    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

    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

    Yeah I know exactly what you mean when you say it's addicting lol.

    Yeah cycling won't take too long either

    Thanks for all the advice
