No pics yet but here's an update:
Black and gold angelfish are growing considerably.
Discus are doing well with 2 of the most dominant also growing.

Shrimps finally shredded to death by angelfish and rams.

I barely even knew you had this thread on here!!!!! Nice pic's and everything. Just going to be honest with you, I like your tank but you need to get a few more plants to fill the tank up a little. It just seems seem dull right now. Or maybe its just the pic hmmm but I like the fish and the tank. Great job !

I know, Nick. But will you believe that my lfs has limited selection of plants? It's boring to even shop in my lfs. If I get back to Manila on vacation, then I'll concentrate on shopping for more plants.

I'm frustrated to not even shop for rechargeable batteries yet for my camera. But I'll just buy disposable ones. Oh, heck. Who cares. I'll try to see if I can gather and post pics here later

Well, just an update here:
8 discus-2 most dominant ones are doing well with frequent fights but nothing too severe.
22 golden pencilfish-lost 3 and the black angels are probably smiling.
4 glass bloodfin
2 threadfin rainbows
8 angelfish
3 bolivian ram
1 blue ram
-fully-matured and engaging battles with bolivian rams
1 ancistrus-Can't figure out the gender but I think it's a female.
10 kuhli loach

Big changes in the stocking list because of disease outbreak(particularly columnaris and dropsy) but all is well.

Update: New Blue Rams
Just to let you know, I finally obtained 3 new young blue rams(1 male and 2 females). Now, if only, my old boy blue ram stop getting so attracted to the young female as my young female seems happy to get all the attention.
My females rams are displaying too bright colors and are probably Czech Blue Rams owing to their bright coloration which seems similar to the wild blue rams.

Tsk...I'm a cynic for not updating it with pics. Remind me to post pics of my blue rams on October 5. I have hectic schedule ahead of me so no time for pics this month.

By the way, I bought the blue rams yesterday(Sept 22, 2006). And none too soon(2 hours later after introduction), they joined the feeding frenzy which composed the discus, angelfish, kuhli loach, pencilfish and bolivian rams.

My dream has been, and will continue to be, to successfully keep German Blue Rams. I'm wondering, Blue, have you been able to breed them?

They are so beautiful. I had a pair last for a few weeks, and I think not having an older, well cycled tank was to blame. I then had bought 3, one really didn't look healthy to begin with, sort of bloated up and then died. The other two lived on but always hid. One slowly paled and faded away. The 3rd lasted a few more months, but always stayed well hidden, except for feedings. Then he also 'bloated up' and disappeared (I assume death, as I never found his body).

Any idea about the "bloating up"? What happened, was the fish would get very bright and the dark spot would increase in size (appearing that the fish was enlarging? is that possible?)

Tank mates were Black Phantom Tetras and later also Neon Tetras.

Any suggestions?
