New to freshwater? This is the place to post!

My new tank is cycling(Juwel Rio 400, 5ft 90 gal), 2 weeks to completion. I plan to keep a nice big shoal of cardinals, but I would like some larger varieties as well. Can any one advise what the biggest fish I should go for that will not eat the cardinals.

Also do cardinals breed readily? I plan to attempt to breed where I can to reduce stocking costs. I have room for two small breeding tanks and two 2ft nursery tanks.

Hello Andrew! It depends what you mean by "biggest". Bear in mind, if you're wanting to breed, a lot of fish can and WILL eat the fry and eggs of other fish.

With a little care, research and effort, it's possible to breed a wide variety of fish in the home aquaria: I would recommend looking into what we call a "biotope" - re-creating the environment the fish originally comes from.

Here's a profile link by SilverStarr on <a href='http://allfishforums.com/index.php?showtopic=2222' target='_blank'>Cardinal Tetra, Click Here.</a> This will provide you with basic information to start your research :D

If you feel you have more to add by way of information and pictures, post it in the "drafts" section. One of the staff (usually me) will check it over for spelling mistakes etc, and then move it to the relevant section for you :)

If you were going to re-create a specific biotope and wanted Cardinals then there would have to be other fish from the Amazon. A bit of research on the fish found in the Amazon river will prove invaluable. For a beginner though I would probably suggest the good old Angel fish. You could get a group of 2-4 in there along with a shoal of about 10-15 Cardinals.

Just my 0.02p

Thanks for your reply. I thought Angels were not suitable with cardinals, or was that neons?

That would be Neon as they tend to be alot smaller than Cardinals.

unless the cardinals are a long finned variety (there seems to be a long finned everything these days) they should be fine.

Not answering the question but ... remember . . . water changes can cure many plroblems and stop many from ever getting serious so do yourself a favor and change the water, twice a week is great but at least once a week never forget to change the water. Think of it this way new water is always changed in nature, new water has to be added to the tank also. DON'T FORGET THE WATER CHANGES! Besides this is a way to really play with the tank (because other than maintenance you shouldn't mess with the tank and stress the fish, stress does harm to the fish imune system, thus making it easier for the fish to get sick)
