im partial to the cichlids. its a hard decision. ive been thinking about it ever since i was made to downsize. and then once they are gone we will only have saltwater tanks. your right there is something about saltwater thats kinda like a cleaner high than fw. maybe, just maybe. if we do the 125 i may grab a couple rams for the 20 gallon that has been used for everything other than what we bought it for.

I've said this a thousand times but....
I love the simple beauty of FW but I also love the complex beauty and movement of SW. I like the idea of fowlrs because of all the fish you can't put in a reef. Like Angels<3

I would kill for an Aussie tank. But even going through the wholesaler I couldn't afford it.

I like the purple firefish better. Mine doesn't swim around much, but he is always out where you can see him. I just think they are more colorful.

less than 200 on la jodi. glad your still following brent. what and how do you feed your lion?

ive got a list of 18 fish. my wrist turned into mush tonight so ill list them all tomorrow hopefully when i can type with both hands. [moderator edit] brake job on a dump truck at work aggravated the worst of my sprained ones. thats what i get for being stubborn and never giving them time to heal. oh well.

as long as he hangs out in front of the rock work he should fit in nicely.

you would think that i would have had this stocking sorted all out by now. i dont want to over stock but i think i can push it a bit. skimmer is rated for 150gallon and the sump volume is almost the same as my dt. dsb in both.

My volitan is by far the easiest fish to feed. (Atleast out of my tank) I bought Sally's frozen silversides, cut one in half and soak in hot water for 3-4 minutes... then drop ot in the water in front of my lion... he's to the point where when I feed him, he comes up and hovers about 3" below the surface waiting. The tusk is the fun one when it comes to eating...in less than 2 weeks he's gone from hiding to poking the top of his head out the water waiting for food...in another week ill have him handfeeding psssst-- Jesse get a tusk!
