Posts Tagged ‘loach’

Well, in hope to set up a marine tank sometime in the future, i’m going after a bigger tank. Instead of a 42 gallon, the tank i’m now looking at is 56 gallons, and a foot longer. The new dimentions are 48″ long x 15″ wide x 18″ high. As for stocking, I was thinking:

2x fully mature, already paired off gold angelfish

6x or so Australian rainbowfish

20-30x male guppies (the ones from when I used to breed)

5x rummynose tetras (I already have these)

3x black kuhlie loaches (again, I already have these)

2x German blue rams; and possibly

2x kribensis

I might not get the kribs due to the fact that once fully grown they might have a go at my guppies and because of their aggression, should they choose to breed. I am also concerned about the aggression of the angels and the rams when/if they breed. Hopefully I will never have to deal with more than one spawn at a time, so that all the other fish have space to retreat when the spawning fish set up a territory.
