This is my 200l,
1 Thorichthys ellioti (Female)
2 Bristlenose Plecos
6 Dwarf Chain Loach

What, if anything should I add or subtract?





Thanks

Hi cobraroll,

Your tank looks great; well done.

I would think about adding some cichlids from the Archocentrus genus, perhaps sajica or spilurus. I would also consider rainbow cichlids (Herotilapia multispinosa). I am not familiar with ellioti aggression levels, but the aforementioned cichlids are less aggressive than convicts.

Thanks,
Matt

Perhaps a school of tetras to add some activity to the tank?

My thoughts would be for columbian tetras?

Hi all,

Thanks for the vote of confidence,

Have had a school of ember tetras in there til recently, but on recommendation I moved them to avoid them being snacks for my growing Ellioti.

My female Ellioti is pretty aggressive, do you think a couple of Rainbows would co-habit peacefully if they're the same size or even a little bigger than my bully?

Thanks again,

You should subtract the tank decor and ship it to me. Gorgeous tank! :thumb:

I read a recent post of someone having to remove their Rainbows because the ellioti were too aggressive. I think he had breading pairs though.
