    Hi I'm mitch I am a very fond green terror keper There could be many resons for this 1:the ph levels in the water is best at 6.5 acidicy
    2:they may not be to happy as a pair
    3:they breed best in a tank toghether(no otherfish). with plenty of ceramic or clay shards to lay their eggs
    4:the most oveios one of all make sure that one male and the other female you can do this by looking on their under bellies for there breeding tube near their rear fins

    I hope you take my advice into concideration mitchell age 16

I have a Green Terror about 5 inch, will it do good with a 4 inch Convict? In a 55 gallon tank.,

    A green terror needs that size tank by himself.  He is a carnivore and is going to grow up and be about 12 inches long and as soon as the convict will fit in his mouth - it will be considered food by the Green Terror. 
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-06-25
    That will work for now.  Just watch them as they grow.  Great thing about convicts is they can stand up to larger fish.

If I get a 3-4 inch GT will it be okay with a firemouth the same size in a 50 gallon?

i have a 40 gal breeder that has in it a 9 inch pleco, 4 inch greent terror, 3 inch golden severium, 2 5 inch peacock eels, 5 1 or 2 inch assorted cory cats, a 5 inch rocket gar, and a 5 inch red hook what other fish could I add to the tank because all the fish get along together though the all the fish know to stay out of the green terrors way

    You have too many fish in a 40 gallon tank now. I sure wouldn't add any others. I would get a larger tank. Rule of thumb is you need one gallon of usable water for each inch of adult fish. You are over the top now. 40 gallons and you have to subtract gallons for filter, decorations, substrate and at best you have 35 gallons left.
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-04-08
    This tank is a bit over populated as is. Remember all these fish are going to grow. To keep these fish health you are going to need a very strong canister filter to deal with the waste produced by these fish. You do however have a pretty good mix of fish that stay at totally different regions of the tank. I would still stay away from adding any more fish. Are you using Algae Wafers to supplement the cories??
  • Shawn Handley Jr. - 2012-04-09
    I don't feed them algea wafers but I do feed them frozen blood worms, flakes, and live rosy reds after they have been isolated in a different tank so they are carrying diseases.
