scarhbar created the topic: I'm at a dilemma! Here are some pictures!

Well guys and gals, some big changes are happening in my life! We are having little Bella Grace next May:


and I'm going to have to reduce the number of tanks I have now. Here's the tanks that I am going to take with me:


The one on the right is my 75 gallon and the one on the left is my 10 gallon.

The 75 gallon now holds my Crenicichla Marmorata and 5 Rainbowfish :) He is hard to get a shot of! But here is my best one:



The 10 Gallon hold my shrimp which are mostly food for my cichlids.




In another tank, my Discus are being held. These guys were also hard to get a picture of!



My problem is that I don't think I can take my Pike and my Discus with me :( I love both fish so much!

With the pike, I have a singular, interactive, large fish, that is super friendly and not too common. I love the little guy :)

On the other hand, my Discus have been with me since they were little 2.5"'ers and are beginning to become extremely beautiful fish. I could also add more community fish to the 75 gallon if I chose to put them in it.

Please help me choose which fish to put in this 75 gallon! I need some input bad :/

I personally prefer more interactive fish. And since discus are easier to get...my vote goes for the pike.

Agreed. I would keep the pike. Discus are beautiful fish, but a lot of maintenance.

Think of it this way...what if pikes are no longer available for the next 20 years in your area?
