Woo-hoo! Amelia's new 120g!
Yaaay! My new 120g 5-footer turned up over the weekend, as well as my 4x new Sunsun canisters. Severums and pals are loving their news digs.

Congrats on the new tank glad to see you got it OK
That driftwood really helps give you tank a really nice look
I'm looking forward to following your threadIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Thanks mommie and Cliff! I would like to change the background to black and I will be rehoming some of the plainer Severums in a few months so I only have 2 or 3. :) And I do love the driftwood, it's been sitting in my bathtub soaking for about a month so I think the boyfriends pleased it's finally in the tank, hehe.
Stock is currently:
- 5 Severums (1 Super-red, 2 half-red, 2 gold)
- 1 Firemouth
- 2 T-bars
- 1 Yoyo Loache
- 3 Angelicus Loaches
... I went into the store to buy some loaches a few days ago as a wanted something active to add to the tank, since the cichlids are pretty slow and lethargic. Asked for 4 Yoyo Loaches and when I got home realized that 3 of them are Angelicus Loaches! So I'll have to catch the Angelicus and take them back for more Yoyos when I have time.120g New World Cichlids ♦ 65g South-East Asian Planted Community ♦ 30g in-the-works ♦ 15g Tanganyikan Shell-Dwellers

Man.... why didn't I do a sev tank?130g: 7 Angelfish, 1 Bolivian, 12 Neon Tetras, 14 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora ? Ghost Shrimp
I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

Hehe, I don't think your neons, otos or shrimp would have lasted very long! That's why I have a community tank as well. Had to have both aspects covered.

This is a very nice tank! I agree with the heater comment maybe go with inline heaters. For the background I would paint it. I saw a cool paint job somewhere done up as a gradient with the bottom being black then progressing to dark blue through light blue the higher in the tank it got. Looked awesome though. Gave a lot of depth.

I love the new tank and the sevs look great. I have a Hydor inline heater attached to the canister filter on my 120g and love it.When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Thank you Crispy! And thank you Mike for the tips. :) I tried to find inline heaters but they aren't available in new zealand yet apparently! And I looked into painting the tank but thought that might damage the value should I ever want to sell the tank -- the gradient thing sounds awesome though. I was thinking of just spray painting the other side of that paper background black. That way I can still use the rock side if I want. I need a black bg on my 65 community too.
Edit: missed your comment. Thank you very much mommy. I do wish I could find inlines. :( if I was really desperate I could get them shipped from the states.
