I like them too. Very clean. Makes me miss the gold gourami I had awhile ago. Did your cherry barbs have babies also?

Yes I just let them do it naturally in the tank. I didn't do any moving of eggs or parents. I went from having 5 to about 21.

Found your tank, looks pretty cool.

Updated pictures for my tanks...

The 29 gallon as you can see has become a bit of a jungle. But the fish love it that way. Oh and sorry for the float plant mass... stuck that in there for the time being after the fish auction I went to yesterday.



The 55 Gallon is pretty much prefect as ever...




I did also get 9 new discus which I am currently keep in a bare bottom 40 gallon for growing out. I'll see about getting some pictures... although it's nothing spectacular =)

Good deals at the auction
You should consider swapping your 55 for a 75 or bigger if you want to keep all those discus in 1 tank. Just some advice

Oh I would never put all those in a 55! That would be absurd! I have a 125 gallon that will be their home once they grow up =)

I was thinking about hanging my light above my 55 gallon instead of using the stands. I have a pretty high light output for not having CO2 on my, so I was thinking about raising it about a foot above my tank. I was planning on using hangers from wall and just hanging the light using chains. If anyone has a better hanging idea or any recommendations on how high I should hang my light they would be much appreciated.

10/10/2011 55 Gallon Update



I move a lot of the plants around. Added the pot. And my Tiger Lotus had sprout 2 runners. I'm going to let it shot out a few more for shade.
