Hey guys, haven't had a nice running tank in a while and I'm looking to get back in the game. I have a 30 gallon breeder sitting around and I figure that is as good a place as ever to start! Does anyone have any good stocking ideas? I was thinking maybe a few exodons and a pleco or two. Or maybe a couple of rainbow snakeheads. What do you guys think/suggest?

a small shoal of exodons would work. i wouldnt recommend a pleco with them though. you might wanna look into something smaller if you want a community tank. 30 gallons isnt a whole lot to play with. you could raise a single jack, or go with a brackish tank with puffers...maybe switch it up with silver dollars and a clown pleco or firemouths and a few cory cats. ...you see where this is going. you're limited by size but the options are endless.
personally what i would do with a 30 is what i am doing with a 30. raise a single jack. but it really depends on what you want. just browse around a pet shop, do some homework and start making your list of fish you want.
let me know what you decide

I see where your going. Thinking back on it the last time I had exodons I tired adding a pleco and that didnt go to well :( Tank is set up and going to the LFS today to get some cyclers. Thinking about ultimately going with the rainbow snakeheads, great looking fish with alot of personality. Maybe a red wolf fish if I can get my hands on one. Brackish would have been interesting too but i guess theirs always next time. The great thing about the 30 breeder is the large surface area allows for greater gas exchange, so even if it's not that big I incurred that benefit. Will post pics once everything is said and done with!

Hope you have another huge tank for the snakeheads... a 30 breeder will hardly last a few months.

Yes, they only grow to 8-10 inches, but... swimming room is important.
