    Default Tanks, Tanks, and More Tanks

    So I've decided to start a journal on here... mostly to keep track of my randomness and thoughts lol.

    Little breakdown of what I have:
    I started with a 55 back in october that I got off CL http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aqua...d.php?t=104350

    Recently that tank has become a 75g tank, stocked with 10 Parva Rainbows, 5 German Blue Rams, 10 Sterbai, 2 Calico BN Pleco, 5 Platy, and 2 Otos - pictures to follow over next few days

    Well in February I was able to talk the better half into allowing me to do a "shrimp only" 10g tank
    -that has now become a 10g RCS and Chili Rasbora tank - not much has changed with that, except my RCS had a major die off the past 2 weeks - few shrimp a day dead

    In May, my better half's father was going to use a double 10g tank stand as scrap metal, well I saved it and added two more 10g tanks, they originally housed the sterbai (recovering from barbel damage and raising 4 babies) and the other housed the 2 BN plecos
    -well now the top of those two is housing 2 Borelli Apistos and 6 orchid endlers
    -the other is housing 2 more BN plecos (1 super red, 1 calico) and 7 Endlers, I am waiting on determine the exact type, they are either Snake belly or a cross between a peacock endler and a endler #2

    So as you can see, I have been adding a lot lately. I hope to slow down and start breeding some of these species.

    Now that the intro is out of the way... this weekend was fun and productive.
    -German Blue Rams laid eggs again
    -Found at least 8-10 babies from the unknown type of endler
    -Worked on the stand for the 3 10g tanks

    Just talked to AdrianHD - one of the bigger names that deals with Endlers.

    Based on photos he believes I have Orchid and Snake Chest Endlers - the snakes are the ones who I have the babies from

    10g Tank, Red Cherry Shrimp, Chili Rasbora and two sponge filters (each rated for 20g)
    2013-07-17_21-15-05_984.jpg

    10g Tank, Super Red BN Pleco, Calico BN Pleco (both growing out until they go in 75), and 6+ Snake Chest Endlers
    2013-07-17_21-14-53_670.jpg

    10g Tank, Pair Apisto Borelli, 7 Orchid Endlers
    2013-07-17_21-14-40_194.jpg

    The poor male apisto keeps getting put in his place by the female, she really is evil. Hopefully once he starts coloring up she'll take a liking to him

    I may eventually clear out the RCS tank and do another pair of apistos or something similar to the other two. Right now it's kinda a mess, but the chili's love all the tall surface plants
