What kind of fish are going in there? Any ideas yet? Assuming you are looking at using live plants?

Molinious 04-26-2012 05:06 PM

I wouldnt use anything other than live plants!!!!!!! I already have a 140ltr corner aquarium setup with
Congo tetras, neon tetras, rummynose tetras, rosy tetras, cherry barbs, gold plec, yoyo, crs, bettas so was thinking of moving them into 1 of the new tanks together or split them

Or try something completely different with 1 of the tanks, iv got a great stockist local to me that can get pretty much anything you can ask for, just give them some time to source them

I've been thinking lately about how some cardinal tetras and german blue rams would be cool together. It would be at a little higher temp then most tanks, but there would still be a lot you could do with plants. Just my thoughts, I'm pretty sure my next tank will be stocked this way. Just have to talk the wife into letting me get another tank first.

Well..if you have those all in groups as those species require that is a massively overstocked tank. If they are not in groups I would encourage you to try and rehome some. What size is the new tank?

I'd base the new tank around the congo tetra and compatible species..
In the 140L I would leave the rummmies, cherries, betta, possibly rosies, possible neons. Move everyone else.
I wouldn't be keeping congo tetra with small fish like that.

There only in groups of 6, they seem very happy and have flourished,over stocking doesnt seem to be an issue as no problems with inter species relationg or disease

New tank is 4ft long see picture below

youd be suprised with the harmony in the aquarium, iv not had a case of fin nipping or any agressive issues to date, hense why iv purchased large aquaria as i think they deserve more space

the congos really are becoming a favourite of mine maybe set up a species tank for them
