Thank you

Thank you. I think it's coming together. I can't walk by the tank without stopping to check it out.
I was checking out an article on the Dutch style set ups. I may give that a shot later down the road.

Red Sea CO2 System

I've had this system for about 5 weeks. I got the one that requires Paintball tanks for which I am using the 20 oz tanks. Since I've had this up an running, I am refilling the tanks once a week. Everything I've read states they should be lasting about a month or longer. I've now decided I'm going to start replacing the parts to see if I can get a longer life out of the CO2 tank. I think I'm going to start with replace the regulator. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Smile Baby Kribs

I started my tank with 1 male Krib. My daughter thought I should get him a mate so after a few weeks of searching my local aquatic shops I finally found one. It's been about 3 weeks now and I have my first fry. They are so cute and have such good parents! I'm sure they will probably not be around too long since they are in a big tank with a lot of other fish around. If I get a chance I'll post a photo.

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Thank you. What began as a large Krib family is down to maybe 12 -15. I'm going to get maybe some java moss to put around their cave so next go round maybe they'll have a better place to hide out.

Great. I'll definitely get some. It would be fun to watch them grow.

So we have our second spawn of fry! This time we have some java moss to provide them with some place to hide so maybe we will see some grow a little bigger this go round. I also managed to get a few shots of the fry and parents this morning. They are so cute!

Yes indeed. It is fascinating to observe a chichlid family.

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]
