Mog has MTS

So I found a deal today I couldn't pass up, there is a guy up the road from me that is liquidating his fish business and had all the tanks in his store for .90 a gallon. Needless to say I got a 40 breeder for 36 bucks The tank had only been used for a few months perfect glass a silicone.

So my question is, what should I do with it?!

Not that I know of Grimm, I just like the foot print of the 40 breeders.

I would go with Calvus and shellies. I kept a pair of Calvus in a 40b for a couple of years.

I kept the Pundamilla's in my 40b, the males are absolutely stunning and their aggressiveness towards other males rivals most CA fish.

That's what the shells are for, it's a little risky but alot of people have success with it. I never kept them together personally but my next door neighbor does without incident.

Hmm I do love the looks of the Calvus, will they need caves and such? could I go like 2 types of shellies and Calvus?

I would add some rockwork piles with open areas for the shellies. Calvus are fairly slow growers so that will give the shellies time grow, but the fry will be toast. That would certainly work.
