Demasoni Tank plans

Postby Storiwyr » Wed Jun 27, 2012 2:38 pm

So my husband and I are planning on taking advantage of a certain vendor's $1 a gallon sale and snagging two 40B, based on the discussion in the tank setup forum about 40B vs. 55g tanks. Will a 40g work for a gaggle of Demasoni? How many would we want to stock it with, and could we combine them with one other species that would be happy in a 40B (would Rusties work?) or would we be best limiting it to just the one species, given how feisty they are?

Thanks in advance!

I believe it's a 36", will check for sure this evening. How many for a happy bunch of Dems in that size tank? And would they do okay with a bristlenose pleco on cleanup duty?

A dozen demasoni after removing extra males (so start with more than that). BN should be OK.
