Merging tanks - Page 3 - Aquarium Forum
Freshwater Aquarium Photography This is the photography forum for the FW section. It's a dedicated forum to post pictures of some of the things in our tanks, pics of new additions, as well as for great information exchange, tips, tricks, and overall just discussing cameras and photography techniques of our tanks. Learn all about apertures, f-stops, ISOs, macro, flashes, white balance, and anything and everything else that drives us crazy to get a masterpiece shot. Feel free to show off your tanks in here, and plus its a great way for humble people to nonchalantly have their tanks nominated by the other members for Tank Of The Month. Don't be shy!

OK. Their colors are lovely. True yellow is hard to get. I hope you do well with them.

Beautiful tank. I could never do it, but I know what's good. This is very good.
They were fine with the smaller fish, not a problem there. It was the gouramis they didnt like

I'm close to being "plant ignorant" Forgive my mistake. I love the way it drapes loving over the wood.

Re: Merging tanks

Not a clue, they just didn't like them. It was the plant eating that made me get rid of them

I wish you'd figured out why. It would have satisfied my curiosity. At any rate, you didn't need a herd of plant eaters in that tank.

I just thought that you might have picked up on something by watching them. I don't know why either and I'll never will. I certainly didn't demand that you know. And no, you are not a fish.

Really? That is unusual. But if they have been living for that long without and incidents then they should be fine.
Bev, how heavily planted is his tank?
It's a shame they killed the dwarf gouramis :(.

When will you be getting them? They will be stunning in that tank. They are obviously male and female. Bickering between them won't be a problem.

That explains why they aren't fighting.

He showed them in the chat room one night. Planted enough and with CO2 If I recall. And a large group of discusautolinker.com autolinking image.

Really It about the same with macs. Someone told me they needed 75 gallons to a pair, heavily planted and with RODI water to thrive, plus daily water changes. I have proved they do not.

"I've macrostoma tastes on a veiltail budget. "

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Tomorrow or Wednesday

Unless you are seeing something I am not, it is not obvious that they are male and female, certainly cannot tell from the photo provided.
They are not sold as a pair, and really I don't care if they are or not.
