Well all the plumbing is done and a water change has been done in less than 30 minutes.

Here are some pics of the setup:

This is where it all starts. The can on the left is holding aged water that has been heated to ~80F and de chlorinated with Seachem Prime. The can on the right is for the waste water to get pumped into. The waste then goes down a drain in the floor and out in the lawn.


The following picture is on the Pecs tubing running above the drop down ceiling in the basement.


This is the Pecs coming up through my floor in my bedroom. It will be cut and wound up behind my dresser when not in use.


The next to pictures contain the refill adapter. The short piece of PVC is a coupler that allows me to take the filler off and put on an attachment to attach my Python for cleaning and draining.




The final pic. is of the PVC attachment that my Python goes on.

After a long awaited and stressful week I came home and found my two Gold Pearlscales have paired up and laid their second spawn. The first one I screwed up...my bad. They laid on the amazon sword I sold and when I went to clip the leave off they had eaten them all.

Well now I have slates in there for them and they were actually cleaning up the DW and then were like "[censored][censored][censored][censored] it, I'm not cleaning all the algae off". lmao If you don't know anything about angels they clean the surface until it's spotless before they lay the eggs on it. So after giving up on the DW they laid on the slate. This morning 6 eggs were bad, right now there are about 25. The female is working hard fanning the eggs keeping them clean. They male is also helping out (which I've read is very good since most females wont let males help for fear of them eating the eggs). So far he is doing great and hasn't ate a thing.

Well here's an update shot of my tank along with my fry rearing system from angelsplus. I know the jar can go in a smaller tank but I don't need to be paying to heat two tanks right now. I also know that the CO2 it going to off gas quite a bit but what can you do. I'm running to the store right now to get a turkey baster to suck them up. I will post a pic of them in the jar when I get time.

I don't think the jar takes away from the tank to much.

I basically is. The two sponges keep the fry in between and prevents the other fish from eating them while constantly circulating the water in the jar.

Oh no...and now it begins....

The other two by chance (sex unknown) have .......guess what, PAIRED UP!!! Oh my god so many angles!!! I got home today and I have 100+ eggs on my filter intake. Some of the first brood has started free swimming, only about 3 or 4 of them though the rest are still wiggling. Hopefully tomorrow most will be free swimming and they can start eating BBS.
