    That would be pretty epic! You could have a pretty large school of angelfish in a tank big enough for BGK.

    Awesome!! So glad that your resealing worked! Would you do it again for another large tank at a reduced price?
    Rock hunting, eh? Be careful, when they decide to run, they can really make a break for it! Bring a big net!! :D

    Never knew BGK's were South American. That would be a pretty awesome tank!
    So how did it go? Does the 90 hold water?

    Awww :( I'm sorry. Well that just gives you another excuse to make another tank! ;)

    I can imagine with colors like that, they would be expensive. But they are really impressive. To hell with a biotope if you can throw something that beautiful in there! Hope Taz's answer is what you're looking for! I've got my fingers crossed.

    Haha! Well if he does it you are more than welcome to do it!

    I never knew angels could be that beautiful. Discus are my favorite of the SA cichlids, but those things are making me rethink that. I'm astounded. And I also see why you want to break the biotope.

    I'd ask about the buffalo head and congo tetra. Getting rid of the ctenopoma sounds like a good idea if you go with the angels. The only things I've heard about them is that they are aggressive.

    Oh okay. Good to know. Heck, none of my fish have ever had live foods. Except that one time I saw a koi eat a mosquitofish whole. Both were going after the same piece of food. Guess who won.

    Haha! There is nothing that says this has to be a strict biotope! Would you get them in place of the congo tetra?

    Lol! Mr. Knife is in rehab. Recovering from a guppy addiction?

    What about the butterfly fish? I remember copperarabian saying she was trying to get it off of live foods, too.

    I would think you would want to put the most difficult to work with in first and deal with their problems (like the African knife and the guppies) and then add the others in. How long until you feel comfortable with the buffalo head in the 90 gal?

    I would be pretty nervous in your place, too. I know when I set up my next tank I'll be a jumble of nervous/excited. Just tackle things one at a time. Which fish are you going to get first?

    I couldn't eat one of my fish. Not even the koi if there was a food shortage. They're pets! "Fish are friends not food!" lol

    I don't blame you for being nervous. It's a big tank, but we're here to help with advice where we can give it and a shoulder to lean on. Just take it slowly. I'm sure you'll do wonderfully! :)
