Re: Grayed out garras fighting or what's up?

Like that, maybe even more gray/white. First time I saw it, they are the two biggest ones of the 13 I have. Thanks! :)

Grayed out garras fighting or what's up?

Two of my biggest Panda garras are grayed out and having a go at each other. All colour is gone on body, just gray. But the fins are really red. Fight club or?

Not a good combination to have these frogs with any fish, the frogs poop is strong stuff - lots of ammonia. Its best to keep them in separate tanks.

I went and checked on the fish at the LFS again yesterday. Definetily Stiphodon sp. and probably elegans, or at least looks like them in some pics. So the size would not be an problem. I have to reconsider these :wink:

I don't remember which species it was, not even sure if it even it was a Rhinogobius sp (Looks more like a Stiphodon sp.). But the size was ~8cm and I would have bought 6 and to me that is too big for a 63L tank. Especially with and fish which you don't know the exact max size. I have one river flow...

No, I talked myself out of it :D I would have put a spraybar. But the biggest issue was that the species was "unknown". So after googling a picture that somehow matched, there was a possibility that they would get too big for a 63L tank. But it was the first time I saw this kind of gobies live, very...

Planning a Rhinogobius sp. tank

I'm getting six Rhinogobius sp. in a few days and setting them up in a 63litre tank. Would an Eheim 2252 be too much, 1200 L/h?

Have good aeration and they should be fine. Some tips for cooling are to take the covers off, switching off light during the day, have a fan to blow on the surface if possible. These tricks help a little.

There is a Finnish aquarist forum, where you can get answer even in English. I live in Vaasa so I have no clue of good shops near Rauma. Check out http://www.aqua-web.fi/

And welcome :)

Thanks all!! The negotiation with the seller went good, got 50€ back and a Eheim 2252. I'm not sure if I'm going to add the 2252, it's extremely powerful. :)

New tank update (again)

Some updating. We moved to a new house and as normal procedure when moving, you get a new tank and a bigger one. :) I got this used 540L with dimensions 150x60x60. It had arcadia T5 light with 4x54W tubes. The silicone was changed because it was in terrible condition. Also I found that the light was...
