wkndracer haha hey there! Still here and still tanking dirt.
Nothing much to update as things are static. Without any real changes not much to post about in updates.

Just repeating the same posts on LFABN and angelfish spawns, pics of the same scapes untill I break something down or move. Kinda out of room for more DIY with 25 wet boxes already.

110g w/30g sump (56K warning)

What a fascinating set-up! I'm following two of your tanks and love the assortment of angels. The lush plants are awesome backdrops!

10g wiggler, free swimmer to pea tank

29g grow out

*** note the sparkle of color below the dorsal in this pic because you'll see it again

The spawn threw lots of smoke.

Last three that I kept were re-homed last Saturday because they had started to get pre spawn pushy and sadly I'm out of tank space.

Koi and blue's are now kept apart here but betting the gene mix will throw interesting wildcards. I'm looking forward to the phone call when these spawn at they're new home.

On the brighter side of things. Spawn x2

Time available and some not so nice tanking experiences have had me not updating the journals but events on the brighter side I thought I'd share.
3 pairs of angelfish have called my 110g home for some months along with my LFABN breeders. With the adult Ancistrus and other pairs present spawns haven't lasted much past three days (go figure).

This pair has claimed center tank for several months and the amazon swords planted there.

Imagine my surprise six days after a spawn occurred the end of January (and disappeared) when I discovered a wiggler group being fiercely defended by exhausted parents.
While the parents had developed enough skills to protect them from they're tank mates they couldn't stop the giant. I stole the fry clutch. While harvesting those angel fry I realized after months of not spawning my BN's had a tended group in the log,,,, so I stole those kids too.

Back in the baby business .
The 5g fry tank has a sponge filter, heater and free floating water sprite. The roots are a great anchorage point for wigglers and the rapid growing plant strips the water of any produced ammonia.

2/9/2013 (angelfish 2nd day free swimming).

2/16/2013 I think the photos show the plants have almost doubled in trailing root size and the Koi fry are developing fins. The baby BN's do a fantastic job of vacuuming up any missed BBS and have moved up to eating zucchini and algae wafers.

happy to have babies again!

xjasminex Hello wkndracer!
Im really interested in where you got your MS kit like to redo my 55 gallon with one before i go big with a future 100+ gallon tank!
Im loving the look of your tank and a slate background is perfect for a 55 gallon since its not very deep!
Inspiration is the name of this tank for me!
Thanks for posting it!

wkndracer Hey Drew! Tank needs the glass cleaned BAD but here are some high coverage Koi pics for ya. Koi from Baskington lines. Currently keeping 8 in the 110. Just going to say that my arms are feeling old. 3D is compliments of a new clicker for the pics.

BoxxerBoyDrew Any Updates on this tank Racer???

I don't know how you do it, but the last few sets of fish pics look as if they are 3D! Almost look as if the fish are PhotoShoped in!!! I know they aren't, but looks great!


p.s. How has your arm been doing?

P.S.S. the last posts were on my B-Day! LOL On this and the 40B thread!
