I have this tank set up as a grow out tank, I currently have the marble convicts in this tank. The is the one Male(dad) and about 13 babies. The mother was killed by my female jack dempsey. The tank has no substrate, the only plants in the tank is java moss for the babies, and a piece of drift wood. The tank will be emptied in a few weeks after i bring the babies to a LFS.
This is my new community tank, and I like it very much.
Substrate - The base of the tank has 1lb of red clay, on top of the red clay is organic soil with pea gravel mixed in. Finally I topped it off with some eco complete from my 100gal(mostly for color at this point).
Aquascaping material - 4 pieces of Drift wood, and a few black rocks
My female has been perched on a rock in my tank for the past few days. I woke up today and turned on the light only to find her "missing". I searched the tank and finally found her on the ground next to some of my plants. I picked her up and moved her to a rock again. Her belly is bloated and I'm not exactly sure whats wrong. Could she be constipated? Im really hoping its that rather then egg bound.....I know constipation can be cured with peas and garlic. Any help would be nice.
I am getting a 150Gal tank, I want to make this a Dwarf Cichlid community tank. I want to know what you all think about tank mates, and apisto stock. I want to have as many different varieties of apistos as I can. I was also thinking of about 20 rasboras, and a few neons as well as possibly some angles? Idk though, let me know what you all think. I dont plan on using rainbows again =/
