As you can see they are not as used to me hand feeding as Chesh's fish are BUT my female angel is B.A. so she doesn't care:

Lol I think you double posted. Your plants!! They have overtaken everything!! How can you see your fish but at feeding time?! It's gorgeous, tho! Also a great choice of a song. Fits your tank perfectly!!

Whatever happened to your baby cory?

Woops I did double post...lol. Chesh, could you please delete one of them?

HAHA I haven't seen my black bristlenose in like a month...it's scary. The albino one is hard to find too cause of all the plants.

Thanks :) I love that song!

As for the baby cory..he is now an adolescent cory hahah. They're all getting big FAST!

As for the angels...well...lol I need to figure out where I'm gonna put that 29 because I have NOOO idea. I'm kind of out of room with a 150 Gallon and 75 Gallon tank in my room. Sang knows the feeling LOL.

I'm getting really sick of this gravel in the 150. I'm considering switching it all out for sand. I'm just going to go full planted on it. i dislike non planted tanks...they look...boring. It's no fun hahah.
It's very unlikely that they will be able to get bigger yoyo in. The problem with many of these loaches is that they are wild caught, and don't readily breed in captivity. So the ones that are caught tend to be caught as small juveniles and shipped out world wide as that.

You'd have to get a source that also catches larger specimens, or have a store that has such a source.

Also love the videos but...I'm not confident a Black Ghost Knife is the best idea for your 150. These fish produce a weak electric current. As they get older and bigger they become predatory towards smaller fish so those Rasbora will have to watch out!

Also some fish get flightly and stressed around fish that produce such currents.

You bring up some good points Sang. I am going to have to change the stocking of the 150 as he/she gets bigger

My plan is to move out of my current living situation by the end of the year and get a bigger tank by this time next year.

If that happens the rasboras will be moved and I will have a strict predator tank

That's the plan anyways.

I love the song, and the video, too. . . hand feeding is so fun! If you keep doing it just like that, it won't be long before they all swarm you EVERY TIME your hands are in the tank. Makes water-changes and/or pruning a bit tricker - but it's worth it!

Ahhhh! I hope you get everything squared away for the ghostie, and find some buddies for the lonely loach. . .

I'm always happy when you come back to update! I think I need to see Frank and Lucas, though. . . please?!

So after I removed a BUNCH of plants from the tank (see attached images)



I took a video of the tank. I was able to get BOTH plecos!!!! Still no sign of the black bristlenose though.... I am hoping he just hides under the anubias rocks.... I got everyone else in the video though!


I then fed the 150 gallon. i got some footage of all the fish as well :)
