3xrainbow cichlids

3xO spot bristlenose

5xLampeye tetras

1 more firemouth

pictus or raphael catfish

This is a peaceful set up, plus you can stick in some low tech plants- some kind of val, or a sword or two.

2 male angels

8 male and 2 female congo tetras

And then a few rugged easy to grow plants like val, swords and anubias and several pieces of driftwood

This is what i got in my relatively peaceful display yank tank

1x Salvini

1x Firemouth

1x Chocolate

1x Gold Severum

1x Green Severum

2x Geo Bracybrancus

1x Convict

1x Green Terror

2x clown loaches

1x Sailfin pleco

Salvini is a new addition, ( bit of a gamble ). All fish are males to stop fighting at breeding time

All works well.

On my wish list is Uaru and Borcourtti

sell the firemouth and get some elloti! I hate americans with a passion but damn I almost bought some from Shon982. They are stunning fish! I had to slap myself in the face a few times when i found out they dont come from a particular African Lake.
