    I was told keeping lots of catfish makes you MORE attractive. Maybe you don't have enough tanks yet?

    Good luck!

    On a more serious note, the the stocking plan seems pretty dense. It's not always an issue but sometimes they need more privacy to spawn. I'd highly recommend not using closed end caves until the fish settle in, especially in the mixed species tanks.

    Ok thank you, I’ll keep that in mind. Chances are, there will be more tanks added. I’ve separated species from the same genus on purpose to avoid too much stress and even possible hybridization.

    I'm curious about the theory behind this Adam . What's the difference if the caves are open or half closed and what's that got to do with fish settling in ?

    My guess is if there is any fighting the losing fish has an exit on both ends vs being caught in the back of the cave and getting beat up on.

    I shouldn’t be surprised, but you never cease to surprise me! I’m really looking forward to seeing this fish room come together!
