Large South American eartheater

Who plays nicely with whom? Will these breeds share a tank without eating each other? "Dis is da place"

Large South American eartheater

Postby JT » Mon Jan 16, 2006 1:17 pm

I'm looking for a large (4+") SA or Central eartheater to share a tank w/ 3 severums, one peaceful JD, one convict, one friedrichsthalii (dominant), and two Kribs. I'm hoping that the EA is large enough to keep the Freddie from facing off with him and peaceful enough to break up any tension amongst the severums.

Ned, Assuming you think this is a decent strategy, do you have any large EA's currently in stock?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
JT

AC Hekelli

Ned, I picked up one of the AC Hekelli's last Friday. Beautiful fish - thank you.

One problem (mine - not yours): He hasn't eaten anything since he's been in the tank. He seems to have adapted pretty well. I removed the one fish that was bothering him, and he appears healthy - just not eating. I've been feeding them medium sized cichlid gold floaters. I also tried some veggie flakes and something called "platinum" flakes. Any suggestions?

Also the gravel's a little big for him, but he has started to pick up and spit rocks (no more than two at a time).

Thanks again,
JT

he should eat anything...try some sinking food or frozen food...also try turning heat up to 82 degrees F.
