I used to have a Bichir. They are deceptively good at eating fish almost their own size.

Bichirs are mother****ers. they wont **** up larger deep bodied fish or anything but if you have smaller fish in the tank you probably wont have them for long.

so long as you keep them well fed you can do it but its always risky.


whenever possible with agressive fish i like to keep them in a single species tank. always had my jardini by himself and my bullseye snakehead was with a wolf fish for a little while but he was mostly alone as well. i dont have either of those now but my wolf is all by himself. i dont get how people could keep stuff like a wolf fish or jardini arowana with other fish and not expect them to eat everything eventually.

r_racer: looks like a java fern. probably the easiest plant to take care of ever. they grow fairly slow but they fill out nicely and add good color.

Hurricane sandy killed all but 2 of my cichlids. Luckily plaecos are pretty resilient, he's been in a hibernation of sorts, he occasionally moves when he gets nipped but I'd be pretty pissed if he died he's the only thing that lasted through everything. Lost 1 group of em to hole in the head, and another to Irene, and 75% of the 3rd to sandy/getting overly territorial.

Edit: stopped over my parents house my dads tank has 2 breeding pairs he's about ready to start transferring they youngins into another tank. As of right now his tank is littered with little orange dots swimming everywhere

went to the store to get a couple plant cuttings and some rummy nose tetras for my community tank, left with a Jardini (Well not really, i need to pick it up in a couple days from one of the workers houses).


**** lol. looks like i have to buy massivore/hakiri floating pellets again

also got 6 salt and pepper cory's for my community tank. i think i might have to move them though, my rainbows are being incredibly aggressive towards them so far.

It might not necessarily be over stocked but the mixture you have doesn't work and is causing undue stress upon the animals.

The beta should be solo
The African dwarf frog shouldn't be in their.
The algea eater is likely a pleco and will out grow the tank soon.

Another pro tip is,

Many times they will sell other sizes than the ones listed at a dollar a gallon.
Examples can be
20 gallon hexes, 30 gallon turtle tanks, 10 gallon bowls, etc.

They will also limit you arbitrarily if you try and buy a ton if say 10 gallons to finish a rack.

that doesnt mean that food was necessarily reaching the pleco. its best to feed them with something that will actually sink to the bottom. i normally use algae wafers or some kind of vacation feeder.

also if anyone here lives in the philly area i have a 46 bow set up with led lights and everything for decently cheap. i know i probably wont get much attention here but i havent gotten any good offers so far anywhere else.

Petco dollar a gallon sale is going on now

It's likely cheaper to buy new then buy a led bar off Craigslist or aquabid.

Anyone have any tank mate recommendations for a flower horn?

He's still at the local fish store right now (paid for) and he'll be going into a 75 gallon tank once I get back from class in 10 weeks.

Just looking for some recommendations on stocking.
