Nice tank!

By the way, where did you get your driftwood?

Well the two pieces on each end I got from petco which is Mopani wood I believe, I have lots of problems with those. I have had several pieces that I had to fight fungus.The one that doesn't stand up I have had to boil bake and boil some more and I finally got it gone. Now I think it is starting to come back again. So I might have to do the process over again and hope it works this time. The large piece of driftwood was giving to me by a freind.

That's awesome stock. Put much thought into the rest?

In any tank with a PH relatively close to neutral (6-7.7 or so) wood will grow fungus. If you attach moss to it, it'll help.

Really didn't know that. The ph in that tank is 7.4. As for the rest of the stock. I been wanting to add some Botia histrionica. Then something else that I am not sure about. I really like Bolivian Rams am kinda thinking I might get a pair of those. Not really sure though. Another fish I REALLY like is Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlids just not sure if they will work with my parameters ands the loaches I want plus the tetras? LoL basically I have not made my mind up completely.

High PHs might still grow fungus... I know it's true about aquariums under 6.0.

Parameters are. 25 or less ammonia, 0 nitrites, 5or less nitrates. PH 7.4 Temp is 78. Any suggestion for future fish would be great and much appreciated Thanks!

I got off subject with this question so I asked this in a different thread under "Choicing fish for my 55 gallon"
