2 125s. 1 with 8 mobas gravel bottom for now. going to switch to pool filter sand this summer as they seem to prefer sand. tera cotta clay pots for hiding spots. 3 male BCWP calvus, 4 pictus cats and a pleco for tank mates. Rena XP3 and AC110 for filtration. the other has 16 Kigomas. 12 are still growing out and i am weeding out the males as i can tell. hope to have a group of 8-10 in the end. 4 BCWP calvus and 6 clown loaches for tank mates. salt and pepper color sand bottom. Eheim 2217 and 2215 for filtration. yes both tanks are a bit over stocked at the moment. working on that. weekly 70% water changes on both.

180 w/ 50 sump. Texas Holey Rock and pool filter sand. I may have located fish and will stock this week. 11, 1"Mobas and 5 2"Fire Fin Comps. In the mean time, Ive had a bit of algae starting to grow on the THR. I dumped in about 50 Red Cherry Shrimp two days ago, and the algae is almost gone. The shrimp will probably hide as soon as the Mobas and Comps go in, but will make for tasty treats when they venture out Haha.

I have a 125 gallon tank with 7 WC Mikula 2 male and 5 female. Light brown gravel bottom large river rocks and a piece of drift wood. I run an over flow system in each corner running to a sump. I have a double filter Terra HOB filter. I also have 4 55 gallon and 2 30 gallon tanks with different fish. I keep one of the 55 gallon with a few fish so that if I ever get babies from my Mikulas I will be able to empty it and have room for the babies, but it hasn't happened. It will.....I hope!

Hi.I have a 6ftx2tfx2ft tank,that is 611 Litres.(uk) I am getting 6 mpimbwe blue fronts on 27th May. Not long now! I have a sandy substrate,large granite rocks,which make some caves.I want to add some catfish but I can't get any clear advice online.Everyone seems to contradict everyone else! I was thinking Pim Pictus or Synodontis,but I don't want anything bigger than 4"-5". Any ideas?

Your fronts will be leaving me soon (I'm Jeff!) Best cats would be proper tanganyikan cats such as synodontis petricola or
s. multipunctatus, both quite attractive if you can find them. Otherwise, BN plecs.

congrats on your new group. i know it's a bit unconventional, but i have 4 pictus cats in with my mobas and i've had zero issues with them. synos are great too, but they are egg stealers and they will lay their own eggs for cichlids to raise for them. plecos are also a good choice.
