Jason - South Australia

Hey guys my name is Jason

I have had tropical fish for about 5years now I started from a very small 1ft tank and went up from there I now have a 6ft community tank and love it.

In my tank we have
2 Angle fish
3 sailfin mollies
1 featherfin catfish (I love his so much)
1 ghost knife - he is quite young only about 5cm
2 cories
1 pleco
2 ellioties
4 phantoms
1 discus
5 Algi eaters I can't remember what they are

Welcome to AA! Happy to see you here
Ok, sounds like a good stock, but there are a few erodes with your stock
Cory catfish don't like to be in small groups, you should have at least 4 in that big of a tank
Discus enjoy company
I really hope you are not talking about Chinese algae eaters, they grow huge, and they become bullies when they get big, they will harass your other fish, otocinclus sounds like a better algae eater
Welcome to AA!

You could give something like upside down catfish, or ghost catfish a shot

True, feather fins grow pretty big though, I would add maybe two more

Yeah true Ill look into it. I really want a redtailed gourami there awesome also the ellioties the male seems to scoff all the blood worm when we feed the we put 3 blocks in should we be looking at something more substantial for him (and what is more substantial) or just throw more frozen blocks in?
