Ya. I lose half of my oto and pygmies always. Then the rest live for a while. I guess wild caught is the reason !

What fish is that with the clear body and pink strip?

Love the 60-F, I'm thinking of getting one too.

they glow under some lighting. My moon lights make them glow. It's kinda weird because you can't see the fish, just the stripes.

I picked them up from a distributor. They had a huge tank full of them. They are known to get sick easier and die due to all the stress of getting ink'd. Then you include all the regular shipping and stuff that happens. I had a pair that were quite hardy. The orange male I had died during the tank swap. Purple one seems to be alot less shy with the orange gone.

DS's plastic shallow box. Now Stocking shrimp!

Now stocked!

Red rillis and yellow poso rabbit snails(aka the vacuum cleaners) from bandaiban.

Was desperately in need of a cleaning crew. Now will pick up a few Pygmy cories and oto and this tank is done stock wise!

Super cool dude.
Also picked up some blue pearls for another tank I'm working on.

















Bonus. Here's the second tank. Low tech experimental tank.
Half the height. A little longer and less wide footprint. Will put up a second thread or post updates in this thread when I get it up.

That's so cool how you can get any size tank with those acrylic panels. Do you get them cut somewhere professionally? And how do you silicone them together? Not that I want to do it, just curious. Probably if I had the room, I'd love to have one in a 120F or 33L dimensions!

BTW, nice stock. I had red rilis once but accidentally CO2 nuked them all. LOL

i gotta be careful with the co2. I've been injecting a constant low low bubble count to keep ph from moving around. worried it will nuke once it empties!


Newbieplanter on here works on acrylic. luckily for the boston city people he's local! I just kind of give him dimensions and he works his magic.

The acrylic is cut to size then buffed and glue'd. The glue kinda melts the plastic together so there's no silicone. If Ike (Newbieplanter) sees this post, i'm sure he'll chime in.

Great. Like the idea of the new tank, that should be crazy shallow though, half the height of a 60F...is that even considered a tank anymore lol. Should be interesting.

I've read conflicting things on Rabbit Snails + Plants. How are yours faring? I think I may have convinced my wife, if they won't eat our plants.
