Talking Thanks!

Hey guys, my tank has been up and running for a couple months now, and I have my complete stock list in
So I would just like to say...thanks! Thanks to everyone who helped me out with my tank, sure couldn't have done it without this forum! Started out knowing very little. My tank is 2 fish overstocked but it's fine while they're small I think. I've got 5 Yellow Labs, 6 Elongatus Kanchedzas, and 6 Mainganos. They are in a 50 gallon, ph 8 , gh 150 ppm. They all get along great. And as of this morning....I think one my my kanchedzas is holding!!! My first baby fish!!! Haha. Her mouth isn't bulging too much mainly from the bottom, but she also isn't pretty active and isn't eating. So ya, thanks guys! I'll put up a vid and pictures in my aquarium log as soon as i can (my only tank in my aquariums).

When i bought the tank (used)

I'll put some pics on of how it is now l8r

That's doing well, glad to hear it. May I offer a suggestion on the background? Plain non-shiny black would serve to add a perception of depth, it would make the filter tubes and heater almost invisible (wold blend in), and the rock and fish colours would be very lovely and stand out. Plain black construction paper, as long as it is not shiny, works well.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
