my aunt has a new tank about 78 gallons and she wants to know what she can put in it, currently there is a blue cichlid i think it is some sort of peacock but that is most likely going to be gone in the near future i will try and get a picture of it. It is already setup but now it is time for some fish i was thinking some puntius denisonii, silver hatchetfish and a small colony of otosinclus any other ideas and by the way i havent had the time to check if these are compatible but i know she will have to put some real plants in soon.
Thanks from across the pond. Barb man
Starting point would be to check whether she lives in a hard or soft water area, and then whether you aunt would prefer a few feature fish or a number of smaller fish in groups.
The fish you suggest prefer softwater and the P. denisonii need a strong current which the other two species won't mind. However Otocinclus spp. can be delicate and are best added to a mature tank with some algae present so that they can graze on the biofilm.
