Machotaco's Aquarium Updates

Hey everyone! Thought I would just put together a thread for everyone to see what goes on in my several aquariums all in one place. Feel free to ask questions and ask for pictures of anything I talk about.

At the current moment I have 6 aquariums up and running.

3 20 longs (A. Agassizii pair, 2 male A. Cacatuoides, and 3 pristella tetras)
A standard 20 (fry grow out tank)
A 15 tall (A lone tiger barb)
And a 45 gallon (mixed rainbow fish)

I'll be posting some picture up tomorrow.

First update of many. Today I'll be posting up pics throughout the day but I'll be starting off with the 2 male A. Caca's. Full tank shot will be coming up later as well.

I have not gotten good pics of the other male yet so those will be going up later also.

Stay tuned!

Thanks! He's the last one left of the group I had purchased 6 ish months ago, and I'm looking to add some more to the school when the LFS gets them in. Speaking of pencils I'm considering getting 8 or so (N. Mortenthaleri I think?) for my Agi tank.

Anyone have experience with them as dithers??

I kept beckfordi briefly with my hongslio.
They looked and acted like little sharks...
I evicted them and the breeding went off the charts!

Considering the tank is already well established and the fish are not shy at all, I'll most likely leave it as is.

Time to share some pics of these agi's I was talking about earlier though.

Something interesting with the female. These two pictures were taken about 5 seconds apart but notice her colour pattern change. (The male was approaching)
