Got excited about my new fish. I have a 4 ft long 55 gal with 2 ac 70 filters and a Kroalia circulation pump. Plenty of rock work with hiding spots.
Fish stock:
8 white top hara
8 yellow labs
6 williamsi north
All are juvies cept the labs are maybe 2 in. long and growing. I've tried catching to try and bring the number down to 6 of each spieces but man after 2 days of trying to catch the little guys I've thrown in the net. I kinda exceped some attrition but there thriving I think. Will 22 fish make it in this setup or should thin the heard?
Thanks Bob

No rush at all man, you got a good length tank, let them grow up see what happens, also if they get really accustomed to you like my fish, I can pretty much scoop them out with ease if I had to. Which I don't, they're just not scared and used to the routine

I like your stock list & also agree with the others. The haras can be a little tricky to(visually) distinguish males & females.

By no means doomed. Remove rejected males as they pop up. It'll be easier - they'll be in the top corners.
Is this true!? If so, top advice. I have 2 labs that I am not sure about but when they are not fighting each other or the dominant male they are in the top corners. This could be the answer my sexing conundrum!

What about the tank corners combined with fighting each other and the dominant male? Must nearly add up to both males right? :wink:
