Hi All

Just a quick question about Endlers

I noticed my LFS just got some endlers and i would love some but I wonder if they would survive in my tank?

I have a 120 gallon tank with the following

1x honey gourami
1x blue gourami
3x zebra danios
1x silver shark
4x clown loaches
2x kribensis (courting) and ready to breed
6x red phantom tetras
2x Egyptian mouthbrooders
2x chocolate chiclids
2x orange head tapajos
2x apistogramma veijitas
2x electric blue Rams
1x gold spot pleco
1x apistogramma rio tefe
4x rainbow bosemani

Any advice would be appreciated

Fufu

Well the rule of thumb is if it can fit in a fishes mouth theres a chance it will be food, and endlers stay quite small, I would say that if you want endlers get a few males and set them up in a 10 gallon tank of their own to be safe, the males are the prettier of the species for endlers the females are pure silver and unlike their guppy cousins they don't carry color in their tail.

Oh ok I see

Thank you nicole4434

I think that would be my best bet and I will do just that

Is it weird though to have multiple tanks?

Lol, nope cleaning 1 tank makes it easier to clean multiple, you already have everything you need. though im not much to compare to many people have more than I do, my main tank is a 75 gallon, then I have a 46 gallon peapuffer tank, a 20 gallon platy fry/snail tank (the snails are for pea puffers) a 20 gallon community tank in my daughters room, a 10 gallon betta, and 2 5 gallon bettas, I find it addicting, but look at it this way the 10 gallon can be cycled easily by running the new filter alongside the old filter for a few weeks an boom a cycled 10 gallon tank, or you take a small piece of sponge out of the old filter and place in new filter alongside new sponge and boom again instant cycle
