You do understand that I am not stocking the 5g, I am stocking the 29 right?

Okay, I have decided on the Celebes Halfbeak. And of course now that I am excited about this fish, someone is bound to tell me the negatives.

They are interesting, but not really what I am looking for.


I noticed nobody has brought up gouramis. Do they do well in groups? Or are they more solitary?

It's 21" tall, I'm not sure if that's "tall" or not, but assuming it is, what other species would be compatible with a pair of angels? (Assuming the angels aren't breeding)

The only reason I say 3" is because smaller fish (such as tetras or raspboras) I can keep in my 5g.

Reading around, I think I've been using too much yeast. I will try again with 2 cups sugar and just .5 tsp of yeast.
If that doesn't work, I'll need more advice on this thread.

Reading around, I may be using too much yeast, and it is diminishing the sugar too quickly.

I'll try again with .5 tsp and if it still doesn't work, I'll need more advice on this thread.

Daily diluted dosing?

Let's say I dose 12ml K a week, is there any problem with dosing a diluted solution of ~1.7 ml a day? Or do plants need the periodic concentrated dosing?

I have looked into those briefly. I had a julidochromis a while back, and I believe those are plant friendly, but they also dig like little miners.
I love the nannochromis and apistos too.

I had hatchetfish at one point and they all ended up on the floor within a few days, poor guys.
