    Default Blackwater Amazon Biotope Stocking

    I'm redoing my 90 gallon into a biotope of the Amazon. Here's what I'm thinking thus far for my stock.

    New Additions
    1 Geophagus daemon (only one in my city currently)
    3 Geophagus winemilleri
    2 Blue rams
    10 Cardinal tetra
    10 Black neon tetra
    10 Glowlight tetra

    Remaining Fish
    5 Pygmy wood catfish
    3 Hassar orestis
    3 Hoplo catfish
    2 Porthole catfish

    I'm expecting to lose a few tetra here and there to the geos, but from my readings they generally aren't too predatory. Thoughts and/or suggestions?

    I think it looks pretty good, I would increase your tetra schools to 12-15. 15 for the Cardinals for sure, all three species of tetra you have selected, look and act best in bigger schools, just my two cents ;-)

    Gonna seem a bit crowded once those Winemilleri start to push past 6". Just to note, not a lot of geos are shoaling fish at adult sizes so you can expect aggression in a 4 foot box.

    My 90 gallon is 6 feet, not that it changes much, but it does give 2 more square feet. If I run into issues with aggressive winemilleri, I can either part them off to a geophagus enthusiast I know with a 250 gallon or depending on what my 210 gallon is stocked with down the road, move them into that tank.

    How tall is the 90? I've not heard of a 6 foot one before.

    18" tall. It's an old bracerless tank from the 90s, so definitely uncommon measurements.

    The beginning... went with rummynose, cardinal, glowlight and black neon. Need to increase the numbers of cardinals and glowlights though, didn't have anymore at work. Also need to get some dried botanicals!

    Nice, I like it, tetras are my favorite fish

    A few questions...why the low water level?...because of the turtle?

    And you don't fear the turtle preying upon the fish?
