Thanks! Now it's time to take down our Easter decorations and put up the Halloween ones!

If there was a holiday worth decorating between Easter and Halloween, they wouldn't stay up so long.

What an Awesome tank!! Love hearing how people "score" good deals!! Can't wait to watch the build. Did you ever say what was going to go into this tank...? I'm sure it's buried a few pages back in this thread... or maybe things have changed? This opens the door for just about anything you want.

I'm committed to balas. I bought them on sale last week when they were on for $2.88 each at Big Al's. They are hanging with my silver dollars until the new tank is cycled. They're tiny, larger than the serpaes but smaller than the mollies.

So everything else has to be compatible with them. I'm thinking various barbs, and maybe clown or yoyo loaches, and possibly a sailfin pleco.

I found your post....You never said how many baby Bala's you bought?

They are going to look sweet schooling around and exploring and then racing the length of the tank!!

I got 5. They're good looking fish, as seen here:


The pic in my signature is actually them, but it's too small to see. Here it is:

Just had to share this I went to Peterborough tonight to look at some fish stores ended up at PJs pets and two fish that I'm looking for for my tank where they're really cheap. I bought nine bosemi rainbows and six clown Loches. The rainbows were three for $16 and they are usually 1299 each at big Al's the loaches where the medium-size ones which are on sale at my beguiles for 78 this weekend but I paid three for 18
