  1. Thanks @B_Man and @l2h, but I need the Angels to be the centre piece of the display. So far since adding the Rummynose and the Apistogramma, I have really enjoyed watching them.
  2. @JB I am running 3 x 406 and an FX 6. Filtration isn’t an issue!
  3. Cheers, didn’t know that!
  4. Cool, two species of tetra too many? I was thinking 40 Rummynose and 40 Serpea Red
  5. So I have split the tank in two. The right hand side is red gravel, which I will eventually plant out. The right will be river pebbles. I have a border between the two areas which has so many caves and hiding holes. The river pebbles will also have load of spots, to hide in. So far, the four Apistogramma have been really active, no aggression amongst themselves at all. The Rummynose tetra are my sons new favourite as they “pack” together... Plan is to add more honing places for the Apistogramma, add pebbles which I’ll grab from a landscaping place somewhere. The Bristlenose is doing its thing. Looking forward to adding more fish next weekend, planting the red gravel area and seeing what it all looks like. I think I have planned out the areas well, Angels up the top with the Tetras, Apistogramma down the bottom with the rocks and caves. Will eventually be planted and have a few spots to hide. I guess I need to think about the next type of tetra to add.
  6. Added 10 Rummynose Tetra, 4 Apistogramma Agassizi “Double Red” and a Bristlenose
  7. How many Angels? Tetras?

    Giant Pink Gourami – Billabong Bayou

    @Grover65k how goes the pond? Long time no update for me! Any issues with the solar heaters? How did you go with the removing of all the Goldfish, I think I remember you were going to try getting rid of them a long time ago.
  10. Thanks @gingerbeer and @johnbetta. When you say one square foot, I am terrible with geometry (?) so in a 6x2x2 I could have 12 females? Not that I would, but am I on the right track? Severums, will they be too big compared to Angels? Angels are the "centre piece". Someone else mentioned Discus and Angels together, I just feel like Angels would be too aggressive for Discus. Thoughts?
  11. Hi all, I am looking at stocking my 6x2x2 with Angels and others. Someone mentioned Apistogramma, maybe L Number Plecos. Any ideas from the brains trust. Stocking numbers? Low maintenance is the key.
