Havent updated you guys for a while so here is whats been happening in my tank. 2 days ago i got 8 feeder gups, to add to my breeding stock, 1 had a worm cyst and was euthanized, another has a crooked spine, probably from inbreeding so isnt going to be bred... the other 6 were all female and 2 have since dropped. I found 2 fry hiding in a plant after work last night, and another dropped 2day, while i watched and caught babies... also yesterday i got 4 kuhli loaches, and i LOVE them!!! So here are some pics, water is a bit cloudy cause i just did a 100% wc and was messing with the sand...

Personally, I think it would be cool if you had black sand for the bottom and then the sandfall was also black. Up to you of course though.

Great stuff! I like the sand fall,
Just IMO. The red tail shark can get up to 16" and the rainbow shark quite large as well.
Recommended would be probably the 55gallon or larger to home the shark
Again just my opinion
