Could you not house 2 EN's together Shelly? I've always been under the assumption that you could house ENs in groups

Tried 3 together and my big guy bullied them. Not sure how he'd manage with another one? He doesn't like company Lol the one my hubby looked at is only 3 inches and my guy is 9 so it's a big difference. I could say yes quite easily ☺

55 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon vampire shrimp, green lace shrimp and snails.

Hubby nearly came home with the baby elephant nose he's been looking at! Looks like we might be adding a third tank soon 😊

Crazy busy as usual.

Pretty much think the huge tank this round is a no go.

But I really want Discus. Pretty much my lifes dream. So still keeping my eyes open.

Found at least one tiny shrimp in the 12G Blue Velvets tank, which is a relief since I was down to 10. I am getting a handful new BV breeding stock if it looks good this weekend .

Been shopping around for some new shrimp more nano fish and will have to see what turns up with it.

Moved a few corals which maybe were getting TOO much light instead of not enough.

Killed a nuisance anemone today on one of the frag plugs, carefully.

Filled SW tanks for evaporation.

Tried freeze dried meal worms with all the fish and they loved them, I was really surprised.

Making a plants for a heater and mini powerhead trade this week.

Here's my bichir guarding over one of the little guys, you can see like three yellow dots in the background where more of them are.


Going to try growing them out to about pea sized or so and start trying to give them away to whoever will take some.

Really like this pic!

Found 2 dead rcs in my elephant nose tank today 😯 so I'm now on the hunt for the remaining shrimp too move them into my other tank. Wondering if they're getting starved as my amanos really don't like to share 😈
Went back to my LFS and the baby elephant was gone 😢absolutely gutted. So I'm now wondering do I add another tank or buy a bigger one for my guy and maybe add more!

You could always use it as a grow out tank then add it to your main tank.

Thought that too, every elephant nose I've seen are so tiny next to my guy so it would definitely get bullied. A grow out tank is probably the best thing.
