how did you suspend those pieces of wood up there?


Thanks unissuh Very Happy

I simply placed them against the front and the back panel. They are still floating a bit, but they can not sink much more because of the rocks.

Regards, Dusko

I have made my final decission Very Happy

I chose Puntius denisonii as the centre peace fish, even though I know they do get up to 15 cm.
This aquarium indeed is a bit too small for this always swimming specie which needs long aquarium to spread their "leggs" Wink
The reason I went for them anyway is that we are planning to buy a bigger apartment and I am, as soon as we move in, fixing a bigger tank (400-500 litres) where I intend to keep these Denisoniis.
I have researched around and they do need approx 1-1,5 year to reach to 10 - 12 cm, depending on the temperature and amount of feeding that is.
If I see them growing much faster and this aquarium being to small for them I can any time return them to the LFS I work at.
At the moment they are only 5cm and I got 9 strong ones.

My final stocking list for this denisonii grow out tank is;
9 x P. denisonii (aquarium bred)
3 x Garra flavatra (aquarium bred)
Probably a few Neritina Zebra snails to keep the wood and the background clean from algae.

Here are a few photos and videos;



Garra flavatra



I love this Echinodoris rubra developing totaly redish new leaves which turn green once matured

I added 4 Parotocinclus jumbo to the tank to help in cleaning the algae;


P. denisonii wondering who this new guy is Very Happy


The Garra flavatra is starting to show off their real color;

The panda garra is stunning dusko! Have you noticed it going for your other fish at all? Heard some stuff about them having rather nasty attitudes...
