That's just too cool, are you focusing on African cichlids then? I saw the discus and angels but half the house seemed to be Lake Malawi fish, other types of fish going on the other half or more cichlids? Also, did you put spray insulation on the ceiling as well?

No the other half of the building is all for angels and discus. And yes i used spray insulation on ceiling as well. Temp outside last night was 40 degrees and building maintained 76 degrees with no help of heating.

Will you have Apistogramma species? Such as the Borellii, Agassizzi and Cockatoo?

I know I could never handle all the work you've put into your fish room, but it is nice to dream. You've done a great job, I'm jealous! It's cool seeing another Mississippian on here too. I'm a couple hours north, just outside of Jackson.

Spray insulation is pretty sweet then...I'll have to keep that in mind if I build an outbuilding for a fish room in the future, though it probably get a bit colder here in Michigan than down south.

Amazing isn't it! LOL! I will keep watch on your fish status. I'm not looking to get any apistos right now anyway, just have been thinking about getting some in a year or so and thought I'd see if you were going to breed them. I will keep an eye on your tanks so if I do decide to get some and you have some, I will be sure and buy from you.

Pair of midas hatched eggs today. Had 1 week old babies when we bought the pair so they should do good with these.
