Great list!! I saw those ghost catfish yesterday, those things looked so freaking cool!!

Also, you mentioned feeding the loaches greens in a earlier thread. Do I just stick with the tropical flake food for the mass majority and then drop in Some shredded lettuce for the guys below?

I am not in the best economic position right now I guess you can say, that's why I've been earning my own cash since I was 13

Yea, I mean, I guess the flakes are ok, but I like to add that little extra to make them happier, you know, make sure it's not iceberg lettuce your giving them, that has no nutritional value, it's mostly water, it's gotta be romaine
Ps, be prepared to get freaked out by your kuhlis, as they like to lay on their sides motionless, it looks like they are dead, lol I freaked out the first time

Ok fellow fish addicts..... I went to the store to purchase my new Tetras with the plan in waiting for the loaches and gourami....I swear that was my plan and intentions when I walked in there.....


Well....................

Walked out with the following:

1 Glofish Green Tetra
3 Neon Tetras

3 Kuhlii Loaches
1 beautiful Dwarf Gourami


**** IT... I tried I really tried but couldn't help it...

Check the levels this morning before and now 6 hours later and all seem to be going good and everything matches... Guess I will know if a mini cycle and water change is in my near future... As in about 12 hours from now.......
