram Papilochromis ramirezi and making a cave for them. Maybe just one male or maybe a m/f see if the pair.
Thanks Blue! I think I will stick with a single male then, as long as it won't be detrimental to him or to the tank.
So my list is now comprised of the following
2 Clown Killifish
2 Dwarf Honey Gouramis
1 Male German Blue Ram
6 Praecox Rainbows
6-7 Hatchets (are they better in even or odd # groups?)
6 Ghost Shrimp
Would I need any additional algae eaters than the two Siamese I have now?
That's great.:) As long as the SAEs don't bicker with each other, both will be fine.:) As for the gourami, it's probably Honey Gourami(Colisa sota) rather than Dwarf Honey Gourami.
The number of hatchets in odds and evens will not matter.:)
Blue. Thanks for all of your help!!! :thankyou:
Sorry to rain on the parade here, but that is an awful lot of fish for that size of a tank... Even if heavily planted, you may run into problems with the danios and the hatchets over time, and waste levels are going to require A LOT of water changes.
Sometimes I need eye glasses just to notice 10 danios.:frustrated:
