Loving the pics! Can't believe I just found this. TOTM was a nice read too.

Thank you, speaking of TOTM!!!

~~~
I was supposed to rehome the SRC (eats almost all the Neons, Cardinals & Glowlight Tetras)- but I just like her so much I might not ever get around to it.

Thank you, I am enjoying it again.

Still missing the once large school of Neon Tetra types I had. They really liven up the space and look amazing against the black background.


Cories are doing great! There are 11 or 12 little Melini Cories (still hide the most in the back), 6 Peppered Cories and the 4 Green/Bronze ones still. They are crazy when the food comes out!

Yes they were beautiful. Over the course of time, illness and mean tank mates I lost them though.

They were from a lfs and they never got any more like them in again. One of the companies selling Angels online has some spendy beauties.

They were labeled at the lfs as mixed Angels. The best thing about them was that their color was clear and didn't have dirty black speckles. Which I see on most lines of bright orange reddish Koi Angels.

I love neon tetras but sadly tetras don't seem to like my tank at all.

Any time I get them I always lose some. Buy 6-12, lose 2-4.

One thing about them is the long trip from catchers where they live (who may use poison methods) from middleman to middleman to maybe even another middleman, to the company wholesaler to retailer to us - long trip, more long trips and more long trips, etc. Surprising that we end up with any!

Try some tank raised ones. I try to only buy tank raised now.

Okay long time and many changes since the last post with this tank. I post the daily happenings on "what did you do with your tank..." thread here
What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

I will give a quick overview of the ~ past 6 months.

Everyone loves this tank around home and it was decided it should get moved to a more centrally visable location a few months ago (now located in a space kinda behind the sectional sofa). I made room but that hasn't quite happened yet. Soon.

So the Angel Fish paired up and caused all kinds of turmoil. Rehomed the queen fish, and then the other immediately paired up with one of the 3 young Double Dark Blacks I got as babies in December. So I rehomed 2 of the DD.

Then I had 2 males. Found some kinda nice Koi Angel babies - 3 of them, couldn't pass them up.

As the young Koi Angels grew up half way the grown 2 males started fighting with all the fish so I am believeing I have at least one female in the Koi Angels.

Moved the 2 males to the 46G tank, lost one to an illness, moved the other DD male back to the 72G to use the 46G as a QT and hoping that the DD would be better behaved with out the instigator Angel.

Nope. He's rude and chases all the fish, but doesn't seem to hurt them, so leaving him in there for while.

Here's one of the Koi Angels and my new school of Neon Tetras.


Around July I got Odessa Barbs (3 males) and some longfin Green Dragon Plecos, 2 Albino and one deep green (the breeder selected for me for quality specimen) and one which is more ebony with a hint of green with a tan trim on his tail, the one I picked cause it was so attractive.

bad pic of Odessa Barbs and one of the Koi Angel babies.




More Pics
of Albino Longfin Dragon Pleco


My selected LF Dragon Pleco


Peppered Cory and albino BN Pleco


Bought approx 60 Neon tetras from $1.00 sales (3 purchases w/QT) and had pretty good luck until this last batch of 22 - in QT only have 6 or 7 left.

Here are some more of the Neons next to the xxL moss ball. Unfortunately around 20 were eaten by the giant Spotted Raphael Catfish. So there are only around 30 left in the shoal.

Decided that it would be an enjoyable tank to have 60-75 Neons so they could really school. And look beautiful.

Frustrated that they got eaten before I could move the Spotted Raphael Cat over to the 46G as it is being used as a QT. And ended up with a illness problem so I couldn't move her on the time schedule I had planned.

I will update the stocking list too as things have turned over a bit. That is a basic catch up.

Oh yes and I got a bunch of new plants that mostly perished over the past 6 months, probably from too little light.

Fun with fish!

Wow - nice pics! Hoping the neons keep as a large school (how is the angelfish treating them??).
