I haven't posted about my 55g lately, currently its sitting dry, been really busy with work. Finally got time to work on my tanks. I'm thinking of what would be a good stock for the tank I got to move the rocks around and restack them, also removing the wood. Moving it to the 37g, since it's running and has some fish in it.(I'll update the post for the 37g later) I was thinking of getting into African Cichilds, since they are very brightly colored and have personalities of their own. I think 6-8 would be the most I can keep in the tank without over crowding it. What do you guys think?
I went to PetSmart to get crickets for my geckos, ended up with 8 Neon Tetras, large ones at that. 6 of them are the size of my Black Neon Tetras. They are eating well. They hid for a day, but now are out and about, sometimes joining the black neons. I noticed the Black Neon Tetras stay at the top and the Neons stay in the middle.
Now have 20 Tetras in the tank. The Neons are now just swimming thoughout the tank, joining in with the Black Neons. No longer staying in one area. Angels leave them alone, no interest, but they are still young. I even noticed my pleco is out a lot more.
Why do you think you are over stocked?
BIO load wise, my 100gal has more then twice you stock. It has been running like this for years. My Cardinals are almost 8yrs (if I can remember when I bought them).
