Once the machine got started.. there's no way of stopping it... that being said.. i was speaking of my jewel cichlid pair
Just 1.5 week after this 3rd batch.. what do i see? 200+ more fry... so i took them out n put with their previous siblings.. Until 1.5 week later lol...
OK seriously I'm losing space here...
Here's a video of the two batches in the fry tank.. see the massive difference in size

Hellow everyone!
So today I will bombard you with 2 more videos, as some new things are going on in my tank.... Finally my 2d pair of jewel cichlids agreed to breed. Both are the sister/brother of the other couple.. how strange that I got 2 sex siblings of each haha... and I caught them in the spawning act last night.. Yes while everyone is clubbing im watching fish porn...
And the second video is a vid of my two Synodontis Njasse catfish from also Malawi lake. They both come from the same store.. one i bought a couple month ago... look at the size difference.. while the one in pet store remained mostly the same size, mine has 3x his haha.. But nevertheless both are very pretty.

Oooh, fish pr0n. Bow-chika-wow-wow!

Seriously, though, I'm always in awe of the setup you've got going on, and you somehow always manage to get amazing footage of everyone!

"Aquariums are like science, art, and hypno-therapy, all rolled into one," I insisted.
"You're not putting a hundred gallon tank in the living room," my roommate replied.


10g "Community" of nothing but Danios - 2g (barely) planted Betta - 2.5g Betta - 1g Pond Snail Repository

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'

TOTALLY FREAKIN' AWESOME AND AMAZED!!!!!!

I can't believe what I am seeing and reading!!! You are the Super Woman if the Aquarium World!!!

First I can't believe the first 54g build held up, and then you added on to it, and it is still together even after 2 earth quakes and on those stands to boot! HOLY COW CHIPS BATMAN!!! You sure have the touch!!!!

I LOVE the Layout od the wood and rocks!!! I also can't believe the Africans are not destroying everything in site! I have had africans for 20+ years, and they have NEVER left anything alone!!! From Substrate to rocks that were in piles, those little rascals ALWAYS moved something around!!! I am wondering if it is the ammount of caves/rockpiles and the driftwood and plants that have them content with their suroundings and is keeping them from remodeling? OR the overall dimentions of the tank? You have a large footprint, so maybe they aren't cramped up? BUT the Local Fish Store that I used to work at and was Owned by a Good Friend had a Custom/Hand built 540g Tank, and when we had Africans in it they were always digging and moving rocks and plants! ?????

I just don't understand their behavior!!! But how ever you are doing it it is FREAKIN AWESOME!!!

About how big is the average fish in the aquarium now?

Also what is the brand and type of substrate you have in the tank now? It looks pretty fine, and I am planning on setting up a Shell Dweller tank pretty soon, and would like to find the same stuff!

Well keep up the AWESOME WORK on the tank and fish, and I will keep on watching in amazement!!!

AWESOME TANK!!!!!!
Drew
