I know some of you have dozens of tanks

 

Ive only got two, posting this to remind myself of what I have and Id like to hear what everyone else keeps :)

 

125 gallon:

4 striped sd

2 juvie spotted sd

12 sub adult geos

1 banded leporinus

1 adult male red hump

1 juvie satan daemon

8 red tailed hemiodus

6 brochis 6 sterbai

 

3 med sunshines

2 L137

1 adonis

1 L002

1 med L24

1 juvie L25

1 med L190

1 adult L160

 

I know I'm over stocked, but I'm also over filtered and im changing 50+% water at least once a week, sometimes twice. plan is to setup another 90 or 125 gallon in the basement, move a breeding group of geos down there, sell the rest and the SD. get rid of the lepo and the adult red hump

 

46 gallon: 

7 L134

8 juvie uaru

 

plan to move the uaru over to the 125 in the coming months and focus this winter on putting together a proper breeding group of L134, moving the tank away from the high traffic area of the front door

 

SO whatcha got?

Its hard to get food to the plecos with SD's in the tank!   I have at least a dozen striped SD's and food rarely hits the floor.  I need to cut the group in half.  All in a 125g.

F1 altifrons need to get some better snaps. the trailers arent as nice as yours, too many bitey characters in my tank

ive taken to feeding wafers first. the sd's grab em and chew on em like big cookies. everything else gets down to the plecos. and ive got alot of rocks/caves/substrate that things get caught in for the plecos

yea i've heard people say the same, lots of fish/tanks and it feels less like a hobby and more like a job

my friend had a tank that I set up for her, lots of nice fish and lost everything but the tin foil barbs during the power outage

 

i've got my two tanks pretty dialed in 

totally forgot I have a school of 8 red tailed hemiodus in my 125 as well, only remembered as one jumped out yesterday as I was watching a movie. washed him off with tank water, and he seems fine now lol
