Well it's been a few years but I'm back! :silly:

I bought a 180g tank which is going to have a eheim 2262 hooked up! B)

Here is my stock list that I'm planning... What do you guys think???

1x Red Oscar
1x Green Terror/Gold Saum
6x Silver Dollar

I'd be getting them all at the same time, that way they can hopefully figure out the pecking order without too much aggression.

Good? Bad? Let me know!

Thanks

That's a pretty good stock. I would recommend getting a saum slightly larger than the oscar since they are much slower growers.

Sounds good! Thanks - what do you think adding a JD? Overstocked when they become full size?

I would pass on the Dempsey. More of an aggression/compatibility problem than overstock imo.


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

Rather than add the dempsey, I would increase the school of the SD to 8. If you decide against keeping the SD school, you can add a severum or geophagus brasilensis or a saxatilis pike cichlid like a Crenicichla sveni.

I'll throw a vote for Severum as well. I have a few,they are good looking active fish and good all round community cichlids. Mine live in a big tank with a very big Oscar, everybody happy.

Looks like I'm just going to get the Oscar and green terror with 8 SD to add movement!

Thanks

The eheim 2262 is a sweet machine. Sounds like you will have a great setup. Post pics when you get a chance.
