Turtleman's All Male Hap/Peacock Tank

Post by Super Turtleman on Fri Jun 22, 2012 1:14 am

I have a 125G all male tank. At first I was trying to keep mbuna in with the haps and peacocks but that wasn't working out. A lot of fish colored down. So I removed the mbuna and everyone started coloring up...except for a couple I have pulled out and are sharing a divided 29G to see if they color back up. I've taken some pics but haven't downloaded them yet, so I'll give you this video for now.

List
Baenschi
Ngara Flametail (colored down...in 29G)
Eureka Red Jake (he got beat up and is recovering...this was an unexpected arrival and had nowhere else to put him)
Hai Reef Blue Neon
Fossorochromis Rostratus
Super Red Empress
German Red (colored down...in 29G tank)
Red Fin Borleyi
O. Lithobates
Electric Blue Fryeri
Firefish
OB Peacock
Flameback
Kribensis
Yellow Kasanga Compressiceps
S. Eupterus
BN Pleco
Albino BN Pleco

Thinking about/hoping to add:
Lemon Jake
Phenochilus Tanzania
Placidochromis Electra
Bucco

You'll notice the Borleyi had a cloudy eye. That's all cleared up now. I have two of the comps in there but one will be being moved soon.

Nice, but be aware that they are very slow eaters and often wither away with more agressive fish in the tank. This happend to a friend of mine although he has a tank without mbuna in it.

Is your signature list up to date? Do you really have an empty 140? Do you have plans for it?

I do have an empty 140G. My plans are to sell it so I can get some money to create a mini fishroom. :-)
