Oddball additional to existing Malawi tanks?

Mon Apr 06, 2020 5:53 pm

Hi
I am not sure if this is the correct place to post but since my tanks are all Malawi tanks, I will try post here first.

I have an all make 125 7” tank with the following fishes in it.

Red Empress - 3 inch
Albino Dragonblood - 3 inch
Albino Taiwan Reef - 2.5 inch
Fusco Hap - 3 inch
Protomelas Spilonotus Mara Rock -5 inch
Iceberg Fryer
Blue Dolphin Morii - 4.5 inch
Aristochromis Christyi - 4.5 inch
Lethrinops Intermedius - 4.25 inch
Malawi Gar - 5.5 inch
Mylochromis Lateristriga - 5.5 inch
Placidochromis Milomo VC10 - 5 inch
Placidochromis Electra - 6 inch
Placidochromis Tarzanian Star Sapphire - 4 inch
copadichromis Azureus - 4 inch
Redfin Borleyi - 6 inch
Large BN Pleco

I also have a 100 with all male Peacocks and a 75 with MBunas.

I recently just inherited a 55 with fishes in it and I was wondering if any of them can go into any of my tanks.

The fishes in it are
Tiger Barb - 2.5 inch with one eye missing
3 Cory catfish - 2 inch
Gourami - 3 inch
Stripe Raphael catfish - 2 inch
Spotted Raphael Catfish - 3 - 3.5 inch
Albino Bichir - 5 inch
Tire Track Eel - 6-7 inch

I know some of these probably too big for the 55, so wanted to see if some of them can be incorporate into my existing tanks.


Thanks

I would suggest that all of these new fish would be better off, being rehomed, than to go in your tanks.

Thank you Fogelhund, If I were to setup a tank for them with other fishes, what is the minimum tank requirement and what other fishes I can have with them?

Fire eels can get very large! I believe in the 3 feet range?! I would think an 8foot tank minimum just to house the eel... however, I do not have any experience with them.
