[Killietalk] 100 gallon question
A couple of months ago I bought eleven 2" Blue Gularis split fairly
evenly between males and females. I put them in a 100 gallon tank that also
had several lonely hearts of different species. The fully grown epy dageti
were the first to go, protruding head first from the mouth of the biggest
and baddest Gularis. Well this morning I am finally down to only Mr. Bad
himself. Who does not deserve a 100 tank. And I thought it was going to be
such an awesome display. So he is moving out, maybe to the floor,
So what am I to do with the 100 gallon tank? I have the following fish
in decent numbers:
Aphyosemion australe orange
Aphyosemion australe chocolate - strain #5
Epiplatys dageti monroviae
Aphyosemion splendopleure Tiko Green
Chromaphyosemion poliaki Mussaka CI 2002 FO
Fundulopanchax gardneri nigerianum Misage
Pachypanchax sakaramyi Joffreville LM94
The spoorenbergi, Misaje and sakaramyi are all fully robust fish and I
think they would do well as a species only tank. All three give me babies
in a natural set up, and would probably self proliferate as well as throwing
off extras for the hobby. Already have the Misaje in a 10, a 29, and a 55
gallon, so I will pass on those.
The poliaki just are not pretty enough to warrant the mansion.
The chocolate strain is quite pretty, but I wonder what a tankful would
look like. The orange australe are quite nice, and I was thinking they
could do well with the Tiko Greens, and maybe the dageti.
But a big tankful of the spoorenbergi or sakaramyi would be awesome.
Both species are always up front and center begging for food.
Any suggestions or votes?
