and I figured I would include a decent picture (hard to capture these quick small guys) of one of my young male tiger endlers and a couple lil fry harassing a hidden RCS
Hey, great looking tank. I'm putting mine together tonight and like you, I have a heater like yours also. How is it working out in that compartment? Is there enough circulation in there next to the hose to keep the whole tank at proper temperature? Right now I have mine suctioned to the black plate inside the tank, not in the filter compartment.

andrewss not much to report... have given away somewhere around 30 or so endlers (number includes some pretty small fry) to local club members to keep this tank within reasonable numbers

plants are all sustaining, so things are good

the cherries and endlers make for constant breeding and easy

bubbless Really nice tank! I like you choice of flora and fauna.

andrewss I haven't witnessed any of that but maybe it happens when I'm not looking.... that said the RCS's in the tank have had no trouble producing PLENTY of offspring

eco I've been enjoying yout tank for a while! One question, has your endlers ever took a nip at the shrimp?Have you seen the endlers around shrimplets? I've got hybrid tigers but I'm too afraid they'll make a meal of my neo's! Btw nice tank! e

andrewss haha ya that assassin is so funny with the moss hat

the cray died a lil while back unfortunately - though I never saw him get a shrimp, they were always too fast for him.
