Setting up a matching 40 breeder to the one I already have. They'll share an ATO reservoir but have separate sumps. Just finished the plumbing except for drilling a return.

Almost there. Anyone see a problem keeping maxi/minis with a peacock?

Lighting requirements would be my only concern. I'm not sure what the requirements of the maxi/minis are but peacocks cannot have high lights.

That was my only concern also.

Maxi minis don't require too much light IMO.

You could always try it out and if it roams to much, bring it back or resell it. The LEDs on my light are dimmed down about halfway and my purple and green maxi has tucked itself into a little hole, vertically. It's not getting too much light.

 

 

Maybe I'll frag a part of it, and if it survives the initial fragging I'll send it to you as a test at the cost of shipping.

That's really nice of you but I don't want you to stress an established animal for a test. I'll grab a cheap one locally. Thank you though!

I'll get more pics once he settles in. Heard him breaking something up last night. Could have been making himself comfortable or grabbing a midnight turbo snail snack.

Love these guys. Thinkin about turning my smaller nano into a mantis tank. I know the peacocks get pretty big, so I doubt I'd get one of those. Are there any other that are just as colorful that would be suitable for 12 gal that you know of?

Some species that can be kept in smaller are the following:

G. Smithii

G. Viridis

N. Wennerae
