Tank mate queries

Postby bibaswan » Thu Oct 13, 2016 1:07 pm

I want to add some fishes to my 3feet tank.
At present is have a pair of Severum, a parrot and a discuss,
What can I add to this lot?
I am thinking of a pair of oscars, or a koi carp

Actually they have been living together since they were babies... Hence no aggression at all

The tank already has a high bioload, best to remove the parrot. The rainbowfish there is a schooling fish you might add 6 more of them. Don't even think of adding oscars. Keep the others undisturbed. Is the discus really okay?
For bottom dwelling species, you might try to add 4-5 bengal loaches (sold as queen loach in Galiff)?
Also, with a high bioload, you have to do frequent water changes.
Nice severums, BTW.

Raphael catfish are also interesting bottom dwellers.
