    Exclamation Update on my 125 CA/SA


    0 Not allowed!
    Hey there. Its been a while since ive posted and wanted to update everyone on my 125...

    As of now I have two H. Notatus Severums, one Brasiliensis GEO and a rainbow cichlid. 6 TB's and 3 c. loaches as dithers and a L81 GN pleco

    I'm still running the FX5 and AC 100 for filters. I also added a large sponge filter.

    I rehomed the ID shark and the Salvini and moved the angels into another tank. I would like to add a couple more Rainbow cichlids.. What you think? They're so beautiful. How does every feel about stock amount? Any advice for additions? Maybe another small school of red/blue columbians or Buenos Aries tetras?

    Thanks, Eric

    You are right at the edge for stocking. Also, adding more cichlids could increase the aggression all across the other cichlids. They are fine the way they are now. Stick with more tetras, its a smaller bioload if you want more fish.

    That doesn't seem to be that aggressive of a tank. The Clown Loaches are differently topping off your stock though. Have you thought about Australian Rainbowfish? They are pretty cool school fish that get kinda big :D

    nice setup there. I would bump up the schoal of clown loaches to 5 or more tho. they do better in bigger groups.

    I just lost two tb's :( weird. They've been in the SA tank for over a year. Also, my Notatus just laid eggs. I'm not going to try n raise them but how exciting. So, as far as stock!? If I don't add more cichlids do you think I'm ok to bump up loaches/ tb's AND add another schoal? Either red/blue columbians or rainbows (not rainbow cichlid) if so how many? I was thinking 6-8.

    Every comment helps! Thanks
