After adding 2 more reds to my existing 7 I now hve 9 in my 120g. They have never been more alive. They left their favorite corner to swim the entire tank, top to bottom. This is awesome and I recomend overstocking Natts.
Regaurdless of what I previously posted, If this is going to be the best P site, We better get some serious action here. I know there are more than 10 members here. Don't be afraid to give your opinion. Ask anything on your mind...that is what forums are for..........I should be an administrater.
luva40, your encouragement of the board is great. If you were an administrator, what would you do? The time between your posts was roughly an hour and a half. Shouldnt you allow a little more time for an intelligent response on a Friday night?
Regarding your original intention of this thread, I completely agree with overstocking natts. I am not gonna lie, I will probably attempt to put 9 in my 90 gallon. I dont think the 20g rule applies to pygos. My experience is that they are happier and more energetic in larger groups.
Hi.I had 2 reds in a 55 for a year.When they got to 9" they started fighting like behavior.I suspected this would happen so about 3-4 months ago I picked up 3 juvie's.(That's all the stores near me sell)About 3 weeks ago I mixed the 3-31/2" reds in the 55 with the 9"ers.So I now have 5 reds in a 55.The fighting with the larger pair has stopped,and 4 of the 5 school together.They are all alot less skittish now and are MUCH more aggressive when feeding.I don't know how long they will live peacefully together,but it has worked out great so far.
I can't say it enough overstocking reds is a PLUS! I don't follow that bogus uneducated claim of 20g per fish that so many follow like they are some kind of cattle. It only depends on what species of piranha will I go for it. I would do it on piraya but only if they were big.
Once again I told you overstocking was a good thing*wanting to ram this thread up the idiots who think otherwise* :veryangry:
