Further stocking compatabilty suggestions please?

Postby connemara_man » Fri Sep 02, 2016 8:12 pm

In my 350 litre aquarium I currently stock mainly juvenile haps & peacocks (almost all purchased from Tony). I wish to add further species to the tank and wonder if you could suggest other suitable tank mates? Further rare species would certainly be considered.

I am fully aware that some of these fish get extremely large but when the tank eventually gets overstocked I also have a Rio 300 litre aquarium always up and running so am fairly well covered for a good while yet.

Otopharynx Lithobates Orange Dorsal
Copadichromis Ivory Lundu Reef
Copadichromis Firecrest Mloto
Cyrtocara Moori "Albino"
Protomelas Steveni Taiwan Reef
Aulonocara Baenschi Benga
Placidichromis Phenochilus Tanzania

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

Heya, did you look at the tetrastigma? They're absolute beauties! I'm a big fan of the linebred fish that Tony and Clare do, did you look at them?

Again I have never stocked that particular species, but maybe I am being a bit unfair as I have seen a few videos of males who have been particularly feisty to say the least, so am a bit wary. Maybe I am doing them a huge disservice?

Do you have experience of protomelas spilonatus tanzania? and if so, what is your opinion on them. Incredible looking fish :tu:

No personal experience i'm affraid. Mate if mine has some in his main tank and is a big fan. They're not aggresive yet hold their own against the more aggresive linebred species.

The tetrastigma i do have experience with and getting more delivered of Tony tomorrow. I'm a big fan, they're smaller then the lithobates. But its a species that even when coloured down looks stunning.
