My Community Tank

    To start, I want to say that I know my tank is too small for the fish that I have right now. They are all getting along well at present, the Rainbow shark ignores the guarami, even when it strays into it's favorite hiding place, and the shark only ocaissonally, and briefly, harrasses the Flying Fox fish. I will be upgrading within the year to a larger tank, either to a 50+ and then into a 100+ or directly into the 100. I am also working towards replacing the ugly plastic things with real plants, and adding more driftwood. I'd also like to add that I am aware the Rainbow shark will likely become more territorial/aggressive as it gets bigger/older, which is part of why I'll be upgrading to a larger tank.

    I have 2 juvenile bala's in a 65g tank so I know what you mean. People sometimes like to jump all over you if they see a fish that will outgrow your tank in the next 3 years...

    Yeah, I thought I'd avoid all of those attacks right off :)
    It's now live planted, with 30 watts of lighting. One colour max, one 50/50, plants are mosty liverwort and Riccia
    The rainbow has become more aggressive, not allowing any of the other fish to come close to "his" log.. a not unexpected turn of events. For the immediate future, he'll be remanded to his own 10 gallon tank as I worry about his constant chasing stressing out the other fish. I have in my quarantine a gold gourami, who if she passes quarantine, will move in with the opaline guorami to replace the shark... considering some tetras or barbs maybe as well?
