Good to know, the rarely awesome LFS I just discovered has kinda limited hours that fall mostly in my work schedule but I'll try to get by and go ahead pick it up sooner rather than later.

This is just what I was told to do when I briefly had one going and it worked for me. Just a warning. I'm not a saltwater guy by any means

The saltwater tank has settled out a bit.


The nano tank has been rescaped and restocked. It now has a breeding trio of some "show" quality guppies. The male is truly stunning.

Here is the cloudy pre-shot.

The Nano tank is still a little cloudy but its settling out. Still haven't really got a decent pic of the new guppies but I'll post what I've got.

First round of guppy fry is here! Looks to be about 20 fry swimming. Unfortunately she released them in the main tank :/. I have a birthing tank to place her in when she is close but she wasnt moved yet. Not sure how I will get the fry out. The first 1-2 batches from these females will not be used anyway.

Congrats man, guppies aren't my thing, but a success is still as such! Now let's move you to the cooler continents of cichlids

Really nice and natural looking! That's one handsome guppy too!
