Well that is cool, post some updates when you are able to get some pictures of them

Unfortunately, the hongsloi died. I am tempted to get another pair as our LFS has a bunch.
|Yesterday 11:31 PM|
lovely tank! I am curious did any of the hongsloi fry survive?
lets see some pix of the new apistogrammas
|Yesterday 11:27 PM|
Got sidetracked by projects and other obligations. My tank looked horrible so I trimmed it down. The Staurogyne repens carpet had died out so I bought a bunch and restarted it.
I lost all but two Emperor Tetra to carpet surfing. I also lost a few Cherry Barbs, and a few cardinals. Today, I went and purchased 15 Cardinals, 10 Emperors, 2 Otos, and a few Apisto agassizi Fire Red! looking forward to how this grows out.
I am looking to give away some of the Tiger Nymphaea as they are over running the tank.

Thanks! The tiger barbs are gone, I replaced them with cherry barbs - a lot less agressive.
I'm gonna post a video of the babies and momma, she's done a costume change - looks totally different from the other female.

Your tank is looking really nice Sundragon. That tiger lotus looks terrific.
And so do the tiger barbs by the way. I have always liked them but since I keep angels it is not to be for me. I am curious why your list for more fish does not include increasing that school.
As for the discus idea, I would have to vote no for this tank. It would completely upset everything that is working just right here; keep the idea for a larger tank. It IS a good idea, just not for this tank.
Keep the pictures coming!

24oz (2lbs) tanks last about ~2 months, but with EI dosing I upped the CO2 from 3bps to 4bps so I'm going to say 1.5 months.

I wanted Discus a while back - Not sure I want test my plants ability to deal with the warmer water (aside from finding homes for the other fish that can't tolerate the warmer temps)
Help me choose one of the below:
Edit: currently the tank's residents include 4 cherry barbs, small school of Pencilfish, small school of cardinals, 2 cory sterbai, 3 otos, 3 apistogramma, and a partridge in a pair tree... /Edit
Any other recommendations? I love schooling fish but I think something personality would be nice.

Tank is still looking GREAT!!!
The Pencil Fish are still my Faves! Glad to hear about the diffuser still going good! I am really thinking of going that route! About how long are the CO2 tanks lasting? Just wondering because my Son has a few of them from his Paint ball days, and I hate to see them just lying there when I could be using them!!!
Anyway keep up the GREAT WORK!

I've been reading the majority of this. In your most recent photos I noticed you have what looks to be a fan/wave mover for water. It seems to do a gentle job, what kind/type?

Just a little update:
The Coral red pencil males are coloring up and sparring. Here's a clip
I started to dose EI and the plants are pearling for the first time since I set up the tank but only on trace day for some reason.
