I have a 75 gal tank thats about 48'' long. Right now there's a 7-8'' sailfin plecko a 3'' red oscar and a 3'' albino red oscar. I'm researching adding a fire eel... I'm coming up 50/50. Ya think it could work?
What type of substrate and what type of (if any) rock, cave and hidey-hole formations?? Eels will totally bury themselves when threatened so you need to make sure he's able to do this, should the oscars decide to go after him. Some solid rock formations will also allow for this.
um I thought it was recommended that two oscars live in a minimum 75 gal. So would you be overstocking?
Good catch Rohland! I'm a firm believer in weekly water changes (40%) and by doing so you can push stock limits somewhat as long as water params stay well within *perfect*. Of course, there's always the option of a tank upgrade once the fish start pushing full adult size. JMHO.
imho...if your not planning on getting atleast a 125g or larger tank with in the next 6 months, your tank is over stocked. plecos and oscars are big poop machines-having large bio loads. your pleco will get to 12 inch and the oscars will be 12 inch plus and the fire eel (if you choose to get it) can get to 2 feet. the reason i 6 months is that your oscars will be about 10 inch within that time.
Thanks for the input... I've decided to against the eel until I get a tank to keep at home.
