  1. Question African butterfly and Leopard bush fish ?

    0 Not allowed!
    I have a African Butterfly fish and a leopard bush and i would like to transfer them in to my 30 gallon mixed tank but i dont know if they will eat all of my fish. i already am considering moving my danios, rosy barbs, killifish, and siamses algae eater out of the tank i was wondering if my clown loach, hillstream loaches, apistogramma veijitas, hoplo, and keyhole cichlid will be okay?
    I know thats alot of fish in a 30 gallon. i routinely do water changes and test the water weekly i have had only one killi die on me in 8 months.
    I was just wondering if the leopard or Butterfly could go into the tank?

    Sorry, if this is a weird post im new to the forum

    One thing for sure, too much fish in the 30G. I will rehome everything if i were you.

    I won't put any more fish in there until you rehome the other fish.

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    It would help if you use punctuation when you write : ) - I was having a little difficulty with what you wrote - your other tank is a 15gal and you have how many fish in there?

    The 15 housed a dojo and some tiger barbs as my cycle fish. But i sold them for the butterfly and leopard so right now the butterfly and leopard are in there. I know that they both need the bigger style tank (im getting a 75 gallon soon). So i thought it would be a good idea to put them in the thirty but i know they would eat the danios, rosy barbs, killi, and siamese algae eater because they are smaller in size. I dont know if they would torment or mess with the keyhole or the apistos. I'm not too worried about the hoplo or the loaches. Im just wondering what i should do.

    Butterfly fish are surface dwellers only and shouldn't bother mid water swimers (of course if small fish eat at the surface, that could change.) I have had those in the past and they left my other fish alone. Can't say anything on the other. Hope you get the 75 soon - unless you have extra filters to spare that are cycled, you will need time to cycle the 75. Even with an extra cycled filter, except a strong spike that will last a week or more if you transfer a lot of fish. Becareful.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    So i take it that its not a good idea
    to have the 30 gallon be:
    African butterfly
    Leopard bush fish
    2 Apistos
    3 springwell loaches
    clown loach

    and not a good idea to have the 15 gallon be:
    5 zebra danios asst.
    3 rosy barbs
    1 killi
    1 siamese algae eater?

    Remember over filtration does not automatically mean you are able to over stock your tank.

    for instance a 30G with a 100G filtration system would still be over stocked with 1 common pleco, I suggest rehoming and starting afresh
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .
