hi guys

iv just got me a new tank (well 2 tanks)

and i'm in there thinkings what to put in them

tank 1 this is what in thinking

the tank = 40" long X 14" wide X 20" high
on the bottom = coral sand
decor = lava rock
fish = calvus/Compressiceps/syno

tank 2 is where i need some help

tank = 22" long X 16" wide X 20" High
on the bottom = crystal quarts
decor = dog wood/real plants
fish = HhMmmm i do and don't no


i like
- Hatchet Fish
- Corys
- Clown/kuli Loaches
- Rainbow Fish (red)
- Discus

will Dicus live in a tank of this size?
also i was thinking of only having one sp of bottom dweller, so i only want 1 out of these 3 - Corys/Clown/kuli Loaches, yes the clown loach get big but they are also slow growers and if and when they get to big 4 the tank there is a 300l they can go into.

waiting 4 some replys :roll: :wink:

thanks guys

I'm feeling good, just trying something a little bit different. All my other tansk that I've tried having small/community fish in have all been bigger tanks so the monsters move in in the end. This tank is not big enough for anything monster so I'm hoping the tiddlers will last me this time.

A 55 gallons would be minimum for 4 discus.

hi

in your smaller tank dont think about discus.

you can keep the other fish .

( better to keep cory and loach of the same size the biger loach are some how naughty)
there is no confilct with the others.

in the biger tank I think it is about 40 gallons ( am I right ? did you mean 20 " watter or 20" of all the aquarium hight)

you can keep 4 discus but if you are trying to keep discus try to buy some very small fish like litte tetras with them, and If you can find healthy discus the smaller the better ( for your tank I mean)
better to ask the seller feed them and buy discus that are eating well. or see the stomach is full it means that they are healthy at the moment.

regards
