New Firemouth cichlid (pic) and updated plans for 120 gallon tank
My FM arrived at the fish store this week so I brought him home.
I've decided the pleco...
that I got with the tank...
craps wayyyy too much (I'll spare you the pic here) so she's been put on craigslist.
Here's my most recent plans:
tapajos read head geophagus
threadfin geophagus (maybe, this one doesn't seem to be as hardy so I'm iffy on it)
I'm thinking just one of each and I'm still having a hard time letting go of the idea of having a bichir (dinosaur eel) in there if I can be positive I'm getting the type that doesn't get HUGE, just big (I've gotten some push-back on another thread about mixing the bichir in, and understandably so). From what I've read, the bichir that I want to get should be OK with any fish not small enough to be food. The smallest of these fish are 5 inches so I feel like I should be OK.
What do you think about this mix of cichlids? Any other thoughts on the bichir?
