Excited today. Yesterday I got 8 cardinal tetras thru quarantine and into this tank! That brings me to 14 and thus twice as big as any other "school" I've owned in my time fishkeeping. Lights and CO2 were off, so this afternoon I'll actually get to see it all come together. It looked fun even with the tank lights off though. Lots of activity going to be in the tank now.
I also acquired my first cichlids ever, bolivian rams, and moved them into the vacated QT (was acclimating them into QT at same time as acclimating the cardinals to the 40)
3 this QT period, 3 the next QT period in a month or so and then hopefully out of the 6 I end up with 1 or 2 pairs. Still unsure how I want to play it in the main tank, wish it was easier to tell M/F and I'd attempt a group/harem. The way it is, I just hope for a pair and then give away the rest I suppose.
Will get some pics up.
Yellow abdomens were on the bolivians so I guess they are mature fish?
