Stocking questions

Postby Xavi » Wed Apr 04, 2007 10:53 am

I have 2 tanks and would like to know if there might be any future problems with the way that they are stocked.

The first tank is 36 gallons. It has:
5 Brichardi
4 Australian Rainbows
4 Kandangos
1 BN Pleco
Are the Kandango too large for this tank?
Is the Pleco safe in the tank?

The second tank is 61 gallons and has:
3 Kribs (1 male, 2 females?)
2 Upsidedown cats
1 Opaline Gourami
1 Candystripe Pleco
1 Siamese Algae Eater
Is this overstocked?
Is everybody compatible?

Any suggesttions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Xavi

The second tank is 16 gallons, not 61 gallons.

Bushy nose plecos are safe with african cichlids usually.

If anything your tanks could use a few more fish.

In about a year the Red Fin Borleyi Haps will be too big for the 36 gallon tank.

If I removed the Red Finned Borleyi from the 36 gallon tank, what would be a good match to go in instead?

for Malawi
not too much stays small

possibly
any Labidochromis
Demasoni
dwarf C. Afra
maybe Aulonocara

many Tanganyikans stay small
some are true dwarfs
any Shelldwellers
Julidochromis
Lamp Brichardi
Lamp Caudopunctatus
many others

I'd go Tanganyikan
