View Full Version : Stocking 72g

I'm about to be setting up a 4" 72g with 20g sump.

I have a jack dempsey and a raphael cat that will be rehomed to it, but I want to add more fish too.

Does this stocking setup sound like it will work?

Male Jack Dempsey
Raphael Cat
Turquoise Severum
5 Buenos Aires Tetras or Giant Danios

I would like this to be a planted tank so I'm not sure about the severum yet.

if its going to be a planted tank, the Jack Dempsey will have to go because they will dig up everything you plant.

Well I already have a Jack Dempsey so I guess I'll have to throw out the plant idea.

If I got a pair of firemouths, would they be a threat to my jack dempsey if they decided to breed?
