I am sorry i should know this by now but i keep forgetting. Could you add the size of the different tanks?

However I can say this now.
Tank 1: need to know size. You might be over stocking it. Severums are not schooling but rather territorial fish.
Tank 2: Sounds good
tank 3: sounds good.
tank 4: The black ghost would eventually eat the Betta when it grows larger but you would need to move it to another tank as it grows so that might not be a problem.

Umm ill have to get the measuremants i had them written down but i forget now but i know tank 1 is 55 gallons

05-19-2006, 08:51 PM
Ok. That was the one I needed the measuremnt for most.

I would not keep more than max 2 pairs of severum in it. Prefrable just one to give them room to form a territory and breed.

well i just wanted atleast one i didnt want to man anyway just thougth they needed to be in a school but other wise should i be alright with 4 inch oscar, 9 icnh oscar, 2 - 7 inch severums and 3 silver dollars would that be alright

05-19-2006, 09:32 PM
Yes. For now atleast. Oscars can as you know grow to be monster.

wicked mine isnt to mean now considering he follows a 4 inch red tiger around

05-19-2006, 11:50 PM
Some/many are gentle but they still grows very large.

05-20-2006, 06:50 AM
like you say they have their own personality like humans

05-27-2006, 03:48 PM
Ok now my 20 gal has
1 Black ghost
1 Silver Dollar
5 Blackskirts
2 blue gouramis
1 white gourami
5 goldfish (shubunkin, redcap, Black moor, 2 fantails)
2 white clouds
2 zebra danios
2 plattys
The fish get along fine but i was curious would it be safe to get 2 more 3 inch black ghosts which will go into my oscar tank when bigger and possibly some sort of bottom feeder?

05-27-2006, 08:34 PM
Maybe but the black ghosts would eat some of those fish when they grow a little larger.

Is it bad to keep a 2 inch black moor with a siamese fighter because they are together and are doing fine but i was curious because the black moor didnt take well to the warm water with the new set up so i thought id keep him in coldwater

05-30-2006, 06:12 AM
They are better kept in different temperatures. Especially since Betta fish likes rather high temperature.

Hey when i buy my new tank for my oscars ill be left with a 20 gal could i possibly keep either a flowerhorn or two or a pair of green terorrs in it? because ive seen people keep several green terrors in tanks about 40 gal and there was a fair few in the tank

08-14-2006, 01:08 PM
not really the best when full grown. you could breed convicts in it.

08-14-2006, 01:26 PM
yeah i have a pair of convicts but yeah

08-14-2006, 11:59 PM
or use it for growout for bigger tanks or the convict fry.
