just saying hello
I currently have 2 aquariums. both are on the smallish side
first tank is my 180 gallon community
24 tiger barbs
12 dwarf rainbows
2 clown loaches (3 died due to an ich outbreak)
1 rubberlip pleco
1 redtail shark
second tank is a 160 gallon w/100gallon sump
currently in process of cycling but stock will be:
12 yellow labs
6 albino socolofi
6 cobalt zebras
6 red top afra (jalo reef)
6 cuckoo cats (syndontis multi's)
cichlid tank should be stocked by month end
Ok not small tanks to most people, however its a downsize for me as i used to have an 300gal and an 650gal tank. I could not remove those giants from my basement when i moved so i sold with the house.
You are correct about the "small" size of your tanks LOL
Welcome to the forum!
Welcome to the forum...we'd enjoy some pics of your "smallish" size tanks, when you get a chance!

Oh yeah, those are small tanks. Welcome to the AC. Besides algae wafers, what else are you feeding your rubberlip pleco? It might just be to early (got him last week) but he doesn't seem to like cucumber as of yet.
