Yes I know he will outgrow the tank, I’ve had him since he was a tiny fella.puffer boi said:common plecos get too big so you will need to rehome.
he will get stunted so he wont grow too big...Kyserkelly said:Yes I know he will outgrow the tank, I’ve had him since he was a tiny fella.
When he gets too big I will rehome him. He is fine at the moment
I’m not getting defensive sorry if it comes across that way.Lorekeeper said:No need to get all defensive.
He's right. That fish WILL stunt, and it WILL be painful. Just because your father did it doesn't make it right.
White Clouds are cold water, and aren't compatible with the other fish in your tank. They also need larger groups, preferably 6+.
Most of the time, gouramis and bettas won't do well together either.
Thanks for the info will definitely be looking into some of thoseaussieJJDude said:When you ask for stocking ideas, except to see suggestions - regardless of current or proposed tank mates.
In saying all that, what are you looking for? If its to fill out the tank, I'd suggest swapping the pleco out for a bristlenose - common pleco except mini! - and a school of cories.
Id also reccomend swapping out the whiteclouds and doing a school of tetras. Some that come to mind are cardinals, as well as rummies, embers, green neons and black phantoms. Even rasboras - like lambchop or harlequins... If they not to taste, and looking for something a bit more uncommon I'd suggest pencilfish or some of the uncommon tetras- like reed tetras, or ornate or rosy tetras. Bloodfins would be another suggestion. Pristella would also work IMO.
Another fish I would suggest are kuhlies - in replacement of the cories - or whiptails - in place of the common pleco. So something like this:
4 honey gouramis (get a cute shoal happening)
20 tetras/rasboras (I'd suggest one big school, but if you prefer you could do 8 of one species and 12 of another...)
10 cories or kuhlies
1 BN pleco/ whiptail
IMO, I would also consider setting up a seperate tank for the betta, they dont do well with gouramies and the mix is prone to having problems.
Sorry for being snappy with you the other day,I appreciate your feed back and will take it on board. I meant no disrespect. Its very hard to get a straight answer to any question, each question asked spawns ten more ha ha. It can be very frustrating.puffer boi said:common plecos get too big so you will need to rehome.
Its 190litre its in the title of the threadInitiate said:Thw wcmm need to be rehomed they like cool water similar to goldfish while the other fish are very tropical. What size tank do you have?

Sadly, even though they might survive in warmer water, it'll shorten their lifespan.Lorraine.Kelly said:Its 190litre its in the title of the thread
Wcmm are also ok in tropical water, they are actually good tank mates for bettas and ive had them years these 4 are the last of a 13 strong school i have had for years so they aint going anywhere
I’ve had them nearly five years! Lol their life span is five years so after June every day is a bonus for them.Florian Pellet said:Sadly, even though they might survive in warmer water, it'll shorten their lifespan.
