    Would it be best to put the severum in with 3 2” geophagus and 2 paradise fish in a 40 gallon Breeder and take the geophagus Braziliansis in with the fire mouth since the Braziliensis is a bully and chases the other ones around? What’s best to do?

    It's not hurting anything, but if you could fit it into a filter, it will colonize with BB better and faster

    I figured if substrate can hold good bacteria the ceramic media in bags could also get the good bacteria. That was probably just a stupid guess on my part.

    No, not at all. It may take a while but the extra media will seed provided there's enough bioload for the bacteria to grow.

    I do know about it being in the filter. Maybe I will pull out my large marineland filter and fill that up with media. I was just trying to get as much as I could. Nothing wrong with extra filtering so I will do that:) still not enough media but your right it’s better.

    The brasilensis may kill the FM. You could try it to ese what happens, but in the long run you need a 6 foot tank sooner rather than later.

    I am trying to get my LFS to move faster for the 210 I have these fish separated as best I know so I can grow them out some. If anyone has a better arrangement they can think of I will do it. I do not want any of these juveniles to get hurt or die. I would have waited on the fire mouth had I known but the LFS said it would be ok for the mean time. What is the smallest tank the fire mouth could go into temporarily if need be. I have 6 tanks running so I am trying to avoid setting up another one but I will if I have to.
