COMMENTS

GOOD LOOKING TANK, CREATIVE IDEA. Not a good mix of fish. Will work well for a while. Fish small. These fish will not continue to be peacful as they grow. The oscar alone will grow to 12" in this tank. If convicts mate they will become nasty. overall nasty bunch of fish. Parrots will have no chance, Kribs next. These fish will also dig in substrate and pull plants and decor apart as they grow. They tend to redecorate tanks to their liking. fish avatar
