You have a beautiful tank! Love the Bolivians and that driftwood! It adds a lot of character to the tank!

Thanks so much ladies and gents!

I have been VERY busy in the last few weeks!

I had recently did a MAJOR re-scape, flipping and moving the driftwood over to the other side. I am also really considering ditching the wood for awhile and going with large rocks that can act as large mountains... and attaching quite a bit of Nana's to them...

A few other updates:
Plants are doing great, think I may have killed about half of my Blyxia* though when I used a lead weight to help weigh them down. And a few vals melted after being moved so much, but they have all grown several inches. The Anubias are very ready for propagation... Can probably split them into fourths.

Fish, I got 4 Firemouths! They look fantastic!

Another reason why I want to get rid of the wood, least when they get bigger. I think they will be great with the Bolivians... If I don't change it up again to a tank that is more active with some larger fish.. maybe Mbuna's... again.

We will see!

Ohh and I will get a picture tomorrow!

Bolivian Rams make everything better.

I just stumbled across your tank and love it. What a find! I also got my first Bolivian Rams recently and I have to agree, everything is better with Bolivian Rams.

Where did you find females? I've only been able to find males. I love my group of bachelors, but I'd like to set up a harem type situation if I can find the right ladies. Thanks!

i really like your set up. i just got 6 bolivian rams 2 weeks ago for my 40breeder. I see yours pop up that yellow color. my rams seems to have darker spots. I dont know if its because of the darker substrate i have...i hope some of them will mate soon.

Tanks:My very first aquarium, 3x 10g bare bottom, 29g, 40gbreeder, 55g
