I want to know if the plans for my 125 i will be getting sound right. the main reason i am getting this tank, is my for my parrot, and carapo. Here is the fish i already have to try and make the stock from:
55G
8" parrot
10" carapo
4" pictus
2" jack dempsey
3.5" red devil
3" albino bicher
4.5" sengal bicher
2.5" kk parrot

other 55
7" syno. epterus

here is what I was thinking of doing. put the carapo, big parrot, rd, and syno in 125, and let the other cichlids grow out inthe 55. also, get a 20 long and growout the bichers for the 125. Fish I want to get for the 125, is an 18" ropefish, needle-nose gar, maybe a fire eel, large green terror.

Could I pull off putting them all in the cichlids and fish I was planing on in the 125? would the 55 still be ovverstocked if i left the ciclids in? what can I do?

overstocked IMO

your KK parrot will also be a problem due to size

Just a little bit over. But as long as you have the filtration then I say go for it. You may have problems with the KKparrot the JD and the RD due to territory, but then you may not.

its fine in my opinion, with adequate filtration. with excellent filtration you could probably add another one. if you take the gallons, each fish has 15gals. not that is much to go on as we have seen.
