Hi All!

I posted yesterday in the forums to get advice about a sick catfish. So sorry I did that first. (I was a little freaked out and kind of ignored my manners)

Anyway I thought I would try and make up for that. I am married with 3 dogs and 6 fish I will list the stats of the tank below.

150 Gallons (South American Cichlids)
Fluval FX5 which knock on wood we have not had any issues with
multi home built air pumps.
No live plants although we made that mistake intially (LOL)
Huge Malaysian Driftwood piece and a couple of faux plants

We have:
2 Jack Dempseys - 8 inches each
1 Midas - 8 inches
1 Blood Parrot 6.5 inches
1 Pleco - 11 inches
1 catfish - 5 inches (hes full grown)

We intially put all of these fish in a 55 because pet smart said it was fine. (LOL) so when they outgrew it and they did we bought the 150 instead of buying new fish. We love them and they are getting bigger now that they are in big tank.

Well I better stop now. Have A Great Day!
