stocking suggestions for semi-agressive community
Well, i was thinking about just pairing off my blues into their own tank. But.. the more I think about it the more I think ill just get a big tank and do a 55 gallon semi agressive community.
it would definitely have my 2 blue gouramis.. and id like to get a rainbow shark.
what else would go in there? suggestions please :)
maybe a pair of gold severums?
Rainbow or Red Tailed Sharks are pretty good additions, they will help with the algae as well. Sevs should be fine. Tiger barbs make a nice addition as well.
would i be overstocked in a 55 if i had 2 blue gouramis, a redtailed shark (because they dont get as big according to liveaquaria) a common pleco, 2 gold severums or 2 or 3 kissing gouramis, and 4 or 5 tiger barbs?
id think the blues and barbs would be a little small, but i dont doubt they can handle themselves
I'd advise against the kissing gourami and common plec - they get huge!
There are so many plec species out there though, of almost every soze from 1" to well over a foot. I'm sure there'll be something you fancy.
i already have the pleco in my 30g, but he will out grow that before too long lol
Tiger barbs should be kept in groups of 6+ otherwise they will nip everyone.
I would suggest from your list:
2 Blue gouramis
1 common pleco
2 gold severums
6 tiger barbs
as of today i got notification that might get a 110 gallon tank for cheap from a buddy. IF its a 110 tall or 110 regular im all over leif's suggestions like woah.
if its a 110 long im getting a rainbow or redtail shark and balas like woah :D and of course some tiger barbs lol
If i where you, Honestly I forget the guaramis or the Sevs, and go with 2 schools of tiger barbs
6 Green and 6 Regular, they all school togeather and looks awsome!
id keep the sevs, there geat, but i had a pair and one always nipped at the other one... the more aggressive one died a while back so thats not a problem anymore but still id go with atleast one. Also blue/opaline gouramis are great additions... just dont have 2 males, made that mistake and have heard of others makin it aswell,, most normally results in death (my situation),, i would def add a rainbow or red tailed shark, great fish, most say one or the other tho cuz they tend to be aggressive with eachother to the extreme, but it can be pulled off fine. They also only recomended getting one of whatever u decide for the same reason. (once again u can pull off having 2, depends on the personalities but its a risk)... my oppinion have those 3 species in there, (opaline, sev, shark)... great fish, the opaline and sev will great u and the sharks are great to watch, but provide hiding places as there territorial...
