What's the next fish you're getting?

Crispii

Probably one more altum angel if I see one in the tank by itself. However, I really want to keep a pleco in my altum tank, mainly L240.

Pretty Pleco, I was browsing Plecos today on the web, I thought about a L046 Zebra Pleco but they need 86f+ too warm for any of my tanks.

Ooo fun!
Bolivian Rams
Pearl Gourami
Platies
Rummynose Tetras
Neon Dwarf Rainbowfish
plus some kind of Corydora I haven't decided on yet
There's so many Cories to choose from, maybe "too" many
 

vyrille

I'm looking for more panda garra to accompany my lone one. and maybe some sort of filter shrimp. and maybe some kuhlis while I'm at it. Still deciding on what to do with the 55 gallon I have running, so there

Let's make this thread a recurring thing! Gush about purchases to be.
Oh and do post pictures of what you got!

Jealous about the snakeskins, I've yet to see those at an LFS.
On my current list (though most designated tanks are still in the set-up phase, so not sure how soon they will be bagged)
- Chocolate Gourami x5
- Liqorice Gourami pair (will have to specially request these, and then make a choice which ones! Three species currently available)
- KuhlI x4 (need more to round out my existing group, but most of them I see share tanks will ill or poor looking fish and I don't want to run risks with scaleless fish that are hard to solo QT without making them more ill)
- Cardinal tetra x2 (I feel like the school I have is *just* a tad too small for them to be truly comfortable)

Tentative as in, definitely will get, but not yet decided on timeline, tank, etc.
- African Butterfly Fish
- Aphyosemion Australe pair
- Apistogramma AgassizzI fire red

Not sure why all my obsessions start with an A?

And not a fish, but I need to replace my barclaya. It is my favourite aquatic plant and was thriving in my main tank, but it suddenly died a few months ago for unclear reasons. Still sad about it, time for a new one!

The place i'm going is a Maidenhead Aquatics, one that's a bit further than my local but it's bigger and better. They had Snakeskin, Sparkling, a bunch of different Three Spot colours and previously had Liquorice and Chocolate Gourami, it was heaven. Not to mention the amount of Cory variety.
I too will make sure to get Kuhli's, i've had 2 for who knows how long, I keep forgetting about them lol.
I'll be sure to post pics, by the 9th i'm going.
 

Momgoose56

A whole 125 full of different schools of rainbowfish, and 2 or 3 groups of Cory's. In my DREAMS. My water is only good for marine, brackish or African Cichlids!

Awesome Keep us posted! How far is it?
And those poor kuhli's Though my small group seems to be doing fine in a small tank with lots of surface cover, all confident and stuff, despite their lack of numbers and their dwarf cichlid tankmate (in fact they seem to boss over the cichlid instead of the other way around, bit peculiar).

Going to a convention soon, no one idea what I find there but if I end up bringing something home, I'll report here Secretly hoping they'll have liqorice gourami or wild betta, but I'm doubtful.
 

Momgoose56

Now I'm curious, how bad is it?
pH 8.2, dKH 7 (60), dGH 16 (300). It's desert water. Squeezed from cactus and stone!
Livebearers and bettas and a few others do fine. One species of Cory do okay and I've had clown loaches and kissing gouramis and a couple species of rainbowfish. Giant Danios do okay also. There are actually plenty of fish that do okay in this water, just not the ones I want lol!

It's a 40 min drive there but it's tough when you don't drive
My Kuhli's are the same, I see them out and about and they don't seem too stressed. They're in with my EBA and Moonlight Gourami neither give them a second glance.

I have 2 fishes on my buy list and one on my wish list:
kubotaI loach - lfs hasn't had any the past 6 months but they tell me they will occasionally show up.
pearl-scale platinum angelfish (one day I'll take a road trip in search of these)
-
zebra pleco is on a wish list - i'm not going to pay $246 for one - they are now being captive bred so maybe eventually they will drop to a more reasonable price. Btw for jinjerJOSH22 I believe 86 is the top of their temp range and 80-86 range seems to make them temp compatible with angels, rams as well as cardinal and other tetra.
--
Thinking of pleco I did grab a flash pleco for $9 about 6 weeks ago - this is an interesting fish. Mine is a bit shy but over-time is becoming human friendly. I currently have it in a 29 but I guess when it grows up I'll need to move it to a larger tank. They stay small like bn pleco but not super small like zebra or clown pleco. I personally prefer large tanks with smallish fish.
-
I'm not sure I would get another bn pleco given some of the interesting pleco out there - now if someone would sell some zebra pleco for $9....
-
Another fish i'm interested in is king tetra. Our lfs has not had these in a healthy state yet. They seem to get them in once every 8 weeks or so but the ones they get tend to die before they leave the lfs.
 

jinjerJOSH22

The sites i've looked at say 86 min up to 89, I honestly don't know much about them other than they are beautiful and stay relatively small. We can get them in the uk for about £90, I couldn't justify spending that much on a fish, well at the moment

Zebra Plecos are fine in 78 degrees F. 86 is the very high end.

For my mbuna tank: super red top hongI and a Maison reef would really finish the tank off. For my peacock/hap tank, I really want another lemon jake, some more OB's, and dragon bloods! Ugh its too hard having self-control and not buying the entire lfs.

