Hello all,
I am in the process of downsizing from my 180 to a 90 due to moving. Im trying to figure out what to get for the new 90.

I am very interested in a Midas and was curious if I could add a Carpinte with it. I also have a vieja Syn, which I could part with if needed. I know All three probably wont work. Any other suggestions are more than welcome!! I am looking for color and fish that are owner responsive.

Thanks.

A 90 with a Texas and Midas-it could work but may be risky-what are the dimensions of your tank? ( I could give you a better answer)

I believe a carpinte is similar to a texas but not the same.

I was also considering a female festae and the Carpinte if that would work better. Trying not to end up with just one fish in the tank, haha.

Thanks.

If you're not aiming for just one fish in the tank, then forget the midas ;) A pair of Tex would be nice. Mixing the female festae with a Tex (if it was a male) would be asking for hybrid babies though, so depending on what you're after, you may or may not want to go that route.

Yea i guess im still not exactly sure which way im going. Looking for suggestions. I will have a 90 and a 40breeder to work with. Unless I keep my three in the 90 and do something else with the 40.

heres a pic of my current main trio to make this thread alittle more interesting. My vieja pays more attention to the female dempsey than the EBJD.

its inbetween a Festae and a Midas, I got a poll going in another thread. Its pretty close call. I wanted the Lyonsi but they were pretty expensive to get here.
