The Neons seem to stay in the lower half of the tank now that the DD Angel is back. When he was gone they would traverse all areas and depths enjoying the middle just all the time.

Now that the big cranky guy is back they try and stay below any place he goes. I call him the Ghost because he is nearly invisible since the substrate is very dark and the background came stock as black. All of a sudden poof there he is, pops out of the shadows and surprises me and the fish!

I have seen him pop up and bull doze right through the middle of the school just to chase them away.

Of the 2 bullys he was the lesser of the aggressors. But he does chase more than bite.

As I was sitting and entering this info I started watching the Angels.

2 of the young Koi Angels are hanging out together all the time. Previously when that happens they end up pairing off. They are the most orange coverage of the 3 - just musings.

The other males I had hoped to get were Philippine blue and Ghost / Panda Angel like a silver with round to oval black splotchs, absolutely beautiful both groups from this particular breeder. Might have to pay a little $$ for them, more $$ than the usual nice fish. Might also have to get a return policy if they can't get along.

Was hoping to just get a passed the prime mature adult male breeder so I would know it was a male. The breeder is the one the DD Black came from. The 2 that were rehomed - the bigger female especially was of exceptional confirmation. Really nice fish!

Those sound nice angelfish. I'm tempted next auction if any come up although the ones I have are mainly getting along so should leave it at that. Are they just cranky or space limit?

So sorry as usual very busy and actually just kinda forgot to note this thread.

So a little bit going on. Can't remember if I mentioned, there are no longer any Rainbow fish. All gone now, died off.

Melini Cories seem to be gone, I think already mentioned that.

The Angels are grown and now really fighting at each other, looks like 2 males and one female.

No one ever took the Opaline Gourami.

The Upside Down Cat got a new home with the huge Double Dark Angel with a nearby hobbyist.

Added about 8 male Green Lantern Platy to the tank, except one turned out to be a female I think even though I tried to have male and female in separate tanks! (now have more babies in the other tank tiny fry/!) Just because I have too many. Some will be going to the auction.

Here are the Angels looking a little like they are squaring off.




I tied the tiny Anubias to a stone. Planted the sad looking Red Sword plant and need to get some more fert capsules for the tank.

Moved some of the over grown Wisteria out and still have too much. Trimmed a bunch of poor leaves and cleaned some of the green spot algae off the front but didn't get around to finishing it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Intend to move out the WCMM even though I really enjoy them in there.

Will move the big, huge Spotted Raphael Catfish to the 46G. Will be turning my spare room into an office and fish tank room, and although had planned to sell the 46G, will now keep it.

Wanting to also move out a few more Plecos and the 3 or 4 Rio Otapa Swordtails(Haven't seen the 2nd male for awhile but the other male is getting a beautiful sky blue Sword tail)

And the Gourami and the Odessa Barbs. Which all depend on what fish I get at the auction on Saturday (about a 75% chance of going.) Need to move the aforementioned baby Platy to the spare tank so they aren't fish food.

Have still been looking for a great replacement tank like a ~150-250 gallon tank for the upgrade to this one for the living room Display. But the budget is not too big for that tank, it will have to be a tank that someone really can not take with them when they move or something. A steal deal - Cheap but good.

~~~~~~~
What I need for this tank is about 2-3 Clown Loaches. Everytime I think I should buy them they are really expensive.



Delapool, Discus someday in the future!!!




There will be a regional club Rocky Mountain Cichlid Association Auction this weekend and I may find a few blue Angels there. New ones for this tank.

Also planning on a special surprise fish stocking here... We will see how it goes.

And tsk, tsk! We should be getting more regular updates and pics

Beauty of a tank. Nice to see it evolving with the pic history. I'm sure that bargain biggie is in your future! Have you ever advertised that you are looking for one? Maybe an ad expressing your sincere desire and love of the hobby may move someone to part with a big empty tank sitting in storage that they haven't found to motivation to deal with yet.

Yikes - Its been awhile. About 7 months

latest pic


So a little bit has been going on. Yet not much in the end.

Moved fish around and kept more of the warm water fish in this tank and moved more of the cooler water fish to the 46G.

Ended up with a surprise pair of Discus. They has some issues in making the change to the new home had fin rot, one got better and one died after a few weeks. Ended up with no Discus and decided it was a bad time. Really hadn't planned on them just at that time. It did not work out well and was a miserably sad experience.

Moved one pair of Koi Angels to their own space. Will be rehoming them for someone who wants to breed.

Have 3 Angels now - one Koi Angel and a long fin Silver blue and a Golden longfin.

Previously had a school of 50+ Neons and Cardinals, but many were eaten by the large Raphael Catfish. Moved the Raphael Cat to the 46G so it wouldn't eat the fish.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
NOW September 2017

Side note - A couple weeks back got a used 90G SW equiped with overflow (which I don't know what to do with that yet) Oceanic bowfront. Still deciding if we will use it for the new FW or what to do with it, maybe a SW option.

Have recently been getting more Neons to round up the school for 50+ again.

3 Angels
SAE pair
Bronze and Peppered Cories
Clown Loach baby
Neons and Glowlight Tetras
Green Longfinned Dragon Pleco
Albino shortfinned BN Pleco pair plus another male

Erk, I can't keep up lol. So the big tanks are the 72 and 46G with the 90G coming soon (not even going to attempt the small tanks!)?

Yes, good memory.

As another side note
smaller tanks are
FW 12G Edge PRL shrimp/
6.6G Edge nano fish/

5G Spec V Betta /
29G Angel Breeder going away soon

SW 12G Mr. Aqua 2 fish 2 snails/
6.6 Edge Rock flower and macroalgae tank/
6.6G M.Algae /Pods growing tank

I took them out of my signature line, lol. Somehow that equals 5 - soon.... I keep intending that.

3 SW =1

46G going away
29G going away

Betta doesn't count as a tank right?

You know - the fuzzy math - we already had this discussion, but I think it was before the 90G

Things have calmed down in this tank now.

The Neons are looking good, at least the ones which lived through QT to make it into the tank. Have had a bunch losses for them though just to get to the number I was hoping for - probably got 100 sick ones, heart crushing even though they were bad shipments to the fish store it is a hard pill to swallow seeing that many fish die.

Have many things going on at home and limited in how much I can get done. Just posting has taking most of my time. Need to post a few pics on all the tanks but won't probably happen for another week.

The 72G is a pretty tank.

Now that I have the 90G bowfront still sitting in the garage I am having a hard time deciding to move this stuff or just start a whole new tank.
