I was walking though my LFS
yesterday, just for fun, and because I had 2 empty tanks sitting around (75 and 45). The 45 will go back to school with me in the fall as my classroom tank, but I had been trying to figure out what to put in the 75. The tank was cycled and ready to go; I have been using it as a clippings tank all summer. Then I saw them, a whole tank full of eartheaters. And I told my wife I had to have them. We went home, I began decorating the tank with some driftwood and rocks I had lying around. this morning I was at the door of the LFS
right as they opened and I picked up 6 Red hump Eartheater: Geophagus steindachneri
, they are still very young, but between the LFS
lady and I, I think I have 2 males and 4 females.
Now what I am sure you are all waiting for Pictures... the water is still cloudy from some last minute re-arranging I did before introducing them, and do to the fact that the tank has a lot of plant debris. I am hoping the Fluval 405 I put on the tank will clear it up by morning
. I will take some more pictures when the tank clears up, so these will have to get you by until then :P
