    Default What to do with last man standing...


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello,

    Question:
    I originally had 6 harlequin rasboras, after a few years my 6-pack is currently down to a 2-pack. The last 2 are still doing great, but I know they are best kept in larger groups...I'm feeling guilty that there's only 2 of them now but I don't want to re-stock more of them as once the last 2 pass on, I would like to stock a new type of fish.
    My question/dilemma is: keep them as-is until their time, or, try to find a new home for them elsewhere so they can be with more mates?
    They are doing great, low stress heavily planted 20gal long tank with 6 super peaceful julii cory cats, half dozen amano shrimp and assassin snails.

    Thoughts?
    Thanks!

    Just keep them. They have been in that tank for a few years so they are fine. Moving them will probably cause more stress then good. If you dont want to restock them then don't. If compatible you could probably start introducing the new fish you want to get little by little. We all have to face this problem sooner or later.

    i couldn't be more confident in suggesting this to you...

    get a school of black neons if you want some more livestock in that tank. they will hang out together. if you don't want the neons, though...i bet they will be fine as a twosome since they are so used to the tank...
    20gal heavily planted: 15 glolight tetra, 5 neon tetra, 5 otocinclus
