Due to unforseen events I've had to do some creative re-arranging on my tanks.

Due to these ummm, changes I've had to relocate my little 2 inch female con into my 29g with my 6 tiger barbs and 6 black skirts.

Now *if* she remains docile(she was with other black skirts for 6 months in a 25g with no probs) toward the other fish, is this stocking level okay?

She patrols the bottom and the others stay in the middle. She has never(in 6 months) shown any aggresion toward tankmates. She has been behaving herself in this tank so far as well. I DO realize that could change tommorrow. :-)

I realize that's a lot of fish for a 29g. I do weekly 50% water changes and vacuum. Do you think if I'm careful it will be okay? I'd really rather not setup another tank unless she suddenly decides to seek and destroy...Thanks.

Thanks Dan. I'll keep a close eye on things. If she goes "convict" then I'll switch her out.

I was originally going to leave her in the 25g, take out the tetras, and get her a male.

However... when we were robbed last week, the guys came in through the basement window and knocked over my 25g. The only reason the con survived is becasue the tank landed against the couch and tilted at an angle. She was caught in the 2x5 inches of water in the corner of the tank. The tetras all were washed out and died.
