New tank set up

Postby bristlenose72 » Sat Dec 07, 2019 6:28 am

Hi. I have a 120cm by 40cm by 50cm tank.

I want to have a pair of buffalo heads and a pair of Thomasi.

Someone mentioned starting with 6 of each to get a pair. Do cichlids pair up when they are still quite small?

Also, with a new tank freshly cycled and not very mature, would you do one group to get a pair at a time.

I've also thought of a small group of ditherer fish in the form of harlequin rasbora and a few checker barbs. Would these go into the tank first, being perhaps tougher and more hardy? Better able to flourish in a less mature tank?

Any advice you have would be very welcome.

Thanks,
Dom :D
