Either option sounds good but I would only do 1 angel if you go that route

Finally tracked down a Senegal Bichir locally that wasn't utterly expensive. My usual LFS has an albino senegal (ugly) for $15, Endlicheri for $38 and a long fin senegal for $42. The other LFS has large regular senegals for $20 but won't eat pellets. Petsmart has been out of stock on them in town, so I drove 20 minutes to the next town over and grabbed this one for $8.xx. S/he is right at 3" and has already been eating flake food when I fed the tank this morning

Nice! She will be a beast soon enough. After reading how slowly they grow I was surprised when mine grew as quickly as she did. From 3" to about 10-11" currently in about six months.

did a good spring cleaning tore apart all the power heads , skimmer , sump ect , cleaned all the motors , replaced all propellers , cleaned all plastic parts , also tore apart lights to get all the accumulating dust build up out of the fans , took off the ato unit as it kept over flowing need to figure out what caused it ,
lost my hamlet as he went on a hunger strike , he never showed any signs of illness no sign of ick or anything else water parameters where perfect this one just confused me ,
he 's only been gone 12hrs and I miss him already

Sweet I hope mine grows quickly. I want to put it with new world cichlids but I'm afraid my JD will think he's a worm right now haha

That's adorable, and it had the correct amount of space.

In 1981/1982 I had a Blue Oranda but it was probably in a 2-3G "fish Bowl" I just didn't know...

Option 2 or modified version. If you can grow lps, then use the light for its true value.

Considering moving all the shrimp from the 15G to the 6.6G Edge, also found someone with a 12G tall edge tank so am looking at that possibility.

Looking at ordering some new Chilis and also some Microdevario kubotai to add some color and activity in the upper area of the tank.

Also wondering if the CPD might like the shape of the 6.6G Edge better, trying to figure a combination which will help them feel more comfortable.
