View Full Version : New 3ft Tank

02-16-2009, 11:36 AM

I have just recently inherited a 3 ft fish tank. It has all the running gear incl EHEIM pump heater lights etc.. it also has 3 clown loaches, 3 mollies (1 M and 2 F), 3 sword tails (1M and 2 F), 10 small feeder fish and 4 feeder crayfish. Is there any room for any other fish? id really like to expand and put some bigger colourful fish in with the intention of buying a bigger tank in a few months to move the bigger ones to. Can i mix Cichlids with these fish? Any other ideas??

I think that tank is maxed out, those clowns get big

The best way to get fish for another tank is to get the other tank first!thumbs2:

Welcome to AC. What species of fish are your 'feeders'. The clown loaches will get too big for your tank and the crayfish will eat your fish eventually.

The crayfish will only grow to 50-80mm so I will move them to the new tank when I buy it. The feeder fish are tiny so I really have no idea what they are..???? :confused:
