Ironically, I was scheduled to have a club meeting at my place last Saturday and was going to do a "before" and "after" shot of the tank. I had planned on doing a bit of a facelift on this and then get this journal up to date. Ironically, we had a premature snow fall here that pretty much devastated the area and I had to cancel the meeting. So... the tank is just an overgrown mess. LOL.

Vals are tough. They look good for a while, then just invade everything. I am making some big changes to this tank soon, but I'm in no rush. Had to help out a fellow club member who lost power for four days by taking all his fish. Its like a circus in this tank. I think there are 15 Torpedo Barbs in there and some are full size. Its hysterical.

Thanks for checking in. Glad my sig is still getting laughs. I may need to change it soon, the joke has warn thin.

I've got 8 Denisons in a 45 gallon tank. Getting kinda cramped in there for 'em. Gotta get a 125 or larger soon.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.

Mine are in a 48" long and they are not fully grown yet; they are aready cramped in that one! 125 gallon would be a great move

Pm'd you back Amanda!

This tank is still going but it needs a face lift. Maybe something coming in the next few months. I am still debating filtration and whether I want to drill this tank and another to go with a sump system for easier maintenance and better filtration.

Fish are still doing well, even with some of the late addition fish that came in about a year ago. Tank is way overstocked but have had very very few loses (maybe three fish since the tank was setup).

Stay tuned, should be something coming soon.

Here is a camera phone pic.

Will take a better picture when my wife remembers to bring her camera home. LOL
