    Default Getting Fish No Decor?

    0 Not allowed!
    Im going to go to one maybe two stores to stock up my tank since im finally done with my cycle. Im aiming to get peacocks and haps at around 2-3 inches to start. I havnt got rocks for decor yet actually i wasted money on 187lbs of rock (5 boulders) because i didnt end up liking the overall look in the tank with the light on. Dont really know when i will get something i will like but im constantly going to be on the look. Will i have agression problems until then ?

    Probably if you are dropping them in a bare tank. The first thing they will look for is hiding areas. Why not take a ride today and gather some rocks? I found rocks piled up near farms, construction sites and on the highways.

    You can use the rocks you have until you find better ones. The fish won't care if you like the looks of them or not.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    Or broken [Or not] clay pots which are super cheap, Slate is also. Either would work as a temp scape. You have lots of options.

    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    like stated aboved, if you drop them in a bare tank, they are going to be stressed which will lead to agression, go get something cheap for em to hide in at the least.
