  1. Default So what do ya I full?

    0 Not allowed!
    I have a 64 gallon (footprint 36x18", 24" tall) and I believe I am full now, finally! Tell me what ya think
    4 corycats (1 albino, 1 bronze, 2 orange lazer)
    1 bolivian ram
    2 small clown loaches (will be rehomed to existing 90 gallon when full grown)
    6 sparkling/pygmy gourami
    3 danios (1 zebra, 1 pearl, 1 gold?smaller than zebra, gold in color)
    1 rummynose tetra
    2 white skirt tetras
    2 honey gourami
    2 dwarf gourami(not there currently, healing in quarantine from my german ram in another tank)
    1 german blue ram (also healing in quarantine from male german ram, Demon...when she grows up may try her with male again)
    1 oto (started with 4, 3 died)

    I realize now the tetras should have schooling numbers, but the kids bought them, and I really don't want more. Thankfully they interact with other fish and seem happy. If there is any room for anything else I would be surprised! With my sparkling gourami's just starting to peek out and see the world, things look kinda empty!

    64 gallon, nice size tank. now this is me, but i would put more fish in, maybe another 20. you only have smaller types of fish in there. i would add more, unless you are happy with what you got.

    I think I would add some more fish of the secies you allready got. I would add so that I had a pair of the bolivian rams, perhaps a few more female german ram since the aggression of the male are spread out over the females then and because germans rams are very beautiful when they breed.

    I would also add some Tetras so that you had 6-10 rummynose tetra and white skirt tetras. they look much better when kept in schools.

    Well, my male g. ram is in my 29 gallon. The original plan in that tank was 1 male, 2 females, and the pair of kribs, and the 2 male dwarf gourami's. Demon, the male german ram has had other ideas and wouldn't tolerate the females, the dwarfs or the b. ram! Even though the b. ram is so much bigger than he is Demon kept her cornered and beat her up so she had to be rehomed into the 64 gallon. Sissy, my bolivian ram is quite happy being with her peaceful tankmates! The female g. ram is awaiting transfer to the 64 gallon, although I may give her 1 more chance with Demon when she is mature. She was younger and smaller. He is doing fine with the kribs, kuhlis and gold tetras in there. Because of this I am leery of getting another b. ram for more tanks available to rehome! Do you think Demon would work out better in the 64 gal with the female? He is MEAN!
    I KNEW you guys would say get more rummy and white skirt, but like I said, they were my daughters purchases, not exactly my favorite fish, but thankfully they seem happy running around with other fish. The rummynose always has his red face colored brightly, and the white skirts are the only fish always out, not hiding.
    And btw Rollie....are fish lovers EVER happy with what they have???? LOL

    ok. True that fish lovers never have enough fish.

    Perhaps you should consider getting more algea eaters. 1 on 20 gallon of water is usually good to have.

    I am not sure about the algae eaters William...I had 4 otos, and had lost 3 fairly soon after getting them. I know they aren't the easiest of fish to bring home, and frequently don't make it. The problem is is that when they do die, they aren't exactly the most seen fish in a tank then I have to go looking for the bodies....eeeewwww! I have considered it though...and would probably try again if I found the zebra otos. I have not yet seen true SAE's around here, although if I tried real hard I could probably order them, but then would have to make sure they are SAE's so I didn't end up with aggressive non algae eating buggers.

    You don't have to go with otos. There are other more visable and hardier species such as the bristlenosed catfish.
