    So, I’m seeing a little blotch of unused wallspace and I’ve ordered an AquaEl Leddy 60 (Isit any good?) to solve that problem. 

     

    My grocer has Homaloptera tweediei in stock, but my original plan was a small group of Gastromyzon. 

     

    So my question is:

    Can I have a small group of H.tweediei AND a small group of Gastromyzon together or is the space to scarce?

    If yes: What species of Gastromyzon would go best with the H.tweediei?

    If no: How big of a tank would i require in order to house them together?

     

    And I’m not 100% sure it’s actually H.tweediei, because they were sold as H.smithi from the same grocer before. 

     

    Thank you in advance!

    I can add that they have the following species of Gastromyzon in stock, so you know my limits. 

     

    G.punctulatus

    G.viriosus

    G.stellatus

    Is that the 60x30x30? On the small side but doable IMO. A 30 inch tank like our 20 long would be better. Smithi/tweediei wouldn’t matter which. They aren’t particularly social ime so 2 or 3 would be fine with maybe 6 or so gastros. I like all gastros but at the moment am partial to my new g. viriosus. Hard to say what the g. punctulatus are? All of those will appreciate clean, well oxygenated water with some movement. Share some pics if you get them.

    I’ve kept all these species before, just not in such small tanks, so my concern is if it’s too cramped… I have my concerns but if you think it’s okay i might just try it out!

    And yes, it’s the 60x30x30! :)

    These aren’t fish that need a lot of space imo, but more is always better :) . I have a standard 15 gal – 24x12x12 – with several sewellia elongata and several h. leonardi. With a small group of d. tinwini. Seems to work fine. I’d have them in a 30 inch tank if I had room.

    That is true, clever scaping is more important. My last group of G.viriosus were kept in a tank with some Crossocheilus reticulatus, thé tank measured 125x50x50 and had about 90kg of boulders in it. 

    Needless to say: I never saw them.
