Hey all. Since there's been a couple responses on here since, I've been gone, I'll update.

This tank is still up but a little neglected, as I've started a nano reef tank. I'm really enjoying the new challenges and the beauty of reefing.

This 10 gallon tank has not been rescaped, but I did move to a new house, so things got stirred up a little. I have 2 adult female peacock gudgeons surviving, and 5 young, who live with them together. There's also a couple otos and a lone siamese algae eater. I'm probably going to break the tank down eventually. The alternative, I think, is to convert it back to an endler or livebearer tank, since I really did enjoy this tank when it was full of rapidly breeding fish. I'll probably take out the last of the stem plants too, as they require too much maintenance for me.

just got done reading this entire thread. I just wanted to say thank you for doing such a detailed thread with great information and great pictures. I wanted to know if you have a link to the light you were using. I tried looking it up, but the one I found was out of stock and im not even sure if that was the right one. Also you never needed a heater since the temp always stayed at 78 degrees? That most have been one warm appt your were living in.
If I didn't just add red crystal shrimp to my 20 gallon I would be interested in those grudgeon's ( sorry if I spelled wrong) I have never seen them before and they are beautiful. Thanks again for a awesome thread!!!!!

Thanks a lot, Darth Toro. It seems like most sites arent carrying my light fixture anymore, which isnt a huge surprise since it is over 2 years old now. Here's a link from Current's site: http://www.current-usa.com/satellite.html Mine is model 1002. 40 watt single bulb.

The gudgeons are beautiful and relatively rare. That's why I had to have them. Good luck with your crystals!
