    Thought I’d post some vids of my unusual tank. Yes, it is overstocked. I bought all these fish as babies when I set up the tank in 2007 and haven’t purchased a single fish since. The most unusual part of my tank is the variety of fish which breaks the “rules” of much fish keeping advice. I have tiny fish an inch long hanging boldly with fish 6, 7 even 11 inches long. A few oddballs in there as well. Also, many of the fish are, (in just little over a year), larger than most books say the max size is. Finally, click in the last link for a shot of one of the most amazing eartheater cichlids I have ever seen.

    Here’s a list of fish with some video links at the bottom.

    4 Black Bar Myleus “Tetra disco” “Blackear Pacu” (Myleus Schomburgki) over 6.5-7.5 inches
    3 Common Silver Dollar (Metynnis Hypsauchen or Argenteus) 6.5-7.5 inches
    2 Mystery Silver Dollars (Metynnis Mola or Luna) almost 5 inches
    1 Flagtail (Semaprochilodus taeniurus) 11 inches
    1 Silver Distichodus (Distichodus affinis) 7.5 inches
    1 Chinese Hi Fin “Hifin” Banded Shark (Myxocyprinus asiaticus) over 7 inches
    1 Earth Eater Cichlid (Satanoperca leucosticta) over 7 inches
    1 Rosy Red Minnow (Pimephales promelas) 4 inches
    3 Angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare) 5-6+ inches
    1 Keyhole Cichlid (Aequidens maroni) 4+ inches
    5 Pleco (Plecostomus) 5-9+ inches
    1 Royal Pleco (Panaque nigrolineatus) 6 inches
    1 Blue Gourami ((Trichogaster trichopterus) 4 inches
    4 Bumblebee Goby (Brachygobius xanthozona) over 1 inch
    7 Black Neon Tetra (Hyphessobrycon herbertaxelrodi) 1.5-2 inches
    1 Rasbora (Rasbora heteromorpha) almost 2 inches
    1 Darter Fish 3 inches
    1 Bluefin Killifish? (Lucania goodei)
    4 Hillstream Loach (Beaufortia kweichowensis) 2 inches
    2 Horseface Loach (Acantopsis choirorhynchos) 5+ inches
    1 Neon Blue Australian Rainbowfish (Melanotaenia praecox) almost 3 inches
    6 Kuhli Loach (Pangio kuhlii) 4 inches
    2 Ghost Shrimp (Palaemonetes) over 2 inches (body)
    1 Bright red bamboo shrimp

    Good grief that is an unholy mixture but I must say they all look healthy. Just in case you’re unaware the Myxocyprinus will get huge and they tend to do better in cool water.

    Yes I am aware. He’ll eventually end up in a pond. Hifins do thrive in temps up to 82f, btw.
