Updates And Additions To My 800
Posted 13 February 2016 - 09:14 PM
Still have the Leichardti (about 18cm)
Replaced the roof tile with a couple of drift wood prices and lava rocks (thanks to substratum) and moved the Australis plants to surround them

Currently waiting on the arrival of two (male and female) snakehead gudgeons, (ordered through the fish room)
And going to add a log for them to live in.
Also there's a gold spot pleco who loves the drift wood (and might I mention was in fine form today)

The tanks scape is great, lots of space but still nice to look at. Those Snakeheaded Gudgeons will make the tank really pop, gonna be a good looking tank once they all mature

With the species you have it is important to maintain open swimming room but at the same time remember that the barra will eat anything it can fit in its outrageously big mouth:
The leichardti might also decide it doesn't want tank mates...A little more cover might help on both accounts and will certainly help keep your fish chilled out and feeling secure...
You may have some frustration at feeding time with two active feeding predators and two not so active feeders. Just requires some patience. but still a pain in the butt.
These fish will create a lot of ammonia and ultimately nitrate so make sure your substrate is easy to clean.
Im really excited to see how your tank comes together as the fish grow into it and your ideas evolve too.
Thanks for posting. I love seeing native tanks especially here in Perth
