Your plants look great in there! Glad that turned around for you! Any chance we could get a whole tank shot?

Thanks everyone. We haven't had a fish die in months. We keep thinking the ropefish is dead, as he'll disappear for a couple of days, but then he'll show up out of the blue. Since we added the big fish we see him a lot more, as they frequently go in the cichlid stones, where he used to spend all his time undisturbed.

















Here's a video of my Silver Dollar tank. The Leopard Bush fish and the Bleeding Heart Tetras have nearly doubled in size since we got them. The big Silver Dollar I took in for a friend of mine who had him in a big tank with some really aggressive fish. I've had him since around Christmas and he's still a little skittish.


Finally got some real plants in the tacky rainbow tank. Eventually we'll replace all the fake ones with real. My big catfish makes a rare appearance in this. Well, his tail anyway.

Discus are beautiful fish, and if I had the money I would love to have a school of them on their own. But they retail here for $60 for small ones to $100+ for larger ones. I'm just too cheap. We usually spend less than $15 per fish. I think once we spent $20.00

Discus colors are amazing. Some of the patterns are stunning.

Your 220 is looking amazing!! Those plants really filled in! Your "small" tanks are looking great, too! Funny to think of them as such because that's the largest tank I own, but they are small compared to your monster!
