Still running
Yes, it's still up and running but the stock has gone through some changes. I need to update the inventory, lighting and photos. Basically the cichlids, especially the breeding pair have been removed. I replaced them with a variety of tetras, regular and albino tiger barbs and a dozen angelfish. I also added a 10" black ghost knife I got really cheep at the LFS. I'm always adding pairs (or more) of Corys along with 2 large featherfin cats. I made the mistake of adding the tetras without quarantining them and before I knew it, my tank was infested with ich. I had to remove the clown and yo yo Loaches. Unfortunately, 4 of the clown died before I could get them nursed back to health and just after they were on the upswing I came home to find a yo yo had jumped out through a small hole. I've since replaced the 4 clowns and 1 yo yo but they're still in another tank along with a bunch of baby bristle nose plecos (regular and some hybrid super reds/calico long fins.) Thanks for the compliments! I enjoy the feed back.

Just stopped to admire your tank again. I'm wondering if it is still running? It is such a nice looking tank. Hope you're doing well, and I left you another vote.

Thanks for all the praise. I put a lot of time into setting up the tank and making sure there's lots of hiding places for everyone. Be sure to scroll down and check out all the cool pics I posted.
