Tank looks lovely! What did you replace the plecos with? Are you satisfied with your CFS-500?

The plecos have always been in the tank. The starlight pleco has been nocturnal until recently after I took out the riparium plants. I'm not exactly sure why he decided to come out from the dark lol.

I pulled the rip plants because life got a hold of me and I simply let the tank run wild for the past 2 months. This enabled the rip plants to consume the entire topside and things just kinda started going South underwater. I figured I'd start fresh with the tank and keep the top clear for a bit just to change things up.

The pleco is a gem indeed. I just wish I would've been able to save a few more so this guy/gal wouldn't be so lonely.

Remind me where you bought that smokey film for the back glass again? And what was the brand name/type/price? I think it's time I added a little bling to my 90P for 2013, lol.

Good question; I can't decide if I like the smokey color or just straight up black...

Looks good Nick! I loved the riparium plants, but their absence helps focus all the attention to what's inside the tank.

Have a couple of fish questions for you - any pecking problems with just 3 angels? Are those Beckford pencils I see there?

I'm not sure if mine is black or smoked to be honest. It's been so long I forgot lol.

Thanks Nathan.

Pecking is not as bad now that there's only 3 of them left. 2 of them is actually a pair so the other one normally gets chased away but most of the time they're fine since they have much more room now for themselves.

Those are indeed Beckfords lol. Great eye bro! haha I couldn't even see them myself.

It is, yes. They have the smokey (10% I think) and the limo black (35%). It's the static cling stuff you put on with soapy water.
