Good, I am glad to hear that we are not entirely dis­en­cour­ag­ing you :)
For me the way it could be done which I would have no hes­i­ta­tion about would have been if for exam­ple you had lived near me and you could have had some of the 100 linkei which I have.
1. Linkei is rather big and more robust of all paros
2. Linkei is a good fish to learn about paros for this rea­son. Paros are not dif­fi­cult once you get to know it, they really are not, — but when you first start, they are to some extend. It is always not a bad idea to start with linkei and learn from these
3. Linkei are beau­ti­ful, really beau­ti­ful
4. We have /​I have and many oth­ers do, many linkei, they breed more eas­ily than other species. It is not a species which will be in dan­ger of dis­s­ap­per­ing sud­denly. Many mem­bers of the project are breed­ing these, I am also still to some extend.
5. I am unable to have any­one take my linkei, I sim­ply have too many. I am actu­ally these days think­ing that I will prob­a­bly set up a larger tank for the linkei, — prob­a­bly I would go with 80 or 100 liter, but I can­not keep hav­ing this many fish in small tanks. So it would be a win-​win sit­u­a­tion
6. You could start with a rather large group. I have just learned from our Ham­burg meet­ing, that paros in nature lives in flocks, small per­haps, but they do thrive in groups, — but what is a group.? For a large tank like that, in my opin­ion you should have at least 20 or more.
In my 60 liter, which I refur­nished yes­ter­day I had to put in 26 linkei,- and then I stopped and thought, no thats enough. I had to for space rea­sons.
7. If you had any chance of trans­port­ing fish from Copen­hagen, you would be most wel­come.

That said, — I know its prob­a­bly not pos­si­ble, but it was also just to let you know that I would not at all think it is impos­si­ble.
A 240 liter beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated and planned tank, with a large group of p. linkei could work well.

Well, it was just meant as a lit­tle bit of a joke, — or a emer­gency solu­tion. But as you can see, I have done this :)
By the way, this is my liv­in­groom, and I also live with someone

Many kind regards Helene, web­mas­ter at P-​P

Very beau­ti­ful, some­thing I would never be able to do.

I will think about how to approach this and then get back.
