Hi! Just joined and thought I would tell a little about myself.
Have been into fish -keeping for 27 years and am just as fascinated by fish behavior ( if not more) than the day I started. ;)

Right now I have three tanks:
1- 60 gallon tank with discus with rummy- nose tetras ( have had a discus tank running for 15 years).

1- 30 gallon featuring a rare tetra called Imperial Tetra Hyphessobrycon sp. "Peru" ( I love tetras and have in the last year become interested in wild and rare varieties). I am hoping to breed these tetras once they get out of the juvenile stage. Also, in this tank have Brochis splendens "Emerald Green Cory."

180 gallon tank ( this tank is in the works and will be set up in next few weeks). This set-up will be geophagus sp. ( either mirabilis, Argyrostictus, or sveni). I want wilds but it will all depend on whats available from Jeff Rapps or Wetspot.
Also, want to add a huge school ( about 60) of a larger tetra ( deep-bodied) but not qwuite sure which. Most likely a hyphessobrycon sp., but if there are experts in stocking on this forum- maybe you can help me out on choosing a good tetra to add to this tank!
Oh! I will also add a pleco, most likely L-200 ( the "Green Phantom Pleco")

Thanks for reading! :)

Welcome to the Community! :22:

Be sure to set up a journal for your new tank. There are a bunch of us who love following along and watching as a tank evolves. :)

Yeah!! Always nice to meet a SA cichlid lover! :)
What kind of cichlids do you have?

I have curviceps, angels, and bolivian rams at the moment but I work in a LFS so I see many different south american cichlids on a daily basis lol

Welcome to AC!

Caution note with the phantoms-they love algae/plants and stream-like conditions. I tried one without doing the research years ago-and it didn't work out for me. That was before this (http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk/features/articles/keeping-and-breeding-the-green-phantom-plec) helpful article.

Would love to try again, but not setting up a river tank big enough for their needs.
