It looks nice but does your Piranha constantly pull up the plants, I had 10 in a 55 gallon when I was in my 20"s and they destroyed everything I every put in the tank and made bare spots in the gravel, etc. Maybe the fact that yours is a single fish allow him/her to stay a little calmer, but it looks like a good eater and nice & fat.

Everyone now and then he has a spazz and rips out the plants that are in front of my drift wood... just floats to the top and then i replant... however im trying to find a way to add tiny weight heavy enough that it'll stay lol.

Another annoyance is on the left you see where i have my reactor 500... i got those plants in abunch... basically im waitting for them to grow very tall and then i can lower my reactor to the bottom because last time i had it low, he bite a nice chunk out of the co2 tube :/

And yeah hes a nice size but all he eats are bio gold +.... swoon he will be eatting shrimps, calarmi, tilapia soaked into garlic guard when i have the chance to start the food prep... just been so busy with finding plants, planting, and looking for either a peice of rock or new drift wood to add...

ideas ideas ideas!

edit Im also wondering if i should have longer lighting periods... as i think my glosso elatinoides would grow abit better... what do you think exactly?
