I'll have to think about it , because at the moment, I barely have time to do anything at all, let alone pimp shrimp. I'm sure one of these days I'll do up a much proper nano... one of these days when I find time.

As for the fish, those are Vietnamese white cloud minnows aka Tanichthys micagammae. Don't get it confused with the regular white cloud minnow (Tanichthys alboneubes)because they're two totally different fish.

That's a nice video Nick the water is so clear it looks empty, also I've never kept Angels so do they get tired of swimming and just sit in the corner? They whole layout looks great in and above the tank.

The 10 g is nice too and the fish are beauties, I'm having my first go at HC and yours looks thick and lovely, so what do you do to make it so nice, trim or just patience?

Thank you sir! Those angels you saw hiding in the corner had just lost 2 of their tank mates. They're normally swimming around chasing one another but I think due to their lost company, they became a bit more timid. They usually flock to me whenever I'm near the surface of the tank, begging for food... not that day.

As for the Altum hybrids, they are getting too big for this tank actually. I just had 2 more jump ship last night . My son saw them on the floor as he woke up to use the rest room in the middle of the night. Plopped them back in the tank and they started breathing again so I'm hoping they're alive when I get home tonight.

I do 50% WC weekly. I bought them on Aquabid. The user no longer sells on there though.
Oh, I hope it lived.

When the altums get too large, you could always get some Discus.

Oh man I'm sorry you lost those fish.

Your rimless tank looks so awesome, but there is always that risk of losing jumpers.

Yeah... I had it lidless for so long that I didn't even think this would happen, not 2 in one night like this. If anything, I still have a paired male and female so I may breed those guys out.

I think they'd get even larger than the Altums.

Sorry about your lost angels Nick

Do think about it, it would be amazing I'm sure. I know what you mean about the time, junior year + my classes = almost no time (even on weekends ). Life's crazy, I'm glad we have tanks to wind us down and bring us back to nature some.

Thanks for the info. Are they considerably harder to obtain?

What's happening with this aquarium Nick!?! Inquiring minds want to know, lol. It's been like 3 years since you last posted on your thread....and I hope that the disappointment of your loss hasn't caused you to completely abandon the hobby. Believe me, I often and as angry as I am sad when these things happen, but a well deserved break usually gives the time to recuperate. And eventually I'm back at it again, dabbling here and there with another aquarium, lol.

lol more like 3 weeks :P

I've just been real busy with life and work atm. I'm still here, just not as active as I use to be because of my family. Be on the lookout for this tank... if all goes to plan there's a surprise coming up very soon. I'm not going to say what it is just yet.
