Well after 3-years and various scapes this tank is coming to an end. As we speak this tank is going through its final water change, Saturday morning it will be torn down and a 40B aquarium will be going up in its place. It has been a fun run full of learning and BBA lol. I am looking forward to the experiences with the 40b with a much better footprint and more choices for fish.
Please stop by the new journal and follow along
Thanks for following along!

Also, can't wait to see the new setup. Do you plan on selling the bowfront after the upgrade? Let me know if it's not already claimed...I really like that tank and have been thinking about replacing the riparium with a larger planted setup.

I am only a month or two away from tearing this tank down and putting the 40b up in its place, I cannot wait!!

Wow its been a while since I last posted pics. Nothing new, really. I no longer have any Praecox rainbows, they are just such a week fish from the mass breeders I have a hard time getting them to live longer than a year. I have given up on them until I get the 40b setup, then I might find someone with a pure strain of Pagai Praecox and give them a go. My Herbertaxelrodi are having fun in the tank, they are the largest fish and are not afraid to show it. The tons of tiny endlers are still multiplying like crazy. I have given up on trying to control the population, and plan to give every last one of them to Aqua imports when I go to setup my 40B, which will be a mainly rainbow setup. I sourced the rainbows I plan for that tank if anyone wanted to see the journal I have setup for it, it is in my sig.
Here is a few pics. (please ignore the little BBA I have lol, its being stubborn.)
My sub-dominant Male Herbertaxelrodi in his breeding colors
My Dominant male, his back is much higher than the sub male. they all get along great.
I have yet to make it to the tank to catch any eggs. the endlers are like little sharks! one of these days I will put a spawn mop in the tank and see if I can get some nice babies out of em. They seem to be a decent strain bred by someone local (given as credit to one of the LFS's)

Noah I like the Tank and cant wait to see the 40 B. I really wished there was larger following in CO for a planted tank enthusist. Would like to meet you some time to look at your tanks.

|jahmic||Nice! I almost picked one up myself at the last petco sale...but decided to wait maybe another year. Look forward to seeing the new build, glad to hear the bowfront is still rocking|

I am having a problem with my stellatus (broad leaf) after a major replant the other week they decided to drop all their lower leaves. We will see how they go this next couple weeks. no noticeable growth out of them either since the replant. Great color though.
this tank is nearing its end as well. in about 6-9 months I am going to be tearing it down for a tank with better dimensions. I was given the ok to buy a 40 breeder, the shallower tank will make it easier to get the right light level at the substrate, and the longer and deeper tank will make my rainbows happier. I have a lead on some pretty rare Rainbows, and once I get the 40B setup, I am going to see about acquiring a group of them. I really want more Kamaka's as well, they are great fish, and apparently good jumpers. I lost my female Kamaka due probably to a mosquito or moth that flew a bit to close to the water top.
No new pictures yet, but hopefully at the end of the week if I get some stellatus growth.
