What tank size do you have? It sounds like you need a pretty large tank to house all those fish.Walkerxiii said:This is my stock list
2 strawberry aulonacara
2 bristlenose plec
2 elephant nose
1 German blue ram
1 gold ram
1 red parrot
2 blue acara
Are you planning to upgrade any time soon? Because I would strongly advise to, your fish can grow to pretty big sizes.Walkerxiii said:
Elephant nose fish can grow big, they can grow up to 9-13 inchesWalkerxiii said:I know the sizes these fish grow to as I looked up all these fish before purchasing the only fish I never was the elephant nose as this was my partner who got them. I don't plan on upgrading soon as the only issue I should really have is territorial problems if fish decide to spawn but with my temp being lower than the ideal temp hopefully I can prolong the process
Alright, I believe that they will reach their full size in 2-3 years.Walkerxiii said:Yeah I have been reading up on them lately but will most likely have to rehome once get bigger but will keep them until they do of course. Just need to keep them happy and enjoy them until they get too big
Walkerxiii said:Hey need some advise I have got 2 elephant nose fish in my cichlid tank but all they seem to do is hide. Just looking to see if this is normal behaviour and they don't seem to eat but don't know if they only eat when the tank lights are out?
Have they a cave of some sort in the tank.? They love to hide in them, as there not a huge fan of light☺Walkerxiii said:Hey need some advise I have got 2 elephant nose fish in my cichlid tank but all they seem to do is hide.
