Lennie Posted January 26 Share Posted January 26 I've been thinking of it for some time, while I've been making lots of research for my new tank stocking plan. I guess we have a consensus that, when it comes to schooling fish, it is always the more the merrier!🙂 But what about the small-middle sized tank centerpiece fishes except dwarf gourami and bettas? Especially dwarf cichlids or maybe angels in low numbers, considering ACO recommends max 4 in a 29g community tank? Do you guys think that only one Apistogramma or one Gbr/bolivian ram etc. are actually happy when kept alone? They should like it in a more crowded group rather than being alone right? Maybe like a harem like other cichlids usually prefer to? When it comes to species like discus, or african cichlids, or sometimes angels, we always say at least a group of X, or 1m:4/5f. What makes rams or apistogrammas suitable as nano tank centerpiece alone other than any other cichlid or fish that are kept in bigger groups but not tightly schooling or territorial. I somehow feel like dwarf cichlids like rams and apistos would not like to be kept alone, but we keep them so they fit in small tanks and don't have big territory/agression problems in there. But do they actually like it in a way for example a Betta does? What would be the ideal of keeping an apistogramma pair/harem in a community tank / min tank size? Would love to hear about your ideas! I'm interested in keeping them, and would love to hear experiences/opinions of yours!🙂 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
