I have used one light for 2 tanks - somebody just gets the night turned to day for awhile!

Using API liquid test my readings where- pH8.2, NO2 0ppm, NO3 5ppm, NH3/NH4 0ppm. In my DT I get a pH of 7.1, and the last time I checked the tap water it was 7.5.

They where drip acclimated for almost 3 hours so I don't think they died from pH change. I'm at a loss for what killed them besides bad stock.

Oh yes! She has chased him out of her spots a couple times already. He's found a cave she can't fit in. Funny thing was in the tank he came from he was the dominant one.

My Convict is a jerk. Considering rehoming it. It fights my green terror a lot, to the point that the GT hides under the filter overhang. My jack dempsey doesn't give 2 craps about the GT though.

Wife has been wanting a blood parrot for awhile. After scouring local LFS and petsmarts, no one had one that she liked. Found this guy today at our fav store, paid a bit more for him in comparison but happy wife = happy life.
