Now I need to find another orangish fish which is a little larger.
    lol, I've had the same problem with keeping dwarf Apistos in my 75. Disappearance acts without a trace.

    Why not a group of Bolivian Rams?

    Oh, and FWIW, my newly acquired Rummynose Tetras mostly stick to the mid-upper region. As mentioned previously, I do have Golden Wonders in the tank with them and they've done quite well. Though, that's just more in the mid-upper region. They do get around, though - I've seen them all over the tank.

    I think it depends on the Rummys you end up with and how many are in your school. I have 20 of them and they all seem pretty bold. They compete pretty ferociously with my Black Ruby Barbs, Golden Wonders, Gourami and SAEs for food. I used to be worried about them with my stock, but they seem to have acclimated fine to their surroundings.

    Well to add to the weirdness of the disappearing Embers, I have 2 left which are now happy as larks all out and about in the tank. Not sure what was up with the missing ones, they used to hide all the time and slowly they have disappeared. I have contemplated waiting a few weeks to see if these 2 remain and if so acquiring more. If not I have also looked into Orange Von Rios which would offer a similar color palette with a larger size.

    Rummys are awesome looking, definitely something to consider.

    Red phantoms have a similar color to embers and you already know how much I like Rummy nose.

    I do like the red phantoms, never thought about them! Depending on how these Embers continue to do I may just add more of them. I did acquire them from a friend who was breaking down a tank...so they may not have been in the best of water at the time. The drastic change could have shocked them.

    I have also been really thinking about my plans for the fish room. I am contemplating only doing 2 75G tanks this year and see how that maintenance effects my schedule. I will still buy the double stands and have the option to add 2 more tanks down the line if I chose. I have been bitten by the SW bug again and want to focus some of my energy this year on a FOWLR tank. This is what I am thinking about doing now:

    75G #1

    1 Oscar...some wild caught/F1/unusual morph (i would like another bumble bee orbicularis)
    1 Rotkeil Sev....male F1/Wild
    3 L200 Plecos....I would honestly like to breed them
    maybe some dithers such as Buenos Aires

    75G #2

    Unsure what I want to really do with this one, I am leaning more toward CAs. I am debating on a Synspilum and Salvini along with a nice L# like a L114 or L081.

    I am loving the sound of those 2x 75gs Jenn! Although I do still think you should do 4... the more the merrier!

    I have to recommend Harlequins for your 50g. I have had mine for coming up 3 years and they are my favourite schoolers. Stunning fish and truly underated IMO. They usually school quite tightly IME which I like. I had turquoise rainbows with them for a while and they looked stunning together.

    Oh I will eventually get around to doing all 4 75Gs. For this year though...Im probably just gonna go with the 2 for now and also focus on my high end FOWLR. Im looking at LED lighting and EcoTechs...the SO would kill me if I dropped that much into a FOWLR plus all 4 75s in one go

    I did make a bit of an impulse purchase decision and got a male gold gourami...he looks stunning in the tank and contrasts nicely to the rainbows. I have contemplated Harlequins as well, and also feel their colors will go well with everyone else. I may also add 1-2 more Turquoise, I would like at least 1 more male as I have 4F and 2M presently.

    Did your harlequins stick to the top region? I owned a group years ago which did but it has been a very long time since I kept them.

    The new tanks sound great, Jenn. Looking forward to seeing their progress. =] Also, a SW tank would be great. I'm still a little nervous about those. lol FOWLR is with or without live rock?
