View Full Version : Restarting my 90

07-24-2010, 09:23 AM
Hi guys, need some suggestions. I am restarting my 90 surf line tank. I currently have a 180 Africans and 55 community. Here is my delima. The Africans are a little too aggressive and the community is too boring. I am looking for colorful specimen that are somewhere in the middle. I prefer non aggressive fish.

Any suggestions? Please let me know. Thanks for looking at my thread.

How about Killifish? They are always on the hunt for the next meal.

Greg, Let me know when the second Rotkiel batch is ready? I'm converting my 55 community into a SA tank.

Excellent choice with the geophagus - you'll love them. We've got our first batch growing out in a 125 with three severum, including a pair from Greg, and the columbian tetras we got from you.

Greg's severum are awesome and the babies are growing phenomenally on NLS and frozen food. I need to post some pictures.

Give me more info on the sevrums!

Yask is getting the Geophagus from me because 6 of them are way to much for my 72 gallon.

Could I do a sevrum or two in the 72? Your red shoulder ones are beautiful!

Yes, and Yask severum get toooo big for a 55 if you want to keep them in there long term.

In a 72 they would do really well. I will have another batch ready in two to three weeks. They moved up to full size brine shrimp and ground mysis shrimp a few days ago so the growth happens very fast now. I will post when they are ready.
