Truth. That's why I used to have 12 tanks running. You'll figure out what does it for you. Rainbows were very interesting, the morning colors and displays were something, far to active for my mellow taste though. The eba are little glass puppies, you'll get a kick out of them for sure. Colors are spectacular as well.

Yeah, I want bigger and bigger tanks. I need a bigger house. I should've been born rich. I went to a fish store Saturday and they have a 4,000g display tank. I could watch that all day. So many possibilities, haha!

Man a 4000 gallon tank I can only imagine, that could keep you busy tweaking it for a life time! The possibilities really are endless

I donít think my wife is on board for me getting that many tanks yet, eventually I will have to make a fish room I guess lol. I am a sucker for schooling fish so the idea of having a little larger fish that schools is exciting to me for sure. I like the sexual dimorphism between the males and females as well, although thatís not exactly uncommon with fish.

Cichlids for community tank (225 Gallons)

Any recommendations by the way for lighting on a 6 foot tank? Iíll probably have it lightly planted with some Amazon swords and other easy to care for plants.

Edited for terrible spelling

Finnex is what I have on my current planted tank but itís not nearly the same size.

Iím somewhat of a fluval fan though so I would be interested in trying them out.

I really like the ease and responsive buttons on the fluval remote
