Hey all....first let me apologize about the long post.

I'll lay out the background info first

Standard 48" 75G tank
Water Parameters were perfect.

Old stock list

1 OB Peacock
3 Yellow Labs
2 Red Zebra
4 Acei
2 Rustys
16 Demasoni baby
1 Clown Pleco
1 Standard Pleco
1 Pictus Cat

I had added the Demasoni baby's about 3 weeks previous to what I call D-Day. I noticed my Red Zebra was holding....and then a few days later I come to find all my demasoni baby's dead. I believe my Female Red Zebra was responsible for the deaths. The entire tank was very very stressed and I lost a lot of fish then to what I think was bloat. I was never really able to identify what was causing it.

Anyway.........my stock was devastated and I'm on my way to rebuilding.

I'm back to

3 Yellow Labs
2 Rusties
2 Demasoni
2 Pleco
1 Pictus Cat

If any of my stock list decide to spawn....what are the chances that this could happen again?
I plan on expanding their numbers.....but I'm in a holding pattern right now waiting for a new set of Demasoni fry to grow out.

Also.....is the rock work in my tank sufficient for say 15 or do dems with the labs and rusties?



Thanks,

Neo

I'd blame the pictus cat for killing the dems. It'll do it again, too. Bump your groups of labs and rusties up to around 6 and pull the pictus and you'll be fine adding your new dems.
