View Full Version : 48 gallon Stockage

05-19-2006, 08:30 PM
Hi there new to the site.
I just got a 48 gallon.
I'm thinking of finnally getting some cichlids. So here my stock I'm thinking of:
8-10 Harqulin Rasobras(or small tetra)
6 Corys
1 Dwarf Gourami
as for the cichlids:
Pair of keyholes
Pair of Rams(blue)

Someone told me that rams and keys like to stick to the bottom, so they said the bottom might be a little full...is this true?

Does this sound like a good stock? Plant are in there I have a heater and a Fuval filter.
Dose this sound good ...and does anyone have ne better suggestions?

I think everything sounds good. The keyholes will spend much of their time in the middle of the tank.

What I might suggest is some type of algea eater like a bristlenose catfish and perhaps a couple of females for the dwarf gourami.

Well, Ive gone and changed my mind agian, I dicided that the Keys are not coulor full enogh so:

I have a 48G(cycled) current stock:
6Serpae Tetra(getting 4 more)

Pair Blue Rams
1Dwarf Gourami

I was supposed to get Keyholes but I don't like them too much.
I was thinking another pair of rams or AngleFish?
Anyother suggestion?

The serpea might nip

Color full suggestions that would suit your tank inludes apistogramma species and african butterfly cichlid.

Be forewarned, although blue rams are generally not aggressive, my male harassed the daylights out of my dwarf gourami's, the 2 female rams I bought for him, and the bolivian ram I tried!

How high is your tank. Asking since it might be small for adult angels.
