    Thanks guys, that's exactly what I wanted to know. Going to check it out, maybe buy a pleco if I find one I like :). At least that's the only thing I am intending to buy, I have terrible self control when I like something enough....

    I've got a 3g little desktop tank and a 22g bookshelf I'm looking to put some endlers into. Haven't had any luck finding some that I liked lately. Was thinking about buying some of aquabid if I can't get any locally, if anyone has some good looking endlers locally I'd be interested in buying some from you 10ish mixed sex group would be ideal. I'd love to get something like this: or maybe a snakeskin or something, I'd love to see what...

    https://m.facebook.com/events/242061249900150?__referral_info_referrer_type=page&__referral_info_mechanism=unknown I've never been to one of these. Thinking about checking it out. Anyone have experience with how/when the bidding happens? It says it starts at 10 but I would rather not show up then and spend all day there if the bidding doesn't start till 2 or something.

    Pictures updated: I built a 29 gallon diy basic sump to drastically increase the filtration and add some flow. Not to mention add water volume to the system and keep the water level constant. The mollies all got new homes and I put in a 11 fish shoal of Columbian tetras to act as a nice little dither school. Very in love with this tank now. Going to add some stems to the back and side soon.

    Fishyfis replied to a thread 36G BF Reboot in Tank Setups
    I bought the largest of their overflow boxes and have been quiet pleased with it. Running a pump that's supposedly rated for I think 1980GPH full blast and it seems to have flow rate to spare. I've seen double red cacatuoides at Dallas north and Rift to reef. Don't think I've ever seen the agassizii though. I rather like the cacatuoides variations personally.

    Fishyfis replied to a thread 36G BF Reboot in Tank Setups
    Just realized your using the same hang on back overflow I put on my 87g recently. You've got the little aqualifter pump hanging back there too? I bought the largest version cuz I'm over-filtering my tank like crazy and wanted a strong flow rate. Are you just using the sponges in it as your only mechanical filtration? I probably went a bit overboard on the sponge change I put in my sump lol.

    What do you plan on moving into it? Be a perfect tank for some apistos or some other smaller cichlids.

    Purigen works great, I like just being able to toss the cheap filter floss. Like that video suggests it's super cheap to get a big bag of batting. A hand full of that stuff is pennies and can just be tossed.

    Love their store and Addison will be about half the drive for me. I hate going into Dallas for anything these days. Traffic seems to have gotten incredibly bad even on the weekends lately.

    My experience getting my water clear after adding large driftwood has been that just doing a couple good size water changes, and running a powerhead with filter floss on it clears it pretty easily. I'd do a 30ish % water change twice a week max, so as not to drastically alter the water parameters too quickly. When I'm trying clear up my water I run something very similar to this for the powerhead/filter floss:...

    I'd probably be constantly worried about any tank I resealed. Looks good, props on the fix.

    I agree, he's a really interesting dude. Won't eat anything that isn't floating (I find it a bit humours watching brine shrimp hit him in the face). Introduced a bit of current for him in the tank and he loves to play around in it.

    If you create an imgur account and upload photos there, they have a little copy bar on the images when you click them in your library. Just copy paste the one for forums.

    I'm currently working on a sump for my 87g planted. The customizability and for my choices ease of regular maintaince is just unbeatable.

    Decided it was time to upgrade the community. South American cichlid community tank. 3 red spot severum, 3 blue acara (will be selling or giving away 1 of each after I'm able to sex a pair) and a red tailed chalcius are the intendedlong term residents. There's a couple mollies and two Siamese algaes eaters in there right now with them.

    Thank you, I thought that would probably be the case. Always nice yo have confirmation before you go out an spend a bunch of time and money on something that's an uphill battle without something else :).
