So went out and purchased what I thought were regani.... they arent looks like they are argentea. I dont thinkn I am even going to introduce them to the 150 I dont think they will work long term in there. Im gonna keep all 3 in the 55 until I pick one that looks the best. From what iread they are slow growers when the time calls for it i will upgrade. Right now they are in a ten gallon wanted to treat for parasite (pg) then either tonight or tomorrow will move them into the 55.

If anyone wants the two I dont keep let me know
Just cant keep one tank I tried and failed lol

Never kept Vieja, so obviously I have no input on what you have there. But.. of course one tank aint gonna cut it. Congrats on the new fish Frank.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Thanks dave. Ive been readding about them ever since I got back I to the hobby... they are def argentea which can be very aggressive but are damn cool looking when adults. I wanted a regani in the hopes of adding it to the 150 I guess things happen for a reason. Hopefully the one of the little argentea will look like this


My son wants a heterospilus 4 years old and knows his fish lol. Not much out there on them but from what I read its really peaceful. Gonna try one in the 150

I would never say impossible, there is a guy on MFK who has an awesome one with a tank full of small tiger barbs. Looks really cool. If you raise fish from a small size with tankmates it seems like the chances are much higher to get a compatible mix. At the size of those fish I think you could easily try them out in the 150g and just keep a close watch.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
