Blast from the past..

Hey hey, been a few years since I think I've posted, kinda got out of the hobby(not completely I had like 5 beta bowls 😂😂&#128077

But looking to pick up a 75g this weekend. So need stocking ideas.

Anyone that may remember me knows my love for the Amph family, however now that I'm a couple years older, and have a bit more money these days, I don't think I'm looking to go the "wet pet" rout.

I was thinking of something colorful, like pair of salvini, or chocolate, and then like some sort of schooling fish to help pluck off any fry. And maybe one cat, like a jag or something around that size.

Only problem is I know a guy who is spawning... Chanco's, trimac's, festae, and Lyonsi...all of which are in my wheel house. And my willingness to slap down the card and give Jeff a call 😂😂😩

Basically I'd like opinions on, if someone who has kept aggressive tanks most of his life(me) try to just switch over to a community or will I get bored? And regret not getting a beastly pair?

Yeah I figured as much haha I am looking to build a 300g down the line. I work for a glass company so getting half inch scrap glass is no problem.

Guess I'll have to find out who has some f1 lyonsi or barred Midas. 😂😂

Hey looks who's back from the dead! It's too late as everyone has left the forum since it sucks pretty bad now... I've got lyonsi fry but couldn't tell you what generation they are as they were local auction fish.

Yeah I see a lot have left and it's pretty dead.

Guess a bunch of adults don't like to be treated as kids haha.

So I'm going to get another 135 so I can have a breeding pair of whatever I decide. Hopefully I can add some small stuff to pick off the fry when they free swim 😂😂👍

Bahahaha luckly all I have to worry about now is my terrible addiction to my "free to play"(not free at all. I could easily have a 5,000+ gallon set up by now for what I've dropped 😩&#128557 app game and my dog. 😂😂🙈

Sooooo.. The 135 is ordered along with a fx5 I still have 2 ac110's that hopefully will help seed it, idk after 2-3 years of being dried up if they will..

Now I've narrowed it down, it's gonna be a spawning pair..

1. Lyonsi since I never kept them.
2. Festae cause well.. They rock.
3. Chancho's(from a local guy in my old club)
4. Trimac's (from same club member) I believe the chancho's and Mac's would be F2)

My problem would be locating f1 for the first two options. I'm not gonna pay for wilds when there is such a high chance for casualties with all these species.

Let me hear some suggestions 😬

I've bred all of those besides Chanchos so they get my vote! I've got a fairly large lyonsi pair now who produce every 5-6 weeks.
