125 Gallon Tank Breeding Options
This is one of my first posts on these forums but I am not a newbie and am rather knowledgeable about fish care. I currently have a bare 125 gallon tank sitting in my living room and was very interested in devoting it to breeding some type of cichlid species. Due to expenses I am planning on keeping it mostly bare(it does contain a 1" layer of gravel) and was wondering if there are any cichlid species that would thrive in such an austere setting(I may have a couple of decorations and of course flowerpots for the spawning surface/niche). Alternatively, I am open to any other species of fish not from the Cichlidae family that would breed and live well in this setting. Thanks for your advice in advance!
try african chilids.they are hardy and come in a lot of colours.
Are you doing this to make cash or just for the experience of doing it?
I am doing it just for the experience of it although I would not mind making some extra cash on the side.
I think African cichlids would prefer lots of rock and cave structures. For a bare open tank like that maybe a pair of the larger American cichlids. I would do a pair of Jaguar cichlids if it were me. I've always wanted them but don't have a large enough tank.
Were it me I'd want to breed discus, simply for the challenge. If successful it would put a nice chunk of change in your pocket. The problem is the intial expense, you'd need a mated pair. Not cheap.
I also like Jeaninel's idea, Jaguars would be cool to breed. I've never seen any Jaguars offered 'round my area, though.
Thirding jags! Very cool fish, and you've got the room for it.
