Awesome setup for a river tank, puts the smaller setups with powerheads and pvc to create a linear flow to shame. Add a chiller and you could keep...

I'm feeling sorry for the lone silver dollar. They're social/schooling fish, and really need other silver dollars (species doesn't matter, just same...

A single female convict should be safe enough to mix with a krib in a 20.
