Really beautiful tank. I tried dp's in a community tank but had problems with the puffers not getting to the food on time! So I moved them into their own tank. Have you noticed any problems with that so far?

Wow, beautiful job! The automation system is so far beyond me. LOVE the thunderstorm cycle.

I was also interested to see how the puffers do. They were on my original wish list, but several people warned me that they may eat everything in my 37 gallon tank.

Gold Barbs! They are relatively peaceful for a barb, although they dont play well with small shrimp as I discovered.

The tank is doing well with the puffers. I feed pretty heavily, and there are lots of little snails for them to eat as well. I seed the tank with snails regularly so they have a natural food to graze on.

A splendid update! Do you happen to know the name of the broad leafed, light green plant thats a few spaces away from the left? Used to have that in my 20g and it grew so fast and so big I had to get rid of it. Great choice for this tank though!

I also love the algae on the vortech for some strange reason.

i have to agree with everyone else, the whole set up is amazing. i just cruised through the whole thread, i can't believe you sync'd the thunder storms up with the lunar cycle. you have seemingly thought of everything.

Hey Gareth, long time no see! I love this build, well executed. As always I bow down to your technical skills. That lighting and sound system is over the top!

Tank update will happen soon. I had a bit of a disasterous crash after my co2 tank leaked/dumped right before I went on vacation. It led to a massive algae explosion as my lights and fert schedule are pretty dependant on co2.

Im about to do an extensive gutting of the tank and replant everything.
