I think that stocking is fine as long as you monitor your nitrate level and make sure it doesn't get too high. If it does, you can always add more plants or increase your WC schedule. Plecos do tend...

I think this boils down to how comfortable you are feeding your fish live food and if you see snails as just another food source for your fish. Live snails are commonly fed to dwarf puffers, and I've...

You're welcome! Out of curiosity, what type of Platys are you keeping? I kept Platys a long time ago (well over 5 years ago) and I really enjoyed the intense coloration on them, especially the...

Thanks! Yeah, I've been toying around with the idea of getting an RO/DI unit so that I don't have to worry about external sources effecting the water.

You sure are right about that. My aquariums...

That current stocking looks fine to me. I would make sure your bamboo shrimp has a good location that receives a lot of current so that it can filter food particles. I've always wanted to keep one...

Thank you! It's one of my favorite plants as well, despite it often being overlooked due to its "beginner level" status.

It's been awhile since I've updated this thread. Here was a picture of the...

I'm a huge fan of Parachromis cichlids, especially managuense. They tend to get fairly large though, so if I went with a parachromis, it'd probably be a friedrichsthalii, motaguense, or loisellei....

That sounds like a good plan. I'm sure GTs are enough of a wet pet that Kai will more than fill the tank by himself, both physically and personality wise. I look forward to seeing how the aquascape...

Kai looks great! I really enjoy the aquascape. Now that you won't be breeding anymore, do you plan on adding any tank mates for him?

Those look like detritus worms to me. They aren't harmful, and once the tank is cycled, your new fish will likely eat them up.

I feed my rams and tetras NLS Thera-A, Ken's premium tropical flakes, and bloodworms once a week. Plecos, otos, and amano shrimp get zucchini and Ken's veggie wafers. My betta gets NLS betta pellets.

I like it so far. It's definitely a lot of filtration for the tank, but that allows me to go awhile without having to clean the canister (besides switching out filter floss every now and then). It's...

Nice aquariums! They all have a distinct look to them. Your fish are also very beautiful, especially Sally and Black Phillip. What do you usually feed your cichlids?
