View Full Version : Need to split my tanks...

03-14-2005, 06:34 PM
My bf and I have split up, and we need to figure out what to do with our tanks. He'd prefer not to have any of them, to make finding an apartment easier on him. I cant house a 90g, and a 112g at my moms place. I will probably just take the 112g, and store the 90g, so I need your help on what to take, what to give to my lfs. Here is the stock in my tanks:

1 tiger oscar (~8"), this is my girl and would love to try and keep her!
1 albino tiger oscar (~4.5"), he can probably go to my lfs...
1 marble pl*co
1 male con

1 gold severum
1 blood parrot
1 med. kissing gourami
1 juvi jack dempsey
1 chocolate pl*co
1 female con
misc fish-
7 tiger barbs
1 cae
1 rainbow shark
2 dojo loaches

would really like to do tiger o, sev, blood parrot, jd in the 112g...but is that overstocking? what would u guys do?

I would say that in a 12 gallon it should be ok. the oscar severum and bp should get along great, but the jack is just a little more sgressive. what is the footprint of the tank? if its 5-6ft long you are defenitely ok, but 4ft long it depends on the fish's temperment.

it's 5ftx2ftx1.5ft...same as my 90, but a ft longer :)

i think it depends on the individual fish's temperment but the JD may cause problems in that set up.

I agree with the above. As long as the jd is too big for your oscar to eat, you can try it and return him if he becomes a problem later on. Just make sure there is plenty of cover and it might work. It's worth a try. Good luck! :)
