    To be honest, I think 15-25cm would work fine.

    Wonderful, thank you!
    I had a feeling H.hara was something else, more often than not (sadly) the fish I order from Glaser turns out to be other species. But Erethistes pussilus seems interesting!

    I now see that my LFS can get both Pseudeutropius moolenburghae and Pseudeutropius brachypopterus, what are your thoughts about these?

    I’ve thought about Hara, since my LFS can get both H.hara och H.jerdoni. But I thought they required quite a bit of dissolved oxygen and flow?
    P.siamensis is definately a candidate! I’ve been thinking about them for a couple of years but my tanks have always been stocked with less than ideal tank mates. So yeah… That might be something. And if you guys feel that Hara could work in a tank with moderate flow then I have some thinking to do here!

    I’ve thought about it, and it is indeed a valid option, but a bottomdweller would suit the tank more. I’ve yet to find one, though..

    Just saw Gagata cenia on my LFS order list, but I’m guessing they need quite a decent turnover?

    I’m trying to search for fish from the Brahmaputra and I’m having the same problem. Extremely frustrating but hopefully it’ll be solved soon. Been having this problem for three days now.

    Thank you! That was, more or less, what I was hoping for. 

     

    And if I were to go with dwarf gouramis instead, using the 222 liter tank as a species tank, how should I stock it to keep aggression to a minimum?

    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.

    And yes, it’s the 60x30x30! :)

    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!

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

     

    G.punctulatus

    G.viriosus

    G.stellatus

    Everything is actually working out great :)

    The B.pugnax male has released the fry and they have not yet been predated on by anyone. So I have high hopes for this :)

    My concern was the B.pugnax, since I’m quite new in the Betta-game and the B.pugnax is the only Betta I find suitable for commtanks (That is to say, the only Betta readily available in Sweden that I find suitable), but I was not sure how they would react to other anabantids.

    Furthermore, I don’t agree that kissing gouramis are best maintained in a group, as I find the to be great solitary fish. And I don’t agree that a 4-foot tank is big enough to house a group of fully grown specimens. But I could be wrong, I’ve never tried.

    Anyway, it appears to be working out splendidly, since the newly aquired kissing gourami has settled in nicely.
    The B.pugnax-male is still brooding peacefully, and the B.pugnax female pays some moderate attention to the new resident, but no more than should be expected.

     

    Best regards/ Ronnie.
