  1. Default Cold water tank mates

    I have a 40g breeder with 4 dojo loaches and 6 Neon Blue Stiphodon Gobys. I am also going to add some Hillstream loaches when the LFS gets a nice batch in. I want something that will swim middle to top level though as most of these fish are bottom feeders (even though the dojos are all over sometimes). Any suggestions?

    I'm guessing you'll have a lot of current in that tank to keep the loaches alive. White Cloud Mountain minnows and many danio species would fit the bill of a fast swimming, mid to top dwelling species.

    actually no not too much current. I have a very large bubble bar that runs pretty much the whole width of the tank and two aqua clears on each corner. I also have a 300gph powerhead that I run several times a week for a few hours each time but other wise it stays off. The fish like to play in it when it is on but its a little bit much for all the time. If I just had hillstreams and neon gobys I would leave it on 24/7 and use my river tank manifold that I built awhile ago.

    I think if someone thinks clownfish are called nemos they should banned from keeping sw tank.
