They actually have a salt water pool/tank where you can snorkel with the fishes... for only $45 a day per person. A little too expensive for me. I'll just go to the beach. But I should have took pictures of that tank. Maybe the next time I go.

star wars, planted tanks, and legos? parenting done right. you better keep that kid.

are you keeping the storm troopers in there when you flood? kidding, but nice growth update. This is turning out to be so awesome.

on a side note, that's nuts that the CPDs go for that much. Oh well. At least the club benefits. So much cheaper on the internet though... even so, they don't seem like that great of a fish. They don't school nicely, they are very timid, they eat shrimplets, and are prone to jumping. Doesn't sound like a good buy to me.

Thanks! I did find some CPDs at Aquascapes last week. So far most of them are schooling around with my other fish. Only 2 out of 8 are hiding in the back. I also bought some Emerald Rasboras... I think I like their color better than the CPDs and so far no one has jumped.

Thanks! I always wanted to do a Legoscape(maybe in the next tank). My HC usually grows upward and I trim it and spread it around the open spots. I think it's the high humidity in my area that helps it out. Your tank is looking Great! I have to try UG one of these days!

Excellent scaping! Really impressive for the tank height!

Thanks for the comment! I have added a new stone in there because I'm still not totally happy with the right side.

Yep, I'm still in DSM. But I have to flood it soon for a show in mid October... I'm not sure it'll be ready by then.

"I bet this will be the highest money maker".

He looked at me funny and asked "do they get any bigger?"

I said "no, that's full grown". Most of the members are cichlid breeders.

When the auction item 150 came up, there were three of us bidding... and long story short, the CPDs went for $53 and swam home with someone else.

Should I have gone to $60($20 a fish)? Would you pay more for these? Anyone got some for sale?

Thanks!

DAMN!!! I just went to Aquascapes in Aiea and they had some in stock for ~$7-8 a piece!!!!

Not much to update but I will be flooding soon. The lfs is having an exhibit/contest that I might enter, if this tank is ready. Oh, I did add another stone to the right side(it's in the back).

I also have to choose my fauna. So far it's either going to be a betta or threadfin. Any other suggestions?

Here's a pic of the new stone and my choice of fish for now. Enjoy!



My Threadfin Rainbow fish







My only clear pic of him flaring...



My Betta (Sorry, I was too lazy to get a better angle)

Hehe, yeah, it's a good thing I didn't buy it at the auction... I got some from Aquascapes about 2 weeks ago.
