Long Hiatus, New fish: Brachyrhamdia imitator C. brevirostris

It's been a long while since I've been active on this forum (school and what not). And fish keeping has taken a back seat but here's my latest acquisition:

It's a small naked catfish that interestingly has a similar patterning to several species of corydora such as C. melanistus and C. brevirostris. It's unknown why these catfish and others in the genus have these patternings to mimic corydora.

If anyone's wondering about my dorm room reef. It's no longer set up. Way too much work to get RODI water in and out of the room. I've started a small planted tank in its stead. High tech of course:

Here is a crappy picture of it. Its been flooded for about 6 days now.

My other project right now is putting together a small arduino ph/Temp controller. The parts have been ordered. I'll try to make a small build thread for that in the future: The pH chip itself is a work of art though:

Test NUMBERS with units are results; Not "They're okay."

The tank looks amazing.
Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.

Cute fish and very nice tank. I look forward to such a tank when I can afford it. Nice one to keep in mind for setup.
