|Subject: combining tanks? Sat Dec 27, 2014 1:39 pm|| |
I wanted to get some opinions about combining tanks. I have 5 small 1.5" L-183's that I am growing out in a 55 gallon tank and I am thinking about putting my breeding pair (L-183) in the same tank. I got the 5 small ones from another breeder in hopes of having genetic diversity in the future.
If I combine the fish into one tank with lots of caves, driftwood and hiding spots would I risk the smaller ones getting hurt or killed?

Less likely. The small ones will not challenge adults so will be ignored. Later on you might have some fights over the territory and to establish hierarchy. But in the future, I'd remove couple of them.

Yeah, no dramas. In a tank that size it will be able to avoid trouble
