Been a couple months. Take is about 5 months old now and doing good.

Same fish in it with the addition of 3 Otos about a month ago to help control the algae with the Flagfish. I do about 15-20% water change weekly.

Any suggestions for new residents?

Looks like a nice healthy tank!

I'm not a big fan of decorations either...but you did a nice job...all I think it needs is a background to pull it together...

I'm thinking of putting some cory cats in but I don't know if the Flagfish will tolerate them. They don't like the otos if they are around the bottom of the tank.

I like your tank. The colors are refreshing.

New fish in the tank. 3 baby Micky Mouse Platies. They are about a 1/2 inch and big enough to not be eaten by any of the other fish. I guess I had enough cover in there for them to grow. I didn't notice them until just recently. So if the male is orange and the female blue I wonder what color they will turn out to be.

Still running

Been over a year since I've posted on here. Tank is still going good. It survived a move. Have lost some fish and added some since then. Platies just recently got a disease or something 3 of the 4 died within 2 days, no other fish affected. One of the clown loaches had Ich when it was newly introduced to the tank. Aquarium salt and 86 degree water took care of it. Clowns will eventually move to a 120 gallon when they get bigger.

Had a bad carpet algae outbreak a few weeks ago and ended up taking all plastic plants and rocks out, letting them sit in the sun for a couple days, rinsing them off and putting them back in after a few big 50% water changes and gravel vacuuming. So far so good. Current inhabitants:

1 Platy
2 Clown loaches
5 brilliant rasboras (been in tank since beginning)
1 Australian Rainbow (been in tank since beginning)
2 African dwarf frogs
2 Chinese algae eaters
1 small Labi cichlid
1 Opaline Gourami
1 Neon gold barb (been in tank since beginning)

The cichlid was a rescue it was going to die in the tank it was in so I took it knowing they are usually more peaceful then other cichlids. So far no aggression issues but my tank also has a ton of hiding spaces, caves, and plants.
