I've got breeding chocolate gouramis, which I'm really happy with and am hoping the female doesn't spit the young too early.
Just got a little hydra problem but that'll soon be sorted.
Will be uploading a full hd video this week when I have time showing all the inhabitants etc.
thanks for looking

This is just an incredible tank. You have a lot to be proud of there.

Do you have a lot of the baby cories still?

How do you do filtration? (Sorry if this was already asked)

What a beautiful setup. If you ever can enter this in a contest, please do. The only thing I would ever add to this would be froggies (one of my favorite animals).

I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.

Stunning! This is such inspiration for what I want to do with my 40B...and your photos of the tank inhabitants are spectacular!

That's looking great. I love that grape purple spathe on that Anthurium.
