Stocking 4ft, 200 ltr aquarium

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I am planning a new 48in x 15in (wide) x 18in aquarium. My calculations (using the surface area method) allow for minimum of 45in of fish, which I intend to keep to.

This is my current stocking idea:

* Red-tailed black shark [5in] (mandatory -- already own)

* 10 cardinal tetras [12.5in]

* 6 neon praecox rainbowfish [15in]

* 2 paired killifish [4in]

* 2 angelfish [6in?]???

* bottom-dweller / cory catfish [2.5in]???

I'd like to know what anybody thinks of this idea? Are there too many top-dwellers? Are the fish incompatible? I am fairly set on the shark / cardinal / rainbowfish combination --- is the rest of the stocking acceptable? If so, any ideas on bottom dwellers?

Many thanks

Michael

i love the theoretics of this thread, i have never seen it worked out like this...............

i usually only stock a tank relative to its filtration capacity..........

The only fish I would be a but worried about would be

Is The shark and the angles

Angles eat neons in trhe wild but the cardinals my be ok

And the red tail shark can be a bit of a pain when they chase ya fish around

But Hay they may get on well

Yea all I would be careful with is the angel and neons...I bought a rainbow shark at a LFS I will not mention but they are not very good at all...they didnt want me to put my shark with my americans but i thought i knew better...now the shark is chasing all my fish and will not let them near his bit of driftwood!

good luck with it
