My 29g FOWLR
 
I had to start a small nano to house my frog fish. Well about the same time I was able to grab my pnather grouper and add him. Of course the next day I came across a Coastal Toadfish and who could resist?

Thank you GG, I hope you like the one I added. I was thinking you might like it.

Yes, I do! It took me a second to realize there was a fish in there; it blends in so well. But it's so adorable. (I told a friend that once you start thinking fish are adorable, you know you're obsessed, lol) :D

Well the title says 29g fowlr. I've had him for over a year now. I know pretty much everything there is to know about the panther. I removed him from my 75g reef tank as he finally got big enough to eat large silversides, this was polluting my reef. As I said I set up the tank for my 2 frogs. At about hte same time I was able to nab my panther (who was headed to a friends house) and continue enjoying him in a predator only tank dedicated to these types of fish. The tank gets 80% water changes a week. Has 800gph flow to keep detritus stirred so my skimmer, rated for a 150g tank, can remove it from the water. Also includes 60 hermits and 200 snails for celanup and solid waste reduction. I got that panther when it was a 1/2", it is now a little over 4". Austin has hundreds of thouasnd+ gallon tanks as the amonut of millionaires continue to climb. Thank Dot Com and PC manufacturers for that. I know my panther has a welcoming home in a 2,500g tank whenever I am ready to part with it.
