It's official, I've run outta room...
 
I've been cycling this tank for a month now and it finally established. I'm starting out with the skunk cories and once they get all settled in and I get some more plants in I'm going to attempt to put Mooch in there. If things don't work out then he'll go back into the 5 gallon and I'll have to get another tank for QT (cue the eye roll from hubby).

And the full tank shot. I know it's still a bit sparse for housing cories.

I'm planning on two more cories for the tank once these guys settle in, I was originally just gonna get three for now and spotted the 4th in the tank lookin pretty bedraggled (you can see they all have short barbels) so I brought them all home and of course I'm keeping a very close eye on parameters.

Uhhh, like 6 but it's a 3rd floor apartment and I think management won't allow much more than that though I guess #7 would be the lucky one, right? Plus we've got a lot of other stuff that takes up room.

My panda corys love my fake driftwood, in fact they won't come out from under it.

Very Nice Tank! I have one Skunk cory that thinks he is a swartz They tolerate him. Am sure they will do well in your care. I have been tossing around the Idea of using a 120gal tank as headboard in bedroom. Girlfriend doesn't appear responsive however. :(

I'm noticing that they have quite the bit of personality, and can't wait till I get to see them with two more buddies.

LOL, that's a big headboard. I'd be afraid of hitting it in my sleep.
