PostSubject: How many plecs   Thu Mar 04, 2010 11:14 am

How many plecs do you have in your tanks? and what would you recommend

Most of mine are juvies at the moment

What is the max you would recommend putting in a 120 litre tank and a 400 litre tanks

the 120 currently houses 4 catfish, 8 rummy's and 2 Rams. It currently has
4 x 309's, 1 x L34 and 1 x l059 all juvies

the 400 currently houses 1 large Male Common, 2 female common juvies,
4 x L134, 6 x sterbai, a handful of cardinal and some discus.

Realistically how many bottom feeders / pleco's can these 2 tanks cope with.

Never really looked at this before so thought I'd ask what you guys do.

When some of the plecs get old enough to consider being a breeding group will move them into their own tanks, but that would mean extending the FH which I have no plans for atm but is on the cards later this year / early next.

I have a group of 6 x L144's to find a home for and plans to purchase atleast another 6-10 other ancistrus in the next few weeks.

Running out of tank space me thinks, might have to consider putting some more in with my discus tanks

theirs loads of room for more juvies i normally rear 100 at a time in a 120ltr tank upto 2 to 21/2" but they get a water change every day.
