Biotodoma Cupido

Postby Discusluv » Wed Jan 10, 2018 6:16 pm

I am adding a group of biotodoma cupido to a 180 gallon tank. At the moment the vendor only had four, but had planned to order more. Would like assistance in determining how much more would be good. Also, I have read conflicting recommendations regarding the temperature that is best ---anywhere from 75-78 to 79-84. I set it at 80 degrees, thinking that somewhere in the middle may be best?
Currently tank has:
12 Phenacogrammus aurantiacus
8 Hemigrammopetersius pulcher
18 Hyphessobrycon pulchripinnis "orange red"
5 geophagus sveni
8 brochis splendens

4 cupido biotodoma ( how many more concidering the above stock?)
Temperature?

Thanks.

80F works well for my Biotodoma tank. I’d say you could at least six more. Here’s a link to a good article on B. cupido:

I have one in a community tank. He is so nice and calm and doesn't bother any of my other fish. I want more but I'm afraid there will be aggression.

Added 6 more-- however, they ended up being b. wavrinii and not b.cupido. Really nice fish though.
