That looks really great!!! I hope mine looks that good when I get it replanted. And yes it is brighter. I think that new light and balast did the trick!

Most of the larger fish have been taken out, in favor of more planted tank friendly fish. Today I got a pair of Kribs, from Trallen 44, an another peppered Cory. Now the tank has 8 Black Neons, 4 Sisor tail Rosaboras, 7 peppered corys, 2 Bolivian Rams, an a Bristle Nose.

The tank hasnt changed much, a new leaf here an there. Some algae on the edges of a few leaves, so I cut the lights on time to 6.5 hours.

Heres pics of some of the new fish.

Thanks Tim,

There colors are Bright for going half way across the country in a box. Everyone is getting along, thats your Cory in the first pic bottom right. The Kribs seem happy to be back together.

Your welcome Brion,

Yeah, they have colored back up great! Looks like they just switched tanks across the room rather than across the country. I didn't even notice all the many fish in the first pic untill you said something. They all kinda blended in but the albino really sticks out. LOL All those fish look great! I imagine they are happy to be back together since they are a proven breeding pair. Hopefully you have little kribs running around in the tank before too long.

It was really nice of him, they do look great in the tank. I was glad to see they were all doing well when I opened the box. Also got one of his Red Lizard Whiptails for the 29. Im stoked to have them, the fish selection locally isn't to good.

I understand about local selection. Luckily, a new pet shop opened that will order fish for me. Expensive, but high quality. I am still in love with your driftwood/rock formations. I wish I had that eye for creating such depth.

Thanks sewingalot, Thats a big complement to a 55 g. tank. I still think I can get a bit more depth when the plants grow in. I used the large formations 'cause I like cichlid tanks with all rocks. Like plants to much to have a African cichlid tank though.
