I can tell you that fantail has to go ( out of the heated tropical tank ), I can already hear Bernie scolding you for that ( she got me for it too )

I don't think you have enough room for them swordtails can reach 6" each and they are livebearers so that means alot of babies.

I wouldnt put anything else in there, you are already pushing the limits with the number of fish already in the tank. Those loaches can get pretty big too

I agree with the others Anthony - I would definitely wait until you have a bigger tank. The danios you have will certainly produce fry anyway, if you have males/females, unless the other fish are eating all the eggs.

LOL! Well someone has to do the scolding around here!! but I don't know if anyone listens to me anyway!!

Just wondering Josh - what is it about celestial perl danios? you mention them in most of you posts lately! or is that Dano that mentions them.


Cole! I think you may mean 6cm - 6 inches would be a giant of a swordtail.

You are right, Swordtails normally grow between 5-10 cm or 2-4 inches. I personally wouldn't add any more fish until you know if you are going to get the larger tank.
