I have to say, that 50 percent off Win closing sale really helped get this tank started - in fact I used a spare aquaclear filter just last night as a temporary pre-filter, and a few plants are still around from that first grab bag, especially the red cabomba. The topper is the 10 Emperor Tetra, half of which survived a nasty bout of levamisole treatment and now are the kings of the tank (4 are males, 1 female, so those guys are really showing some great color and fin structure now!)

Hmm, I took 40 of the emperors and all of them survived. None had any disease as well.

Mine had camallanus worms - really put a stopper on any new fauna until that was all cleared out. Good news though is that the treatment killed it all off and it was a good wake up call to be vigilant! None of the newer additions to the tank have them after a month so all's good, but yep, lost half of the first adds to the tank that way.

Atleast you get to SEE them in the fish dept, only ones I see are on register.

The grass isn't always greener in the other tank.

Got in some thicklip 'sunset' gouramis at sheepshead bay petco. Interesting fish that I haven't seen around. As well as lemon tetras.
