RE: Community killie tank?
to advise against community killies although I have had some success with
putting some killies together. I have had Nothos and lampeyes do well
together. I have also tried a 29 gal community tank and it was not entirely
successful. Some killies were killed outright others hid in the plants until
they starved to death.
you get into a community tank, have you thought of a species tank. Think
about a shoal of lampeyes and how nice that might look or a tank full of Nothos
like rachovii or even guentheri. I guarantee you that is a sight to
behold. A tank of gardeneri or austraile is not a shabby sight
doing a species tank you will get eggs or in some cases fry which will make the
tank self sustaining and possibly give you extra fish to sell and help you to
support the tank's upkeep. You will also learn much more about a
particular species of fish when you see several of them interact. My Riv. Agilae
males actually change colors to flash at each other. A 29 gal tank of just
about any killie is worth the trouble.
possible to have a community killie tank, with aphysemions, epiplaties,
aplocheilus, fundolpanchax and the like, all togethor? I have a 29
well established, heavily planted tank. What sort of pH and
I be keeping them at, if it is possible, and how many
altogethor could fit?.
I love killies, but keeping them all in
seperate 10 gallons has kind of
eluded me, so I was wondering if it would
be okay to just keep all sorts of
the species togethor. My local
aqua. society's big fish auction is on sunday
and I want to know what I
can look at to stock my tank. Is this a bad idea?
