Rosy Barbs chasing/ rushing around tank. #1
Hi guys,
I have a 300l temperate tank. A have a few species in here but the Rosy Barbs seem to have suddenly become very erratic. I have a bachelor group of 6. ( Not intentional. When i bought them their color was duller so i assumed i had a few females). Up untill now they have been docile and rarely ever chased one another. The last few days though they have been rushing around after each other like lil demons - rushing up and down tank walls and getting a little rambuncious with other tank mates. Especially with the corys. Dont get me wrong, they are not out right attacking the corys but if they get in the way of their ruckuss, they will see them off. I have noticed though that the Danios seem to be chasing each other too alittle more than usual. I am wondering if this is because the temperature has warmed up and they all are in that 'breeding' frame of mind?. I recently added the Corys, who are also chasing one another alittle and seem to be 'pairing' up. I hope that the Corys recent appearence has'nt upset the tank and the behaviour is due too natural circumstances.

What do you all think?
Thankyou.

54litre/ 14 gallon stocking. #2
Hi guys,
I recently aquired a 54litre/ 14 gallon ( for americans). So i wanted to do a little tropical set up. Im used to temperate/ coldwater and have a temperate 300 litre currently set up and running well. The previous owner had given me 6 very young female guppies to put in it along with some of their original tank water. They are doing fine so far, no issues. But i was wondering if there was anything else i could put in there to add a bit of color. It is not a rectangle tank, it is cube in shape. So im unsure if that matters stocking wise.

Any suggestions wil be well recieved :).

Anymore fish for 300L?. #3
Hey everyone. I have a 300L coldwater tank. I had been keeping fancy goldfish but fancied a different direction. Originally thought about tropical but heard it can be expensive to keep a big tank heated. So decided to look at smaller coldwater fish.

I have had Danios and WCMM before with some Variatus platy in a smaller tank. It was a lovely mix. But now i have a much bigger tank, i am thinking of stocking ideas. I currently have just added 8 Zebra/leopard & gold zebra Danios and 6 WCMMs.

I did want to put some Variatus platy in but ive been reading they actually prefer the tank abit warmer (20ish) and maybe a gentler water flow. I am undecided what i can add next. Any ideas?. Perhaps just more Danio/ WCMM combos?.

Thanks.
