A Wealth of Knowledge

Well the reason I signed up is because this place is bumpin' with activity great place to chat about aquariums and their inhabitants. Also still being fairly new to the hobby the knowledge of all the members and moderators I'm sure will be invaluable! Click image for larger version

ID:	214039 this is my 25 set up and would love some comments and advice, it's just been rebuilt so I'm sure the cloudiness is probably just helpful bacteria floating around thanks in advance!

Thanks I found it at a place called the ocean floor here in phoenix AZ, and had to have it no matter the cost. Great for my African Brown Knife to hide and looks great as well!

The pieces were about $13 a pound and this thing was pushing almost 4 pounds so it ended up being almost $60 so not horrible; however, I hadn't expected to spend $60 when I went in there.

Hi, I couldn't help but notice you said you have an african brown knife in a 25 gallon tank. the african brown knife needs at least a 125 gallon tank to live happily. It would save you a lot of headaches and would be good for the well being of the fish if you rehomed it.

They only get to be like 8-10" in captivity why does it need to be in such a huge tank?
