A glass that is full has no room for water.

I will try to work things out. Sorry about all the trouble I can get a little carried away at times. Especially if it has to do with fish.

I'm the same way but always research! Research! Research! Before buying fish. Or you could be leading your new fish to become dinner.

I did find that out I added 3 cichlids to the cichlid tank a while ago the first to immediately refused to eat anything but bloodworms and soon died. The third started a fight and I didn't see him for a while. Was rearranging the clockwork later and I found his skeleton behind a rock in the back. Also I don't know if the cichlids and rainbows will work out, I woke up and found one rainbow dead.

Here are the stocking lists:
10 Gallon Freshwater
Guppies x4 (2 Males, 2 Females)
Black Neons x5
Black Kuhlii x1
Baby Albino Bristlenose x1 (soon going in 40 gallon)
Baby Upside Down Catfish x1 (also going in 40 gallon)
40 Gallon Freshwater
Zebra Danio x3
Bloodfin Tetra x4
Betta x1
Giant Danio x2
Rainbow Shark x1
Bolivian Ram x1
Blue Ram x2
55 Gallon Cichlid
Hi Fin Spotted Pleco x1
Yellow Lab x1
Blue Acei x1
Jacobfreigby Peacock x2
Ruby Crystal Peacock x2
Calico Mbuna x1
Ropefish x1
Australian Rainbowfish x3
55 Gallon Saltwater
Yellow Coris Wrasse x1
Longfin Fairy Wrasse x1
Lawnmower Blenny x1
Engineer Goby x1
Black Axial Chromis x1
Ocellaris Clownfish x2
55 freshwater*
These mbuna are aggressive and shouldn't be kept with the peacocks. The rainbows will be mbuna food and should be moved. The rope fish has no business with that stock either. The plecos are pretty big waste producers. Like I said, a lot going on here, borderline unethical based on your replies from this whole thread.

10 gallon*
This sounds overstocked IMO. Also why let guppy fry be born just to be eaten, if you don't want babies keep just the males.

40*
A lot going on here too. Caleb explained it pretty well.

You stated that you "keep interesting" mixes of fish because you don't like keeping the same fish, well its more about what your fish need then what you find interesting. Good luck and listen to the more experienced keepers advice(others, me not so much) and keep in mind at 14 you may think you know it all but there is much to learn. Best of luck and maybe you can come up with a plan that will benefit your fish.

I keep bettas too and that sounds like stressful betta environment. How much flow is in the tank? My dragonscale attached below.

Let's take it one tank at a time.

10 gallon is overstocked but it is manageable.

40 gallon- this IMO is the primary focus that needs to be fixed. The Betta is like 80% of those problems. Rainbow Sharks are best suited in a semi aggressive aquarium.

The flow is in the opposite side of the tank at the top the Betta doesn't go near it.

I see your being told all over the forums about your cichlid problem. I learned this lesson the hard way too.

I know people who have full grown peacock cichlids mbuna and Ropefish all fine together. And the Ropefish can fit in places smaller than the cichlids.

Cichlids are considered advanced fish for a reason. The wrong combo and you could end it in a bloodbath.

Sorry for the disruption. This post was unnecessary.

Let's try to be nice so as to not get the mods on here. Peacocks and Mbuna are not "advised" to be together. It's not impossible, just not recommended... Peacocks and haps work most of the time.

I have heard of ropefish coexisting with cichlids, but again it's not recommended because the ropefish can get pretty beat up.

You can take our advise or not, it's your tank. We care about the well being of the fish I hope you do to. I'd set down and assess what needs to be changed about each tank.

Don't be sorry. We have provided accurate information to the best of our abilities and that's all we can do. It's his decision whether or not to accept the deficiencies in his tanks. We can sit back and laugh if a thread pops up in the future about problems though.

Good luck sir. Hope all goes well.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry too much honestly. Obviously no interest here of following forum rules whatsoever from OP.

Yeah I could've been more respectful and should've seen sooner that he didn't really want my input. Wish you the best Noah, I won't interrupt your thread again.

I'm sorry for not listening to you. It's just I have spent hours, days, weeks trying to find as much as I can about fish trying to be the best caretaker I could be and I denied your help because I refused to let it go to waste. I also waited 6 years to get cichlids because I new how difficult they could be and I gathered as much info as I could. So I have a suggestion how bout we just try to get along... for once. lol
Oh and I love your oscar, Patty.
