Yeah. But I hear a lot of people not being able to get it to eat or it's just to hard to maintain. I'm waiting a few years before I even attempt him at 200$+ a piece

Wow. Had to look it up too. The Achilles is gorgeous!

And your tank is amazing. I am very jealous!

Your tank looks great!! I just got a deal on a 180 and was wondering what size sump and what return pump do you have?

Also, achilles are hard to maintain. Naso, powders, purples, yellows and blacks are a lot easier,

Thanks. I'm looking for a 55g now. Petco has them for $55 but I want to find a cheaper used one.

I am amazed how fast you got your tank up and running. You should be on Tanked.

Lmao. I've been preparing for it for a while. I've had water going and sand as well. Plus 130 gallons and rock and substrate from an established tank. It helps to have good friends that work full time at a LFS. Lol

Btw- Craigslist is your best bet. You can get a 55 gal for 20$ and just silicone in your own dividers in any way that you want.
