i think i am going to rescape my 5.5 and maybe my 20. i really liked the anubias cluster **** at first in my 5.5 but its getting too crowded, there is a lack of depth and it is crowding out my micro swords. not sure what i will do with all of them unless i remove some of the hardscape from my 20 and make room. i need to move the amazon sword for sure in my 20 since the driftwood with moss and java ferns is almost completely obstructing it now. its pretty annoying since it has filled in real well.

180 is picked up! It wasn't bad.

Downside, I'm now in possession of a 10"+ black pacu

wtf how? that is a pretty huge downside. you better invest in a much, much larger tank or try to dump that on someone else fast.

We got so ****ing lucky that A) we got everything in the truck and B) that they bought the Pacu. I actually sold it for them on the spot. The guy offered me money for it and I told him it was property of the LFS now. The owner liked that I said that and gave me a hefty chunk of change.

However...I had 2 stragglers in the bucket. A mated pair of convict cichlids

I'd LOVE a pair of convict's...

To feed the babies to my bigger fish.

I then know where the fish are coming from and don't have any problems with diseases.

Come take these. I have NO ****ing idea how they are still alive. I acclimated them to the water temperature in my 55 but I have them separated. They aren't big, but I don't know what kind of damage they will do. I'll take them in tomorrow and see if they want them. They've had 2 successful mating periods.

Hey Bearcat, I mean Bearcoat haha.. Is there a beginner's guide to starting up an aquarium? I'm looking into getting one hopefully soon, and the only fish I ever kept was a Betta. IS it worth building one from scratch or going to a Petsmart and buying a 27 Gallon Kit for like $90

Haha

I started with a 29g kit. They are on sale at petsmart. It only fueled the addiction. I had to completely renovate my living room to accommodate all of these tanks.

If I could, I most certainly would.

I'm within an hour of you, but I'm not sure this hotel would appreciate a make shift fish tank set up in their room for the next 5 weeks.

I can't see why not, people do it when going to conventions.

Keep it in mind, a free mated pair.

I wish I could let them loose in my tank. Their aggressiveness worries me, even if it is temporary.

Interesting. Well, the fish store loved them! My botias didn't come in, so they gave me these.

Verified zebra pleco L-46


Oh, and this guy.


I guess the pacu sold right for quite a bit. That's a lot of $ worth of fish right there.

Those are beautiful. They probably had a request for one, then you showed up all of a sudden.

I got so ****ing lucky. I had them hold another one for me, zebras are amazing

I'm on edge right now, I'm trying to do everything perfect for the ray. Yes he has a guarantee, but I don't want to hurt him/her. It's so beautiful and peaceful.
