A couple random pictures

Here are a couple of fish pictures. Excuse the poor photography!

The new Jack Dempsey. He's (or she? I can't tell) is about 3 1/2 inches and eats like a huge fatty. Last week he went through about 35 guppy fry in an hour, so I tried him on five smallish feeder guppies. He devoured one of them, and has made good friends with the other four.



Here's the newish ram. That fish will not hold still. One of the female swordtails is sneaking in the picture.


This is the best picture I could get of the male krib. He *hates* the camera.

It's lights out for the fishes now, but I can take some tomorrow. I wish I had some moon lights so I could get some shots of the kuhlis roaming around!

Very nice pictures . Your krib is very handsome! Two very nice photos of kribs in two days! Your ram looks fat as does the fish in the photo with the ram. Is she about to give birth?

The ram is a little chubby I suppose, but they had just eaten! The swordtail is very pregnant though. I've only ever seen one swordtail fry in that tank before because the killies do such a good job of eating them.

Here's the community tank (excuse the angle and horrible water stains):


And here's the Jack Dempsey tank. Kind of spartan looking, and there's that giant sponge filter I've got seeding so I can move it to a guppy breeding tank I'll be setting up in a few weeks:

The kribs facial expression if you could call it that always remind me of a character from the old cartoon series FAT ALBERT.

Looks great Jim! It's good to see a full tank shot, thanks for posting it up :)

Do you have any problems with the fish destroying the plants?

The community tank doesn't have any fish that destroy plants, but the water lettuce tends to get annihilated by the filters (that tank has two HOB's running at full blast so there's quite a bit of surface movement). Luckily it grows like crazy in my other tanks so it's easy to replace.

The Dempsey doesn't have any live plants except for water lettuce. He doesn't eat it, so it does pretty well. He actually spits it out when he accidentally eats some along with a pellet. All of his other plants are fake, but so far he hasn't really done any digging. I'll see how it goes as he gets bigger. Eventually (probably this winter) I'm going to get a 55g or bigger for him (I really want to have a pictus and a school of giant danios with him). I haven't decided what's going to go in his tank after he moves. It might be some schools of community fish, but I also might do a single leopard ctenopoma.

Before that happens, I've got a guppy breeding tank to set up, a 10g hex to cycle and stock (any ideas?) and a 20 long to set up. The 20 long is either going to be shellies or a river tank. I can't make up my mind.
