  1. American Stocking question

    Thanks guys. Yeah I'm thinking of going with the tapajos and heckelli 3 each. And just some either fish as well.
  2. I've recently been cycling a 4 foot tank. External canister filter and wanting to get some Americans. I'm thinking 1 each of the following. Salvini .  Tapajos. Firemouth. Heckelli. Ellioti.  Maybe 2 of each but want to make sure this would be compatible?
  3. Sick Fish Tank

    40% water change. Nitrates fine ph 7.5 no signs ofor physical illness. Fish not breathing fast or anything . Fish still dying 1 at a time
  4. Sick Fish Tank

    Hey all.  Posting for a friend. He has lost a few fish lately. Ph and temp is fine. Nitrates are low. Water changes once a week and feed twice a day. This gold ram is acting sick. Does anyone know what it might be and the remedy? received_10156521072883835.mp4
  5. African Stocking Question

    Very nice. Yeah mine is about 105 gallons and so far they all have plenty of space. Will see how they go . Will possibly get a second filter and I do a 20% water change every week. Feed them once a day and every second day twice 
  6. African Stocking Question

    This is my set up. So far the frontosa is fine. As you can see they have a bit to grow. Once they get too good will either get another tank or sell a few. The 7 bar Frontosa I know will prob have to go 
  7. 50g acaras & rams?

    Personally I wouldn't put the tetras with the Acura.  Esp if they are a breeding pair they could hurt the bolivian and eat the neons. I had a pair of green terrors and they eat all my Cory's once they started breeding.  All depends on their temperament  though
  8. African Stocking Question

    At the moment a peacock is the most aggressive in the tank. Chasing the dragon bloods and mbuna that I have . If i get a second filter should I stock more fish to ease aggression or just keep changing the rocks?
  9. African Stocking Question

    It is a fluval  406 400l. That enough?
  10. African Stocking Question

    The measurements are Length - 150 cm, Depth - 45 cm and Height - 55 cm . I have a external canister filter 3 parts in it and plan on getting a second at some point, i do 25% water changes , yeah the Frontosa isnt that big im thinking of putting him and a couple more in their own tank at some stage, not sure how fast they grow? 
  11. Hey all, Got a 4 x 2 x 1 Tank with canister filter etc, have about 25 fish ranging from peacocks, dragon blood, electric yellows, flameback, Maingano, eletric blue and 1 Frontosa, all are around 8-9cm and they all seem to get a long fine, but long term is that too much or is it possible to put a few more in?
  12. I.D please

    Thank you. Any idea on the other 2?
