I'm not very concerned about the wood... if it starts rotting, which i doubt it will, it just means I've an opportunity to get a bigger tank in there while I fix it

|kevreh||Nice build, I always like to see built-in tanks. Make sure you seal that wood, moisture and raw wood... not the best thing.|

|HunterX||Great looking tank Scape! Lets get that conroller going !|

i'll take a look at that screening. Still debating whether or not I really care. The killies are more getting themselves into the overflows more than out of the tank. I keep fishing one female out of the outlet overflow, and another from the sump... pain in the butts

scape, two fish I'd like to see you try...
Haplochromis sp. "flameback"
Haplochromis sp. "ruby"
I've had them both and they are not so crazy....
Also, search for "clear aquarium netting"....in 1/4".....mounted like window screen on a window screen frame, it fits inside the top molding on the tank and stops jumpers

the killies are slowly offing themselves... they're quite the jumpers.
I have a small handful of Jae barbs coming in; which are a small, 1.5", rarer african community fish. It's looking like i'll get around 6. i'm hoping to breed them in my breeding tanks and raising the fry. I'd love to place around 50-60 in the tank.
also keeping an eye out for a pair of ctenopoma ansorgii

|dewalltheway||Your tank & setup looks great.|

Man, loving your congos. When they reach full size, oh man they are a fish to behold.
What's your current stock? And are you still thinking of staying african community? There are a few african fish that I keep that have been working super nicely with plants and other fish that make a large community, namely smaller upper jaw bichirs and rope fish, as well as ctnepoma and african knife fish, and I presume/have seen african butterfly fish work as well.

|NYCaqua||I tried to get a nice school of male congos before. But out of the 16 i purchased i got 2 males(bought them very small). Horrible luck on my part. But i see more retailers selling guaranteed males nowadays already showing their color. How did you purchase yours?|

|Phil Edwards||That's looking great! Next time I get out toward Philly I'll have to come see it in person.|
