Hi! Recently joined this forum since I'm new to this hobby and would love to learn more! I'm Luka and I am very new to personally keeping fish. All my current knowledge on fish comes from my father who has kept fish all his life. As passed-down knowledge only stretches so far, I joined this forum in the hopes of becoming more up-to-date with info on all things related to this hobby.

Currently got a ~160L Juwel tank with a variety of tropical fish.

I am very taken by all types of plecos and catfish, and am very open to discussion on sailfins and corys!

(Edit: tank is 170L)

Sailfins grow huge. You'd need an enormous tank for a sailfin plec. But there are several plecs, and of course cories, which would be fine in a 160 litre tank.


Which model tank do you have? Juwel don't make a 160 litre tank, but all but one style would be OK. The last one, the Lido, has a very small footprint for its volume so that would be trickier to stock.


Be careful about knowledge passed down. Another member has trouble with her father's ways of doing things :unsure:



Edit - I have just seen your other thread with a photo of the tank. I have to admit I've never seen that style Juwel tank before!

I had originally thought that my sailfin was just a common plec at first, since the shop we got him from wasn't really all that interested in anything aside from his £20 price tag... If the worst happens and he starts growing into some great monster then I'll have to keep him in his own tank :confused:

As for the model, I'm not really sure. I think it might be 170L, but with the substrate comes to about 160L in the end. Here's a photo of the tank, it's some sort of hexagon lol.

And yes, he is generally very knowledgeable but insisted that a pufferfish would be just fine in a tank of little tetras and guppies lol. Did my own research on that one. :no:

I've got a pretty big variety! About five types of tetra, bronze corys, a sailfin pleco and a common pleco, some lovely male guppies and a few others lol.

Hoping one day to get a snowball pleco and gold laser corys :D
Here's some pics of my tank, my sailfin and shrimp refusing to leave my common plec alone.
