Some vids of my oddball tank with large and very small fish.
 

Thought I'd post some vids of my unusual tank. Yes, it is overstocked. I bought all these fish as babies when I set up the tank in 2007 and haven't purchased a single fish since. The most unusul part of my tank is the variety of fish which breaks the "rules" of much fishkeeping advice. I have tiny fish an inch long hanging boldly with fish 6, 7 even 11 inches long. A few oddballs in there as well. Also, many of the fish are, (in just little over a year), larger than most books say the max size is. Finally, click in the last link for a shot of one of the most amzing eartheater cichlids I have ever seen.

Here's a list of fish with some video links at the bottom.
