Moved the blue dream and tiger shrimp to the Spec 5; broke down their original tank and did a good cleaning since that will be the new home for my red rili. Their current is over run with scuds which I'm pretty sure are eating shrimplets.
Still trying to figure out what I want to add in with the furcatus and peacock gudgeons. Back and forth on ideas, lots of reading. Currently leaning towards green neon tetras. Any suggestions on something that would work with those 2 types of fish both in looks and temperament would be very much appreciated
I haven't had Furcatus, but I have had the Chilis and Green Neons with the Peacock Gudgeons, both worked fine, but the Neons got bigger than I wanted in there. What about CPD's? That would be a color packed tank.
The Green Neons enjoy swimming horizontally quite a bit. Mine were in a 6.6G Edge (with the Peacock Gudgeons) but they are now with the Cardinals in the 72G and do really swim all over the tank.
The new Angel pair calling them #3 who had eggs, are still guarding them and Koi angel male is sulking in the corner at not having his mate or his corner of the tank anymore. Maybe will try to find another male fish and send the female to a new home.
I just wish they weren't so Cichlid behaving- sort of
I just don't have the patience right now for the behavior of charging and pecking all the other fish in the tank. And injuring others. I know she is doing her job like a true mom but the other fish in the tank aren't enjoying the tank and neither am I.
Gave a tour for the second time in 3 days of my little projects and the tanks and had a fun time doing it.
Deciding to probably change my idea for the 11.7G Mr Aqua tank I am getting Friday and think I will make it a sparse spider DW with moss and plant trees, and Move the CPD's and see if that makes them swim in the middle of the tank. Need to plant a bunch of plants in the morning and place fert caps under a whole bunch of them and more.
The deal for the extra trio of Boesemani Rainbow fish didn't pan out so I really need to get a new batch in the tank. Only one male and female (Boesemani) and he chases her too much too. So I will be checking with the members at the aquarium society for a few of more.
Now that the queen Angel is gone, the Rainbow female's side is healing up. Yay.
Also need a few more Emperor Tetras I only have 3 and haven't seen any more near me.
