Also there are many cichlids (Rams, angels) that make good community residents but unlike most cichlids (tough!) Rams should only be added to established and stable systems.
I found out quickly that my tank wasn't yet stable, however it is doing very well now. I lost one of my Rams, and one of my rasboras, but now everything is flourishing. It surprises me how quickly I forgot the do's and don'ts from the last time I kept fish. I'm also in the process of re-homing the loaches to a friend's 125 gallon.

Anyway, here are some pictures, taken with an Olympus OM-D, with a 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3, and an old vintage OM 50mm f/1.4 from the 70's.
