It's possible the tank could see another cycle, with the new surface area waiting to be colonized. It's been done before, but with Discus - I would find a new home for them while the tank transitions...

The large rock on the right looks menacing. It is frightening the smaller rocks. LOL

Seriously, though, that's the first thing that came to my mind. Looks good, though!

Looks amazing! I don't think I would have stocked it any differently! Turquoise Discus plus some neons and Harlequin Rasboras! Perfect!

I've had a GE 9325k bulb going for years now. No plans on changing it soon. I change them when the ends blacken beyond an inch or two.

White clouds did fine even in hot summers, for me. It was an in-ground 125gallon preform pond from Lowe's, though. Gambusia are indestructible, for sure. Honey Gourami would also do well. Throw some...

How cold are we talking? I kept White Clouds overwinter on the MS Gulf Coast. I imagine Tampa is warmer! These White Clouds had some of the most intense red tails I've ever seen!

Conversely, many argue that young Angels are more adaptable than larger Angels. Maybe not dime sized, but nickel to quarter sized, perhaps.
