I am confident that we will get that glass secured better this time around. That should be Saturday morning, so I will likely get water back in Monday.

I've been testing my water and I am getting Ammonia down to zero from 3-4ppm in about 12 hours. Dosed it up yesterday early and it was down to zero by bedtime. I want to see what it does with all of the water. Weird thing is, I have not seen Nitrites. Not sure if it is the kit, or if those are going up and disappearing between tests. I've got nitrates, so something is happening. If that all goes well, I will probably get the Singapore Angel, Volitain Lion and Chromis in next week.

I'm rethinking my stock list now. Many will stay on, but I am going to try multiple Angels...two large (probably Majestic and Scribbled) and add a Multibar and Multicolor with the Singapore for Dwarfs (even though the Singapore is not technically classified as a dwarf). Maybe even throw in a Pygmy Flameback.

Lovin the flame back I think that's going on my list.

You gonna try anything daring?

I love Emperors, but I have always wanted a Scribbled Angel (if you've ever seen one in person, you get it) and for some reason, the Majestics and Blue Faces have been grabbing my attention lately.

As for daring...I'm not sure what that would be exactly. I figure the Singapore and Multibar angels are tough to keep and then having multiple Angels...that's daring enough for me.

I've seen your posts and you honestly have me a little concerned with them. If I have the choice, which odds are I will, I am leaning towards the Majestic. Time will tell...my master plan for stocking will probably end up totally different.

I am sick to my stomach right now. Glass guy was out fixing the brace and somehow cracked it. Its emptied now and I'm looking for another tank to replace it. Of course he's a young guy, no business insurance, but at least seems like he will work with me. He wants to replace the front pane. I'm thinking that is a bad idea.

Man, you really caught a bad break, my heart sunk a little when I saw the crack.....

What would be the cost to replace the pane vs picking up another tank? A new tank can give peace of mind but if its not affordable right now your options may be limited.

I really hope it all works out for you, I wouldnt wish this on my worst enemy....

Really sorry to see this. Hopefully he will purchase another tank and he is able to fix and sell this one.
