    Keeping 2 Female Opaline Gouramis Together?

    I have 6 fish tanks. The largest is the 28g one and the smallest is a 3g one where I keep a betta. @pagoda If you read both of my threads, you will see that the tank size mentioned in the thread is different, one is 28g and one is 25g. So they are 2 different tanks. I asked the questions and...

    Keeping 2 Female Opaline Gouramis Together?

    Can 2 female opaline gouramis be kept together in a 25g tank if I get them both as juveniles so they get to know each other from young age and grow together and gets accustomed to each other from young age? Both will be females, I heard that females are much less aggressive than males. @scarface...

    Blue Acara With Gouramis Stocking Question

I have searched other fish websites, most of this say the same thing - the tank requirement for is given for a pair. But some websites also...

    Blue Acara With Gouramis Stocking Question

    Seeing the comments, I have decided to rule out the blue acara completely. Can a firemouth cichlid be added in the tank? It is though debatable, but what I studied on the internet tells me that firemouth is a docile cichlid unlike the other cichlids and that can be added in a community tank. And...

    Blue Acara With Gouramis Stocking Question

    So what I understood from your post, you are saying it's too risky to mix the gourami species. A bigger tank is not an option now. Now in this tank size it is not possible to add a trio of pearl gouramis with a blue acara in my tank. So can I add 1 blue acara and a single female gourami in the...

    Blue Acara With Gouramis Stocking Question

    All the various websites I have gone through, they all say that tank requirement for a single blue acara is 30g. And same goes for a pearl gourami. Most of the websites say the minimum tank requirement is 30g. Even the pearl gourami profile on fishlore days 29g minimum tank size. So do really 1...

    55 Gallon Tank Who Is The Fin Nipping Culprit?

    Guppy and angel fish are not compatible tankmates. I think the angel is definitely the culprit. I don't think the swordtails are responsible as these two males have accepted each other and the male platies. IMO opinion an angel will always nip the fins of any long- finned fish and besides angel...

    Nano Planted Bowl Need Algae Eaters, Horned Nerites Dying

    You can try ramshorn snails. They are not sensitive to water conditions that much and pretty much a tolerate a wide range of water parameters in my opinion. My 2 gallon betta tank and 5 g tanks have ramshorn snails. They breed fast and easily. So even if some of your snails die, you will have...

    Filter Too Strong For Betta

    In my opinion, sponge filters are best for bettas as they don't appreciate high flow of water current at the surface level.

    Also almost every website says that parrot chichlid can be kept with corydoras which is only of 2.5 inch, just .5 inch bigger than the zebra danios. The parrot cichlid will stay mostly from middle to bottom layer of the tank, the cories also stay at the bottom whereas the zebra danios stays at...

Anyway coming back to the question...

    Endlers are endangered, almost extinct in the wild but I don't think corydoras is a endangered species.
