Oddball additional to existing Malawi tanks?

Postby eric1115 » 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
125 all male Haps, Mdoka, Malawi Gar
100 all male Peacock,German Red, OB
75 Mbuna, Red Top Zebra, Yellow Lab

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.
