It's nice, but the aragonite might be a problem as it will buffer your pH over 7.5, and increase carbonate hardness. Most eartheaters prefer acidic water (

if it is a planted tank, then don't use any plastic plants, and as someone else mentioned, you need A LOT more plants for that to be a planted tank.
it is a good tank to start one in though!

Can i put 2 Dempseys 2 Green terrors 2 Convict 2 Devils in a 120 Gallon
kyle jackson » posted 2007/12/11 03:49 pm  
ryan that wiil only work while they are small. i have almost that exact mix of fish in a 120, just one of each. and a jewel instead of a convict. right now im looking to get my gt out, cuz the devil is just way to dominate. that many of those fish, you gunna have a problem after a while. and if two pair up all bets are off.
Roger Hopper (m) » posted 2007/12/11 03:54 pm
I agree with Kyle, They will become way more aggressive if they pair. Even the convicts, tho small.
Ryan Corah » posted 2007/12/11 03:58 pm  
Thanks what can i put in my tank right now i have 2 dempseys 2 devils 2 jewel
Roger Hopper (m) » posted 2007/12/11 04:03 pm  
Ryan, it is hard to say, if they are all one sex you will have some problems, The temperment of these fish maybe all maybe one. You have to watch ths aggression and see. Some may have to go. I would try one of each fish I think. Unless you are wanting to breed.
kyle jackson » posted 2007/12/11 04:05 pm  
ryan you gunna have to watch the devil the most, they are gunna get a lot bigger than the other guys,and alot of times these guys will not let any one in the tank with them.
kyle jackson » posted 2007/12/11 04:13 pm  
ryan i htink if they are small right now you can put them in ther together, just watch how the pecking order takes shape, but you most prob. gunna have to find some of them homes later.
Ryan Corah » posted 2007/12/11 04:32 pm  
Right now the divils are verry small to small to eat feeders but still aggresive if i take the devils out would it be ok to have 2 dempseys 2 jewel 2green terrors and 2 convict
Ryan Corah » posted 2007/12/11 04:37 pm  
would like to
kyle jackson » posted 2007/12/11 04:45 pm  
that mix should fit better, still wactch the aggression level. and again any one pair up, its gunna be ruff. my lil jewel gives my jd a hard time, but wont mess with gt, so you never know.
Ryan Corah » posted 2007/12/11 05:02 pm  
thanks kyle
karrie edwards » posted 2007/12/11 05:04 pm
nice
Robert Brady » posted 2007/12/12 05:13 pm  
Red Devils,Jewels and Convicts have a much higher level of agression in my experiance.If the Convicts are a pair watch out when they breed they get fierce..
