Today I bought a large piece of black posterboard, cut it down to size, and taped it to the back of the tank to serve as a background. It looks awesome, and really shows off the silver on my Silvertip Tetras. And I saved about $7.50 by making it myself, and not buying a pre-made background.

So now my 46 gal. bowfront is a species-only Labidochromis caeruleus (Electric Yellow) tank. Thinking about trying my hand at breeding them :P
You want to breed fish but you would put others down?

I said I DIDN'T want to put them down, contrary to what had been suggested to me before.

I just don't want them in with the electric yellows.

Well, that makes more sense, as the context of "what was suggested to me" was entirely left out. I read it as the act of "putting them down" was an option. As you were.

Water changes:

29 FW 50% (needed it)
150 FW 25%

Glad to report every fish is now settled in and happy.

Soaked driftwood added to 150.

Plant order placed.
