Every time I give them more room, they have babies. I wonder what they would do in a 55 gallon tank. May have to try it.

Wow, you've really come a long way! Isn't it wkndracer that has the multi grouping of 10g tanks with shared plumbing? Thinking about doing the same? I'm eagerly watching this new development!

Thank you.

It is him. Kind of planted the idea in my head a while ago. I am not going to be using the plumbing for filtration though. Just for water changes. And I am going to attempt to drill all the tanks so I don't have to worry about siphon issues. Going to be slow going though. Still have a lot of planning and cleaning to do to get the area clear. Hopefully I will be able to see how much material I will need this week though. Stay tuned.

Figured I would post a couple of pictures of the tanks.

The rack.


I changed the lights around a bit. I added a dual T5HO 36" fixture to the bottom tank and put the lights that used to be on that one on the top. So far, so good.

Top tank.


Bottom tank.


And the 20high. Nothing has changed.


Enjoy.

The tanks look good Cable and the Albino Plecos are getting big!!!!! How many did you get out of the brood? I was reading about them and how just small changes will keep them from breeding, like the wrong size cave, etc. it seems they like a some what tight fit.

Did you see the Ghost Shrimp photos from my 10 g?

Thanks man. I didn't get very many. I think some of the eggs got eaten by something. Not sure though. I am going to try adding some bigger caves as the fish seem to have outgrown the ones I have in there.

Have not seen it yet, but I am going to go look in a minute.

Thank you. That plant is Alternanthera renekii (sp?).
