No plans buying any other fish other than diamond tetras, apistogramma agassizi and apistogramma borelli.

Nice video, Nick.
Patience is the name of this game.

Yeah right! I said the same thing before when I had my 55 gallon tank. But later got the 125 gallon tank. So I said, I'm done no more tanks or fish.

I always said I don't know what the fascination is with discus.

When I got my 125 gallon tank, I was thinking of adding more fish. I wanted something big and peaceful, to swim along with my angels. What did I get? Discus.

I also said I don't need any more tanks now that I have my 125 gallon tank. I also said I do not need my 38 gallon tank, so I can sell it. What did I do? I bought a 29 gallon tank and a 40 gallon breeder. Now I'm thinking of NOT selling my 38 gallon tank and just keep it in case my discus breed.

Basically what I'm saying is, with fish keeping, you can never say your done.

Nice. I'd say you go with diamond tetras instead.

I would love to get cardinals but I'm more of Amazon cichlids-oriented.

I can't go over another batch of cories because of fear of another wipeout. Heaven knows I ended up with all 11 killed by the heater even if at present, I don't use heater anymore.

And make sure to resist yourself from buying cardinals for awhile.

Thanks Lainey...

I want some advice from ALL THE MEMBERS out there k? k

I need some help on positioning my plants...I was looking @ katherine's tank and its only a 38 gallon and look WAY deeper than my 55 gallon and it looks much much better. So with the plants that I have right now where do you think I could put them to make the tank look better/bigger/deeper and all around better looking. I suck at positioning my plants so all advice please please please!! Thanks 8)

Nick

Here's my advice: get several tall plants for the background and move the small ones toward the front. Get some larger rocks and make a centerpiece, such as a cave or big mound of rocks. Make a hill or dip with the sand or slope it up to the back or on one side of the tank.
