the kid is back!!

Post by Drake-tripod on Tue Jul 03, 2012 10:25 pm

so i have no tanks up and running its been like 6 months im dieing. Its time to get back in the game i wanna turn my 45 tall into a tang tank. but i need some stocking help i am for sure gonna want to have this a tank with fish in each column of water. I'm going to go shellies on the bottom not sure of species yet but im gonna get some thing different of course. For the top water column i wanna go some kind of cyp maybe? or what do you guys think? What ever i end up picking they have to do well in a smaller group due to the fact its only a 45. What do you guys think?

Hey Derek, long time no see.

Sounds like an interesting tank size. Looking forward to seeing it develop...

Hi, Derek! Glad to see you back on!
How about a pair of gold occies, they are awesome little pit bulls of a fish
(mine bite my hands if they get a chance), with shells and deep sand in one area, a nice rock pile with some julidochromis (my faves are J. transciptus) and a few A. calvus or A. compressiceps?
My 55 gallon has a pair of gold occies, 2 comps, 2 calvus, 3 N. helianthus (a pair? and an odd one) 4 julies, and a BN. Tank sometimes looks a bit understocked, but everyone is getting along. The occies have spawned a few times, but I haven't saved any fry from them. I tried some other small Tangs in there, but they didn't really work out well, this mix has been very successful.
I have sandy areas, 3 rock piles and some Crypt wendtii plants in the. Lots of big and little shells, too, the Altos often like to hide in the larger shells.
