Thread: I'm new

  1. Default I'm new

    Hey i'm Jerry, a 15 year old guy from Georgia. I have some experience in aquariums, but i have a lot to learn. I currently have 4 aquariums. My first is a ten gallon molly tank. My second is a 30 gallon African Cichlid tank. My third and favorite tank is a 55 gallon bow front (if not 55 it's close to it). In it i have 5 angelfish, 7 denison barbs, 3 albino cory cats, and an African feather fin catfish. My final tank is a 30 gallon long that i inherited from my brother who is going to college in a couple days. In it he already has 3 angelfish (juvi) and 5 dwarf honey groumies. All of my aquariums are planted except my cichlid tank. Any ideas on completing the stocking of the 30 long? I was thinking 3 German Blue Rams and 8 corys.

    Sure. Rams and Angels is going to be an interesting mix. Briefly though, roughly until one reaches sexual maturity.

    Now, south American cichlid species as a rule do not mix. They tend to turn homicidal maniac when they start breeding. Personally I think you got an angel surplus already. A 30 gallon is too small and your big tank is stocked.

    I disagree on the Angels and Rams, I have seen many nice tanks with the two mixed... however you need to have the proper size tank even for the angels before you add rams. I agree that a 30g in not the right size for that combo. I think the 56 tall aquariums would be a good set up min for a pair of angels and a pair of rams

    If a pair formed i would set up an additional tank for the pair. Would that make it acceptable?

    Assuming that wouldn't work, any other species that would work? Maybe a small school of tetras or something?
