**** stripes, that is a big tank! The fish would be happy with that kind of real estate! Hey you know on a side topic, my friend is raising baby peppermint shrimp in her fuge. They've gotten really big, I can tell you how she did it if you're interested. For me it's not just saving money it's just amazing to see them survive and grow. With a tank that big you could breed the shrimp yourself in a fuge and put them into your tank when they get big enough. I am thinking of giving her two cleaners to breed in there for me.

Haha, I'm not fantasising either this IS going to happen. 5 years and counting LOL. Would it hurt to throw in a "black tang" as well..?

Yeah i know thats why 5 years haha, I'm gonna try and fully automate everything I can to make the water change as easy as possible.

Because the only problem I have is the price of shrimp - if i was to purchase x10 cleaners and x10 peppermints here thats over $2500!!

She put a sponge where the water comes into the pump area, she cut it thin so as not to disturb water flow but keep what's in the fuge IN the fuge (pep's will crawl over the wall and get into where the pumps are if you do not, bad for babies). Then she put 2 pep's in there and waited for them to distribute the babies (she actually got to see this batch get released) After that she put tiny bits of spirilina tablets it the water to feed them (plus they get anything that gets in the water colum) and they are growing up nicely. Pretty easy actually. you just got to play with the fuge a bit to get the right size sponge (too big and you will have a mess on your hands). HTH With the price of pep's there you should be able to make some money off of it

Oh and also she did NOT put a sponge where the water comes IN first, only LR in that section (our fuges had 3 sections to them).

Ok, to start off with, I have just started my 29 gallon tank. I currently live in Rockford Illinois and I wonder if anyone else here lives close. I am looking for Jelly Bean Goldfish but none of our LFS carry them. Does anyone know where I might find some? I am also looking for a Calico something like this. Second picture is of the Jelly Bean.
