So, ended up selling a lot of our fish between November and January for an emergency home repair that we weren't ready for but managed to keep the manueli, elong, and striolatus. Life happens we went from 2000+ gallons of water full of fish down to just under 1000 gallons but all still good and we made enough to cover the repairs. Today just picked up 4 very small rhoms (1-1.5") and 6 baby reds, all going into my 180 to see how it turns out. Not gone but man the place looks different without all the tanks.

I've got several scaley and a couple scaleless creatures living in glass houses full of water in the other room.

You too, I found it easy to get fish to love together for a few months but not much after the 6 month or so mark. My macs were the best I had going, started with 6 all 5-10" a year later there were still 4 but one started beating on the others so I ended it.

if you have a load of other community fish in there it'll probably last long enough until the entire "community" become too big for the 125g

The only community fish in there are the constant supply of guppies(400+)for them to tear apart instead of each other. It's amazing how empty a180 can look with 16 baby piranha and 400-500 guppies

These guys have been together for over a year...and I have no issues in the tank.  I moved them to a 180 so I could move the 500 and they are just fine.  I cant wait to add some cariba and piraya....should be fun. 

 

Im not saying I havent had my share of casualties over the last few years in that tank.....but only 2 have been cannibalized.  1 nattereri that had a bad eye...and 1 sanchezi.  Other then that....been pretty smooth.
