tankmates for BB gobies?

Postby ComesBack10fold » Mon Mar 27, 2006 4:22 pm

im looking for tankmates for 5 BB gobies, a 1" yoyo loach (who will go in the 55 mbuna tank when he grows up :P ), a panaque maccus, and a pair of guppies.
pH=8.2
temp.=80F
tank size=10gal

preferrably something small, that i can keep a group of maybe a half dozen. semi colorful, semi exotic, semi easy preferred.

maybe a killi, rainbow, or tetra of some kind.

its the fiancee's tank, so im looking for something that'll draw her eye.

i typically feed NLS Thera+A, hikari sinking wafers, and the occasional treat of frozen brine or mysis.

so maybe something that will do well on this diet as well.

this question isnt just for Ned either...anyone with ideas is welcome to chime in. :D

tanks! i mean thanks![/u]

everything ive read about them says that they prefer less alkaline water, even acidic...would they do ok in a hard, alkaline environment, with such a high pH?

if so, those might be what im looking for. theyre attractive little fish!

it doesnt even necessarily have to be a fish you have in stock...i have no problem with ordering something special if need be.

No
the checkerboards can go in alkaline water

but if your worried about that
I also have tanganyikan dwarf cichlids
