Well--that's about as much decor as one can fit into a tank, isn't it?! Give them time.
I Don't understand. Are you ironic? :?


I will give Them time to get acclimatized.

Yes, just a little sarcastic humor. ;) I usually find most tanks to be under-decorated. They should be quite comfortable with all that cover.

Hi!

Unfortunately 2 fishes are death, but 8 fishes are alive and eat regularly, it is captive breeding.
Now With 8 carinotetraodon travancoricus (in 100x60x60cm) the tank seems empty!!!

Can I add another species? For example: One trichogaster leeri couple? (Or rainbow fish like pseudomugil?).

Thanks.

Help me pleeeease

Ps: in this first period the fishes are calm and isn't territorial. It doesn't "fight". Maybe i have a peaceful carinotetraodon travancoricus!
I know it's reproduced in breeding.

I would not add more fish recently after 2 deaths.

I have done again the NO3 test, with NO3 Elos.

The color is between 0 and 1, but closer to 0.
I think the result is about 0.4 mg/l, but it's hard understand the correct color!

Ps: the fishes accept only frozen chironomus. They don't eat frozen artemia and frozen daphnia.

I'll insist...... Or I'll try live foods.

Some people have had success adding otocinclus to a dwarf puffer tank.

I wouldn't add the others. Having your puffers and the otocinclus would be enough.
