jschwabe5,

You've got some nice fish, and nice tank there!
And what a bruiser this bad boy is! Look at that forehead!

Yeah that bruiser angel has a forehead like Herman Munster. Your tank looks great! I'm battling GDA in the 180g, and I'm pretty sure folks would need medication if I post pics with cabinet doors open.

Sorry I just saw this, I really enjoy the pictures of your tank and I never had a passion for angels but yours is immaculate!

I am not really a fan of "Super Veil Angelfish" but I think this Gold of mine is very impressive! She is a good 9 inches long! (David Labell's stock) She has a body diameter of 3 1/2 inches.

This fish had Hexamita early on, (nickle size fish) was probably off food for 3 weeks.
I got her eating again, with a Metronidazole treatment, followed up by a Praziquantil treatment. Here is a baby picture...

The experts told me she would never get larger than a quarter sized fish. Guess they were wrong...

I've never been a fan of the fancy finned angels, but the hat one looks like a waterfall! Nice work getting it back to health.

Good to hear you got them healthy. It's scary how fast some disease can go, I am battling camallanus in my 180g, and I'm sorry to say I have lost a few.

I hope you get a handle on the camallanus soon, jschwabe5! Other than having an Electric Blue Ram in my 65H, that has gone totally blind, the fish health in my tanks is good.

Here is a picture of Petey the Pup.
[IMG][/IMG]

He and his brother, and the little lady, have been spawning on the black overflow to the back for some time. Now Java moss is steadily creeping up the overflow, and Myriophyllum and Bacopa are filling in this area. So today they were spawning on the black silicone in the corner of the glass (second time).
I stuck a piece of slate in. There are some nice swordplant leaves, on the other end of the tank they could use... Not their territory, I guess.

Nice angels. I have a heavily planted 125g too, with a group of five Peruvian angels, cories and schooling fish. A tank that size is not easy to scape, but you've done a nice job.

Yeah awesome tank mark! I think I read somewhere that someone is copying your led setup! Or closely resembling it! I'll be sure to take some ugly green metal halide before shots and then the crisp white light photos after! I think with my LEDs on my reef tanks I got more shimmer than with my metal halides I replaced. I know my electric bill was way less with just those! Can't wait till the three 250w are off the bill! Your tanks are nicely layed out and groomed! Fish are awesome too! Love discus but went with tetras, rams, and 3 rainbows in there.

Thanks Drew! It is a labor of love! I am flattered you would copy my setup. If you have a heatsink spacing issue, due to running 4 fans,
you could rotate them 90°, depending on space limitations?
I don't know if you are doing free hanging or a canopy?
I don't think some of the MH, and T5HO people realize what is available out there now in the LED world.
Not sure what difference you will see running 12 Cree XTE, on an LDD-1000 board, as opposed to the seven I run.
Keep a close eye. I started seeing BBA issues, and had to ramp the lights down.

I need to do a journal on my 65High, and my 29 one of these days

Newbie but what's BBA? And gonna run two fans on one side and the other two on the opposing side. In theory should give me ample spacing similar to your two fans. As for canopy or hanging.....good question! I'd like to hang and get rid of my canopy but don't think it will be visually appealing without building some type of housing which then I might as well use my canopy I have now. And what should I keep an eye out for with the led/driver configuration?
