Very nice clean set up, is that mopini wood, my big tanks full of the stuff, its not one for strong tannings like bog wood, but a slight tint is allways nice to look at,
Nice work

Thnx Barry gibb, I think that is what he called it. It is wide enough so that front is in the sand and touching the front glass. The back is actually propped up on the back glass. I like the way it sits in there. I removed some sand from under it for a make shift tunnel, and there is plenty of space for the fish to swim between it and the front glass as well(another sort of tunnel).

Willow, I do have tea water hahahaha. Doesnt look to bad, but I rather it not stay for too long .

New update on the fishies..... Our lfs (MVPets), had a sale today. Buy one fish get a second of the same type for only 2 cents. Yes I could have went crazy, but since the wife was with me I couldnt hahaha. So I was nice and only got 6 Julii cory cats, 6 Ghost shrimp. Oh and finally a background for the glass.

dwarf gourami…very nice too
really like the background,can you ever show to many pictures….
i think not
glad you get to see your corys… i bought bronze 6 of them,and hardly
see them at all,i'm hoping to by more and get them out at the front
on the sand That i especially put in lol

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

They are very fun to watch, they had me laughing 20 minutes after adding them. As far as being able to see them I dont have many places for them to hide just yet.(not sure I want them to haha) They were kind of pale when I brought them home, the LFS said that they were a little stressed from just being added to their tanks, an hour after I added them they had their spots back and looked great(must be happy).

As far as the Gourami's.... Dwarf I kind of guessed. Been hounding the fish profiles like crazy to find out just what the actual names for them are. I am just guessing... Powder blue gourami and a flame gourami. If you or anyone has any different thoughts please let me know :o)

oh they had done that already in their QT. They had put them in their for sale tanks about an hour before we got there. Glad we got there soon enough they said they had alot of them in stock and when we did get there they only had maybe a dozen left.

The Julii's were my second choice though, I really really wanted the Sterbai :o( but no-one around here ever has them :o(

Not sure what you mean willow ?


Ok I'm sorry. I understand hahaha. I cant seem to find one around here. I can order them online but I never have so I'm a little skeptical. Im not sure I need more now that I have 6 Julii's.

Where in Michigan are you?
I've seen Sterbai at Kee's Pets in Shelby Township, but they're quite expensive.