Getting 3 of these this month to add to the new 20 gallon community set up I got coming. Maybe. I'm still juggling options. But so far...

https://angelfins.ca/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=28343_28349&products_id=4162
Thinking 3 boys. I got a handful of female livebearers as it is, so adding more females may get me in over my head with babies. Got girl platies and mollies who spit out plenty of babies as it is.

Plus going to add 2 more snails (mystery or apple, let's see what the store ends up giving me hahaha last mystery I bought ended up being an apple snail that eats all my plants)

(While researching ive fallen in love with kubotaI rasbora, wasp catfish, and the idea of adding a second farlowella, but alas I'm all stocked or the current set ups aren't ideal for these options)

But seriously, wasp catfish
If I had the space left in my 46 for yet another bottom feeder... lol

That's a cool catfish

I'm glad I got my Farlowella, an impulse buy that I don't regret

I saw them online and read into them, but saw that theyre fairly delicate so decided against ordering one online... fast forward picking out some other fish at a store and there's a tank full of juvenile twig cats, and the biggest of them going to town all over the front glass... I brought him home right then and there and I have no regrets either. One of the coolest fish. Though many people may find them boring as perhaps its a more sedentary fish lol supposedly. Mines pretty active.

Mine is a farlowella vittata and a young male. He will get between 7-9 inches long.

This was him at the store

I haven't any space left in my tanks for more fish and can't really set up another tank at the moment, so I'll have to do it vicariously via this thread.

Not having any space left doesn't stop me planning nice tanks in my head though ha ha. Currently thinking about a nicely scaped, cherry shrimp, nano cube.

I have a list for my 55 gallon tank that will be put back into use here very soon. Since it will be a warm water tank 80-82 degrees, I'll be going with either German Blue Rams or one of the color morphs, Cardnial or Rummy Nose tetras, Sterbia Cories, and then maybe some Burmese Boarder Loaches. I already have 2 Burmese Boarder Loaches in a 100 gallon tank that where sold to me as junvielle Yo-Yo Loaches. I got lucky on that deal.

And him yesterday
Mine is a Sturisoma Panamense or Royal Farlowella. I was hesitant because I heard they where sensitive also, I'm not saying I'm a bad keeper but if I can keep one alive I doubt they're that sensitive.
Yeah mines super active, the way he bounces around is adorable.
 

jinjerJOSH22

Another fish I'd like to get more of: Blue Spotted Hill Trout. (A nightmare to picture, they don't stop moving period)
Also my 10 inch Dojo, he was posing how could I not take a pick?

Its more the shipping process I worried with them. Originally my option was to buy online but I didn't wanna risk shipment lol

Its hilarious watching them try to get around. Theyre so clumsy and its like theyre not sure how to swim

Yes, that makes it a problem I guess no public transport around there?

Ouch >.o yes, that seems hard to work with. Have you never considered and R/O system for some smaller tanks maybe?

awesome dojo, what a monster! Can I ask you how big that tank is?
 

Rcslade124

3 apistogramma cacatuoides, 7 green flame tetra, 7 cardinal tetras. And I'm stocked...
 

Elkwatcher

The inn is full here, no vacancies. I did see a wonderful low "3 in one tank", 5 gallons each with removable stable dividers. Perfect for Plakat's. If I get a new tank another one has to come down though.

There's public transport but honestly you're doubling the time if you use it
The tanks on the small side, it's about 27-30 gallons but it's 3ft long. HI'm and his 7 inch pal seem content and water quality isn't an issue
 

DIYbetta

I’m actually planning on getting a 10 gallon with my betta and ~6 harlequin rasboras. I’m so excited! I wish I could get a 30 gallon, then I could actually make a natural habitat for Queeny (my betta). Idk what ima do about the aquascape, I want to go for something natural....
 

GlennO

I have no immediate plans for new fish but I would definitely buy some Wapoga Red Laser Rainbowfish if I ever found some for sale.
 

jinjerJOSH22

I haven't been to my Lfs yet but In the meantime ordered these online... Kuhlis and Gold Zebra Danios. I was going to get Gold Mountain Minnows but got distracted and miss clicked but I'm still happy with them

The next fish I will purchase will be 5 more pygmy cories. The last fish I purchased was 3 more gold zebra loach. The fish I want to purchase but no one seems to have is kubotaI loach. The fish I would like to get rid of are a pair of bn pleco but they don't seem to want to leave.

Just got back an hour ago from my LFS picked up 2 Roselime Barbs and 3 more Bolivian Rams

Forgot to mention picked up 6 white-fin rosy tetra. Really like these - I have them in a 29 with 5 black angels and 4 kuhli. They are a bit shy of the angels (even though they are nearly the same size) but the past week or so they've gotten a lot more bold. In the process they've learned the angels are wimps. Soon they will be hearding the angels...

I got this beautiful thick-lipped gourami yesterday! I’m still in the process of stealing your idea! I’m up to 4 pearls, and 3 thick-lipped. I’ll probably stop there, as I’m operating in just a 40 gal. Well, I may add a few honeys.
