Oh, sorry man.
They were sharp. Thanks for bearing with me, and my lack of investigation! I'm going to look into adding those to my tank.

No Problem...You will love them. Just make sure you get at least 4 if not 6 of them. Mine loved to interact with each other and also with the other fish. One in particular would get side by side with a rainbow and mirror it's every move. I usually don't get attached to fish but these were really special. My Clowns are even more so since I have had them since I started in the hobby in January of 2006.

My group (5) of zebras love to mix it up with my Rainbows too! So much character in loaches.

Well....new year..new beginnings!
Some changes going to be taking place with this tank over the next month and I am pretty exicited.

1st... I am completely re-doing my plumbing and will post pics as I go. I have ordered my stuff and it is on its way. One major change will be the additional of (3) Purigen Reactors as found in the following builds...

http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/eq...n-reactor.html
http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/di...13-larger.html

I will also be adding an Inline CO2 diffuser from GLA (Link) Orlando is also making me up new needle valves for my Milwaukee regulator since the needle valves that come with the regulator are junk!

I will also be building a new Rex Grigg Style CO2 reactor to replace my old one.

I am adding a 304 Fluval filter to this setup for more filtration and flow in this tank because with the amount of fish I have, I need more!

Then what I am really excited about is the addition of some new fish!!! I ordered from Drs Fosters & Smith the following fish that will go in this tank

(4) YoYo loaches. I lost all 6 of mine last summer and can't wait to get these back in my tank.

(4) Panda Garra (Link) I had 2 of these a couple of years ago in my riparium and I loved them! They are such a neat fish and Drs F/S got some more in stock.

(16) Rummy Nose Tetras - I have about 8 right now and wanted to boost the quantity of these in hopes they school better. Love these fish as well.

(1) Rio-Negro Pleco (L 135) - I haven't had a pleco in this tank for quite awhile and without spending alot of money on one or getting one that is common but gets 12" long, this guy looked like a good option. He should help to keep down my algae on my glass and plants.

(4) Streba Corys I have 3 Julii Cory cats right now and with the addition of these 4 guys will be awesome.

I will also be using my gift cards to a couple local pet stores to be boosting my school of Harlequin Rasboras to provide more upper level fish.

I know what you are all thinking.....Holy Cow, you have way to many fish in that tank! You may be right but I have kept a community of fish like this with no problems and it is such an enjoyment to watch them interact with each other. Plus, these fish are peaceful and the ones that are semi-aggressive I either keep just one or have a school of them so they pick on each other and not the other fish.

I am pretty excited and will be posting pics of the new fish and new modifications as I go. Will be a great start to a new year! (I hope)
