Tank has been running for quite a few days now but today I rehomed the cats.
Still have a few more anubias to toss in and adjustments to be made on some once i get to stare at it a bit.

Tank "ideas"
Id like to have a few different anubias, preferably round leaf types.
Possibly try a buce or two, moss farm

Ultimate goal:
Happy cats, NO bga, healthy anubias.

Thats not too much to ask for right?

Bump: These guys faces are so inviting.
That is, until its time to eat.

While its a nice tank, Raphael catfish need a longer footprint not taller, a 30g or even better a 55g would be more comfortable for them as they get bigger.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

Thumbs down

How many Raphael cats have you owned? Any real experience?
Yes, as they get bigger, they will have new homes BUT after 2 years plus with these guys they are only 3" and 3.5" Reaching a max of 7" and live up to 20 plus years.

original reply removed.....decided to be the bigger person and not justify the childish and unnecessary aggression with a response.

If you are so extremely insulted by my post feel free to contact an admin/mod and request it to be removed.

Not insulted. It's just that I can "use the google" too but I also see what my fish respond to most and that's security and food.

Few more tossed in. Few rocks moved around.
No losses and a few new shoots started.

Going well. Constant pearling bubble trails from most of the petites. Removed quite a few older leaves.
Thanks!
