So right now I have cichlids in the tank (finally found the email from the breeder with the type they are convict cichlids) but they will most likely be going to another home with a 55 gallon tank to them selves and possibly a few other fish soon, so I am looking for ideas of new fish I keep,and I need your guys and gals help and opinions with stocking the tank.
My dad and me are not really beginners anymore as my dad has been keeping fish for years and we have always had fish so we are able to keep fish that need a little me care than beginner fish.
So here are the details of the tank:
-27 gallons possibly a little more,longer than it is tall
-Eclipse filter (built into the hood)
-gravel (purple in colour but I may change it)
I also have a crap load of decorations but I don't think that really matters,I do have a small piece of drift wood tho, and thats the only wood I have as I'm not paying close to 50.00 for a small piece of wood, so preferably no fish that need the wood.
I was thinking live bearers (guppies,platies,mollies etc...) but I would like to have semi-aggressive fish possibly.Or a community tank with a couple different types of fish.
So one set-up I was thinking about was:
-1 trio of guppies
-1 trio of mollies
-1 trio of cory cats
-a small school of tetras
-some shrimp if I can find them
Or some Endler livebearers if I can find them 2
I can also do a brackish water tank as I have had brackish water fish (they died of an illness from the aquarium store)
I think I mudskipper would be kinda cool but I have only ever seen them once, and I would have to find someone who has them or could get them.
I wouldn't mind having something that also comes of of the water living in the tank (i.e I could have a really big rock or something floating around or protruding out of the water).
My mom whats Angels but they prefer taller tanks, if I am right and my dad want parrot cichlids but that tank not big enough.
Oh and Bingo the BlackSkirt tetra livings in the tank also
What do you guys think?
And here's a picture of the tank now so your can get an idea of how it is.
