And just rigged the new LED and realized... wow! My fish do have colors!!! And how they pop out in the new light. Thinking it fair enuff bright for the plantings as well. Wish I had these lights back in my old Cichlid keeping days! Them fish would have been jewels under this type of light! The Neons seem to love it as all have come out of hiding in the plants to basically play in the sunlight LOL

Still battling ich. No deaths and no new signs. Just what was there from the beginning and even that's getting better.

Just did my 50% water change, cleaned the substrate real good. Went over all the rocks and driftwood pretty well. Added some salt and called it a day.

Good pick up as they can be hard to come by at times. Looks like red head tapajos. They are relatively peaceful but are still cichlids. They will get territorial especially when breeding. Give them room to forage through the substrate and don't be surprised if they dig up plants. Fake or real. Awesome fish to watch grow out. They have some really awesome colors when mature.

Looks good..

I washed 1 bag of 50lb sand, moved all my sand from the 55g to the 125g since it keeps the ph higher.. i filled the 125g up but my old filters from the 55g on it and the new ac110 that im bringing back tomorrow as it stopped working after 10mins of running.. spent hours doing this and was soo tired i just put rocks in any empty spot i could stick it .. oh and my lights are 2 different lights..so ill be replacing them too..

Need a background quick like .. water isnt cloudy like it looks ..
