View Full Version : Need a little advice from the pros
02/10/2007, 09:46 AM
A friend of mine told me of this site. Fantastic place ! I was wanting some input on what I can put into my 75g FOWLR. I currently have a volitan lion, saddle puffer, snowflake eel and a bursa trigger that a friend moving gave us. What I wanted to know is if I can introduce anything else into the tank or is this close to my limit? If i can put another fish or so in can anyone give me suggestions as to what would work?

You will need to get a bigger tank eventually with the fish that you have already, if you are prepared to do that then adding another fish now may be possible - also depending on the size of your current fish.

I would suggest against adding anything else to this already crowded tank. Even f the current specimens are small, they are fast growers for the most part, specifically the eel and lion. Focus on keeping the water quality high and look to an upgrade if you plan to keep these fish to adulthood.

Also watch out for the lion and the puffer, either the lion will eat the puffer or the puffer will nip at the lion's fins. i have never personally owned a saddleback puffer but everyone tells me the bite the heck out of anything that looks tasty enough to eat. i also have a volitan in a 75g and i am already looking to upgrade in the near future to a 180g , just keep in mind that lions will grow really fast in the first 6 months but after that it kind of slows down a bit.
