Can I Add One More? Question

Discussion in 'Aquarium Stocking Questions' started by CaptainAquatics, Apr 13, 2019.

    Hi! As some of you know I have a 130 gallon aquarium and I was thinking “could I add one more fish?” So the current stocking is:

    - 1 Blood parrot cichlid (8 inches)
    - 1 tiger Oscar. (7.5-8 Inches)
    - 1 marbled kissing goramie (5-6 inches)
    - 1 red tail shark (4 inches)
    - 3 lace catfish (ranging from 3-7 inches)
    - 2 pictus catfish (6 inches)
    - 1.bristle nose pleco (3 inches)
    - 1 common pleco (6 inches)
    - 1 firemouth cichlid (3 inches)
    - 1 albino tiger Oscar (not actually in the tank yet, he is still growing)

    The tank dimensions are 4ft by 2 ft by 2ft
    I do 3 water changes a week
    Water parameters are stable
    There is a 40 gallon sump

    And I figure I probably can’t add more but I just wanted to check because there are a few fish I would love to get for the tank :)

    P.S. here is a pic of the tank (it is a little foggy because I am cleaning the sump): image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

    EDIT: if I could get a fish, how big could it be?

    Well.....I would say, it would have to be pretty big, so it doesn’t get eaten!! Nice tank BTW! What would you want to add? Post a list of what you would want to add please!!:)

    Hi! I was actually going to ask about what fish you would recommend! I was thinking about green terrors, maybe some sort of bichir, I don’t really know, what would you suggest?

    Green Terrors would be a hard no IMO, but as long as you got one that's mostly grown up you could do a bichir. I'd go with a senagali bichir since they're not too huge and are pretty easy to get

    Thanks :)

    I agree with @nikm128 , not that I’m really a big fish expert, but I did do some research!!:)

    I am just going to get a seganal bichir for my tank
  8. PheonixKingZWell Known MemberMember

    Ok!! Sweet!! Do you only keep Chichlids? Or do you keep any other kind of fish?:)
  9. CaptainAquaticsWell Known MemberMember

    I actually have everything from cichlids, to Molly’s, to puffer fish, to Bettas, to crayfish, to snails, and many more things (including goldfish)

    Sweet!! Is it ok, if you send me pictures of some of your other tanks?:)

    Hi! Do you think I could maybe add one more Oscar?!?? I saw some really nice ones at my LFS today....
  13. CaptainAquaticsWell Known MemberMember

    I would get a red Oscar so that way I would have:
    - 1 albino tiger Oscar
    - 1 tiger Oscar
    - 1 red Oscar

    (I have a albino Oscar in a grow out tank right now)

    You have all those fish in a 130?
  15. CaptainAquaticsWell Known MemberMember

    I am asking if I could add the red Oscar
  16. Dawn MicheleWell Known MemberMember

    I wouldn't.
