    So on November 10 of 2015 I had my tank torn down, which for the past 9 1/2 years I had kept an elongatus piranha. Seriously, the definition of a species only tank. After the tank been torn down for about a month I decided what I finally wanted to do with it and begin the search for all of the items I would need. First things first, I decided I wanted a planted community tank. However I had not decided what fish were going in it yet and I knew I could get my cycle started just by putting a few plants inside the tank and getting the water parameters straight. I'll start posting some pictures of the equipment that I purchased; and what the tank look like before when it was just getting set up to what it looks like now.

    Carib-Sea Eco-Conplete, and thanks, like I said, it was just set up on the 10th of November, so its developed...quite a bit. Just now getting around to the journal, and slowly leaking the pictures I've taken over the time period. Thanks for the compliment!

    Happy holidays to you and AC

    Currently there are two German blue ram cichlids, one striped Raphael catfish, one round tail Betta, two oto catfish, and two Siamese algae eaters. I'll probably get another Pleco. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Your SAE and raphael will get pretty big, 5-6" or so, and have a pretty good sized bioload, so I wouldn't add much more....you could up the oto school, they're social and do best in groups of 10 or more.
