75 gallon stocking ideas

6 years 8 months ago #34994 by Fishandcards
Okay, done some more research and thinking along these lines:
Psuedotropheus Saulusi qty: 8 to 10
and
Male peacocks qty: 2 to 3 (looking for red and or green to counterbalance the blue and yellow)
or
Red and/or green malawi cichlids that would go well with the Soalousi (suggestions would be helpful)

I know I am jumping around, but am trying to contend with the desires of a 9 year old while keeping some sanity (both in the tank and the wallet).

Sadly you'll run the risk of hybridization with any mix of peacock or hap groups like Tony said.

well sorry to say buy it is either sulfer heads or sunshine they will interbreed always keep only 1 type of peacock in a tank they are the same just from different locations of the lake and some are man made they are not like tropheus you don't have to worry to much about rock piles and a good breeding group is 2 males and 8 or so females in a 75 gal tank I would start out with 20 fry and then get rid of extra males you can also look in the ads and see other fish from that lake that you can keep with them

I did some digging around - I am thinking Sulfurheads and Sunshine peacocks (going the fry route). Can I keep them together in breeding colonies? For the breeding colonies, is the ratio 1 M to 2 females okay? Can I keep more than one male of the same kind in the tank?

I know some recommend over stocking the aquarium to deal with aggression - would 12 fish be sufficient? I will have two seperate "rock" piles that will have some caves on both sides (no swim through).

I loloked through some haps and did not see anything that was about the same size (4 to 6 inches). Any suggestions if there is still room in the tank?

Any help is appreciated.

well if you want peacocks find out which type you would like and get some fry and let your son raise them up you could also get other fry also and raise them up together like peacocks and some type of hap or some thing you like.

I am setting up a 75 gallon for my son. I was thinking to do an all male peacock tank, but when I started looking into the prices of male peacocks was a little put off. Any have suggestions? I want to stick with Africans (medium to small) and don't want to go too nuts with the cost.
