What's everyone's Opinion?
Looks fine for the most part. Not too sure why so many shrimp but that up to you the only the I would change is bolstering the snails some and including some nassarius. They are great detritus/food cleaners. I would also hold off on the BTA until the tank has settled for a few more months. After just moving there's no telling what may happen (touch wood nothing does).

Is the QT large enough for 3 fish?

Cheers
Steve

Heh, a bump is just a straight forward way to move a thread back to the top of the page. It's not really something you want catching on as you can imagine the results if everyone was doing it.

Because the wife loves them, and she holds the purse strings.

I've got a condy in there now who is doing great, but I may hold off.

My new tank is also a 75 gal. How many pounds of sand did it take to get to a 4 inch depth? (maybe I can cut down the number of trips to HD)

Now you're making me think...if I remember right it was about 4 or 5 bags plus the live sand I got from Zack.
