when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have

Okay ~ I will post some here!

This is what I use to have from what I have now ~


Current tank 125 gal



Traded in for baby Fronts that are pretty big now 55 gal.




Now I am, once again, bored! Every three or four years I want to start over. I DO cry though when I sell/trade my wet pets.

Now I want a very colorful community tank with small schooling fish. I think. I want to keep my Leleupi though! I have to research that.

They are the two yellow ones in the photo. I love them! Not to mention they were quite expensive. I had four but they are jumpers and I found them dead behind the tank. But I have had these for almost 4 years.

Welcome!
Nice avatar and nice fish.

I love discus, but I'm not nearly experienced enough to try them. (Plus, I'm not going to unless I can put them in at least a 80 gallon tank.)

As far as tankmates- You're stuck with other Tanganyika cichlids, and catfish that tolerate the high ph.

They live in the same pH as my now community tank does. 7.6. I am done with cichlids for a while!
