Thank you.

I like them too. Very clean. Makes me miss the gold gourami I had awhile ago. Did your cherry barbs have babies also?

Yes I just let them do it naturally in the tank. I didn't do any moving of eggs or parents. I went from having 5 to about 21.

Cool, same for me, I had 2 now I have 6.

Found your tank, looks pretty cool.
If you don't have a ride to the fall meeting, I have a place in the car ;)

Updated pictures for my tanks...

The 29 gallon as you can see has become a bit of a jungle. But the fish love it that way. Oh and sorry for the float plant mass... stuck that in there for the time being after the fish auction I went to yesterday.

The 55 Gallon is pretty much prefect as ever...

I did also get 9 new discus which I am currently keep in a bare bottom 40 gallon for growing out. I'll see about getting some pictures... although it's nothing spectacular =)

^ no pics..

nalu86 09-27-2011 03:49 AM

Good deals at the auction :)
You should consider swapping your 55 for a 75 or bigger if you want to keep all those discus in 1 tank. Just some advice ;)

Oh I would never put all those in a 55! That would be absurd! I have a 125 gallon that will be their home once they grow up =)

Shrug... I see them up there just fine. Any else having problems seeing my pictures?

Pics are fine here. The 55 looks great, and that is one massive gourami lol.

I was thinking about hanging my light above my 55 gallon instead of using the stands. I have a pretty high light output for not having CO2 on my, so I was thinking about raising it about a foot above my tank. I was planning on using hangers from wall and just hanging the light using chains. If anyone has a better hanging idea or any recommendations on how high I should hang my light they would be much appreciated.

10/10/2011 55 Gallon Update

http://i1177.photobucket.com/albums/...C_0391-1-2.jpg

I move a lot of the plants around. Added the pot. And my Tiger Lotus had sprout 2 runners. I'm going to let it shot out a few more for shade.
