My dream tank, filled with oscars and "small" (jokes, BIG) catfish *sigh*

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Tank is so epic dude, nice to keep up to date with it. So jealous.

Glad your fish survived the transition, must of been a stressful day!!!

Peace always..

If you worry you die, and if you don't worry you still die..... so why worry?
