new tank new fish

someone gave me the tank, light, filter and stand. i kept half the water because the tank was very established.
the tank


synodontis cat


severum


green terror


so far they are settling in. the cat and severum have started eating. i THINK the green terror is eating the sinking pellets but he wont eat the cichlid pellets. gonna try out a different food for him after work.

Cool tank! What size is it? Also, I love the severum. I've always wanted one but I've never had the tank space or compatible fish. But yours is gorgeous

What type of cyno is he? I had an eypterus for 28 years (my dad got him 3 years before i was born) very hardy fish and intelligent. As far as i can tell from the pic he will outgrow his lair in a few years you might consider getting him a larger cave for a future moving.

The green terrors grow up to a max of 30cm(usually though they stop around 20) When they reach maturity they became quite the aggressors. They like to dig and guite usually they might even up-route plants (especially when grown).

Dont worry that he doesnt eat them yet. Those fish eat a wide variety of foods but sometimes it takes some using into them.

Nice tank, may i ask the size though? The severum looks to be a green which can max out at a foot in length. The cat can also get big depending on its species. The GT can get i believe 8-10 inches and can have nasty attitudes. My concern would be if there is enough room for the two large cichlids to establish separate territories from one another.

i took its measurements and its 50 gallons. i do intend on A. getting a bigger tank down the line. or B. giving one of the fish away to a friend of mine once it outgrows the tank. i figure i can keep one of the cichlids and the catfish in there.
i tried to pick out a female green terror to keep its size down.
the severum is a little pig. eat everything i put in there.
the green terror is still being picky. but its very active and pooping so i guess its eating off the floor when im not looking.
not sure what kind of catfish it is. its marked as "synodontis catfish" at work so i know that much.
i didnt like the red at first its grown on me.

thanks for the nice words everyone. the fish are finally not afraid of me and swimming freely. except the catfish. he just hides.

Are you sure its not the opposite? They are known to be the friendliest of chiclids. Do you know what subspecies of severum he is? I cant tell from the pic.
