I just want to have 2 set up and my wife is having a fit...lol
Can't imagine having all those tanks but I'm sure I'd ❤️ it.
Looks awesome and good luck with the move.

The long awaited revival of the fishroom

Just thought I'd hate a little journey on breeding aph. Australe Orange.

I will post pictures of the entire process, so that after you read through the whole thing you can breed them too!
Here is the male conditioning/breeding tank (during breeding the rock is replaced with 2 spawning mops)

All the fish are fed brine shrimp, MW, and omega one flakes for one week.
Then they are put into the breeding tank for three days. (Some people keep there breeding in a breeding tank for a week upwards. I find that the male will bully the females if kept in for a week) Each day I collect the eggs from the spawning mops and put them in moist peat for three weeks.
Pictures of the incubation process and raising fry will come.

Aph. Australe are much nicer then gardneri (didn't they eat your cherries??)

Yah.. prices are on the high side, lack of competition allows that I guess..

At the auction you can get stuff for prices so low you feel bad for the seller

some of you may remember my old fishroom thread. Well that thread has long since been deserted, and some of you have been asking me for a update so here it is!!!


the FR houses:
10 20 gallon long tanks
21 10 gallon tanks
2 55 gallon tanks
5-7 2.5 tanks

following the great pics or it didn't happen rule, there will be pictures, and maybe a video too

now for stocking (some tanks are not stocked yet)
20 gallon longs first

20L #1: jewel Cichlid breeding pair
20L #2: guppies (IDEK what they are doing)
20L #3: male krib tank (female died)
20L #4: multi breeding tank (fish not breeding size)
20L #5: Haplochromis tomato breeding tank (down to just a female sold the others)
20L #6: jewel grow out tank
20L #7: Haplochromis tomato grow out
20L #8: german blue ram grow out (looking for a pair)
20L #9:
20L #10:

10 gallons:

10 #1: RCS cull tank
10 #2: PFR RCS
10 #3: apistogramma macmasteri young pair (will be moved to a 20L soon)
10 #4: pumpkin shrimp
10 #5: Aph australe breeding trio (moved to a 2.5 to spawn)
10 #6 yellow lab fry
10 #7 jewel cichlid fry
10 #8
10 #9
10 #10
10 #11
10 #12
10 #13
10 #14
10 #15
10 #16
10 #17
10 #18
10 #19
10 #20
10 #21

now to the 55's
1: yellow lab tank (or was the grow out before mass murder)
2: angel grow out (looking for a pair or two from the 10)

20 highs
1: will be a breeding tank for angels
2: grow out for the angels
3: grow out for the angels

2.5 tanks
these are used for the kilis when I want a spawn, tanks for fry for the first week (nothing super cool)


FR runs on a large eco pump, but I'm changing it to a linear pump soon
tanks use sponge filters, box filters, and power filters
lighting is low-medium (pics of this will come)
stand uses DADO joints, built by my mom (wood is not pressure treated)

I may have missed a grow out tank (let me know if something looks wrong)

If anyone has questions, comments, concerns let me here them!!
specifically stocking advise for new tanks


I will warn you though, when pics do come don't yell about the wiring, its messy but no shorts so far

hope you've enjoyed this thread I wait your comments/advise!
Do you own an LFS? Or is this for pleasure? If you have an LFS id love to talk with you. My buddy whose into salt and myself (freshwater) are thinking of opening an LFS, but trying to nail down cost is super difficult!
