I have 2 GBRs. They are a pair. They got along great, and never bothered each other, until they had a batch of eggs go missing. After that the boy pecked at the female for a couple days, now they are best friends again. They dont even acknowledge my rummynose tetra or ottos. I like them a lot

Okay cool, that's what I was wanting to hear. That sounds so cute to have a pair of them, I was just hoping they wouldn't get territorial with other fish. Do they breed often and what do you do with the babies?

I think I'm pretty set on my fish stocking now and my cycling should finish in a week or so.

I think I'll go with:
2 GBRs
~12 or so forktail rainbowfish
and then a few amanos and otos

I checked Aqadvisor and the stocking is a little bit over 100% but I assume that will be alright if I keep on top of the water changes and such. Other than that I just need to make sure the water parameters are okay. This seem alright or should I rethink some of it?

Oh wow haha poor things. That sounds fun watching how they interact together so I think I'll get a couple

Haha thank you, I'm glad I could provide some inspiration for you! Looking forward to seeing what you've got going on too! I took a look at your 125 and it looks really nice, I like the layout of it. Is it the 75 that you're about to rescape?

Some new hardware came in! Quick disconnects on the inflow and outflow tubes will make cleaning the lily pipes much simpler, which also means I'm more likely to clean them often. Tried them out and they worked great and I was able to get off some green on the tubes and pipes that had already been building up over the past couple weeks, as you can tell in the picture.

So far things are still coming along pretty well. The plants are really starting to grow in, especially the moss. Will probably need to begin trimming that soon. I really like how the Nesaea looks popping out in front of the Bolbitis, hoping the other plants in the back take off soon, they were a little smaller when I got them.

All in all I think things are looking good so far, getting a bit of algae on the sand and glass occasionally that I have to clean up. Can't wait until I have shrimp and oto's to help out . I did manage to get a few snails with my plants so they seem to be cleaning it up some.

Still in the process of dosing ammonia to cycle it, going kinda slow but I think I should be able to get my livestock early next month.

Thanks for looking, here's a couple more shots:





Sorry for the quality, using my phone for right now. May try to borrow my friend's camera to get better shots sometime.
