Nice tank! I wish I had a larger house, that 10 foot wall was really too short for the 8 foot 180 gallon tank. Miss all that running room though. The black neons adored it. I guess the blood fins, black neons and rummy noses are having a really good time zooming back and forth, am I right?

The tank has about 50+ fish and it is more alive than it has ever been. The (5) 12 inch fish in there previously would just hover around all day, until feeding time.

I would say the most active fish are the blood fins and the zebras. The rummy noses are the most shy but they have only been in the tank for 2 days so maybe they will come out of their shell.

Just got done with a 3 day blackout to get rid of some BGA. Worked well. Been out of Phospho for a week now so it was a good time to do it. My Potassium Phosphate should arrive tomorrow. CO2 is still low. I need a second inline diffuser for my other canister filter. Poor at the moment so I'll have to deal for now. Still waiting on my Pumpkin Neos and getting antsy. Got a few Amanos and some sunkists but I never see any of the shrimp till water change day.

Wow I can only wish for a tank like that my wife wount let me build one but I do have or can get the materials to do it tho. That algae was thick, I don't think it's a battle when u have algae like that, it's a full blown war. Lol. Saweeeeeeeeeeet set up tho.

PS. I got some apongeton plants that would go great with that tank they are huge, also got a ton of ricca an moss, crypt spirals, jungle vals too.

Ya she is a beauty. Sad I have to let her go. I'll be downsizing to a 40-60 gallon. Should be cheaper and easier to maintain.
