It's doing great! I made quite a few changes though! I do not own any more puffers at all. I found a friend who had a fish tank much much bigger than mine, I think it was 150, and he took them, as well as my dwarf puffers. The live food and the nippiness increase was a problem for me and I wasn't happy that all my cories and my new bn pleco were getting their fins shredded. I changed it to a cichlid set up from the south/central american area. Granted the eel isn't from there, but my dad really wanted him, haha. I currently have the cichlids in my signature, and that's the final stocking. I must have gottena bad bunch of skunk cories because they all kinda died one by one except for this last guy who's still alive. I'll see if I can't trade him in for another panda, as one of mine mysteriously died.

Twenty-Eight:
1 Otos, 6 Guyana Leaf Fish, 2 Malayan Leaf Fish, 1 Orange Head Tapajos, 4 Bronze Cories, 3 Peppered Cories, 2 Panda Cories, 1 Skunk Cory

Seventy-Five:
3 Thread-finned Acara, 1 Jurupari, 1 Spiny Eel, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 1 Festivum, 1 Spotted Raphael

Oh wow that's one heck of a update right there. Would have never thought you'd part with your puffers....
That's real odd with your cory cats did you have any NO peaks with the change over when they were added? And where the heck is a picture of the new set up????

well i guess to each his own. sorry thye were messing up your little BN. Although I must say the DP's are just not as "personality" or even fun as I had hoped and heard.
mine were for a while very interesting, but then 1 day i reagrranged the plants and added co2, not the neons and the puffers are bottm tank dwellers who hide 99.9% of the time. occasionally I can see a few of them. They had been much more social un til that 1 day.
Who knows.
I do know cichlids are fun, we have a 90g right now all sorts of cichl,ids in there, all juveniles yet, but in due time I'm sure the community will be quite nice. (i have yet to post that anywhere yet)

Yeah you gotta post pics!!
especially try to snag your BN.
i cant find any here where i am at all. Though i did snag an L46 (captive bred, no worries any1) zebra pleco. Zeb is just the cutest little guy. (at 400 bucks he better be!! YIKES)
