A budget shellie tank in the making.

9 years 1 week ago #32253 by dragonkeeper
Julies and Shellies won't do well in a tank that small. The shellies will take over and the julies will be at the top of the tank.

Shells can be gotten at most craft stores locally. Sometimes you can find them in the GCCA classifieds. If you remind me before the classic I might be able to rustle some up for ya.

By the way that tank will look great once the shells are in it. One suggestion if I may, I would add some more sand. Shellies are master earth movers.

Also if I don't add any dither fish could I add a pair of Julidochromis marlieri (Gombe)?

Hello all, I just wanted to let you know that this will be my very first African cichlid aquarium. This is just a dry run because I still have a number of things to do before I fill it. The first and most important is silicone the diy background to the the aquarium, which by the way is a 16 gallon bowfront. The rocks are just what I had laying around and I have to say that even thought I wish I had some more of the black river rocks, I am liking it for the most part. I made a diy powered sponge filter, but I am not sure how it will look once the tank is all setup.
As for the fish I have pretty much decided on Brevis and I am not sure about whether I want zebra danios or not, but that's my choice for now. I thought maybe congo's but I think this tank is a little small for them. If anyone knows any dither fish for this size tank that would do better and make this tank more of a biotope setup, please let me know.

I am on a very tight budget so If anyone knows where I can get any of the items listed below for dirt cheap locally please let me know.

Shells- a hand full or two at the most.
Sand
And of course the Brevis themselves.

Thanks for looking and please post any of your comments and advice.
