tank was still a little cloudy this morning when i took these pics. but all the girls have settled in fine. the shedevil and HMPK were duking it out for dominance, but nothing too bad. the shedevil was dethroned a few months ago by one of her sisters, but it looks like she got control of the tank back. or is second to the HMPK. cant tell yet. they both still flare at each other, but no longer hit each other.

its been a month and i think its time for an update.
all the girls are doing good, and no longer fight at all. rarely even see flaring.
i can occasionally spot a shrimp or two, so they are doing fine as well. the just hide all the time for obvious reasons.

is it safe to come out?:

you missed a pellet:

Do you ever encounter any major aggression issues from having females of differing spawns?

This tank is awesome! Any updates?
I'm curious about the cups with the emersed plants: where did you get the cups, and what kind of plants do you have in them/where did you get the plants?

Smile looking for a good breeder to buy from.

Hi Marko. I saw your postings here and on ultimate. I was wondering if you were going to have any more available soon? If not, can you refer someone?
