    Wow! I've never been a big fan of apistos, having only seen the A. cacatuoides which didn't do a lot for me. But those panduros are sooo gorgeous! I was going to try breeding GBRs for my next project but maybe I'll look at apistos instead.

    Congrats on your babies -- good luck raising them!

    Thanks Amelia, it's definitely been pretty cool to watch them grow up. =]

    Hey guys,

    So, it looks like I've been missing over the last week or so. Life started slapping me in the face, so I decided to take a breather. Think I'm getting burned out with this stuff, but it could be exhaustion from everything else.

    Anyway, some bad news... My female Apisto panduro decided to beat up my male. He didn't fair to well and I tried separating him, but he soon succumbed to stress and died. Some good news: everyone else is still doing well. The fry seem to be doing well, too, but it's difficult to track them all down. I'd like to clear out the frogbit roots in there, but I don't want to disturb them too much. I found about 6 near the front of the tank yesterday at feeding time. Mamma Apisto is as vibrant and active as ever. She's a good mom, but definitely over protective.

    I've been thinking about consolidating tanks recently... 7 seems to be a bit much at the moment. Not sure if I'm going to follow through or not, but if I do, I'll probably break down the two 10 gals and add the inhabitants to the 40gal breeder and Cory 20gal long. They're just snails and shrimp. I was thinking about adding the inhabitants of the Betta tank into the 40gal Breeder, as well, but I'm not sure. That tank has finally reached an equilibrium I can be proud of. Everyone is doing well, all of the plants are flourishing, there's very little algae and it's generally a healthy, beautiful tank. So... I'll probably keep it as is (now that I'm talking myself out of it right now).

    Anyway, there's my update. Not sure how often I'll be around here, but I'll try to keep tabs on everyone and see how things are going.

    Take it easy.

    Sorry to hear about your male. That really sucks. :(

    I don't know how you do it . I can't imagine being able to maintain more than like 3 tanks. The two I have are perfect, one more would be challenging and any more than that I would be a wreck. I totally understand wanting to simplify.

    We are on the same boat Kevin. Im down sizing too from 6 to 3. Im breaking down my nanos and keeping 3 x 29 gallon tanks. Sometimes it get too much. Especially when you want the best for your fish and tanks, but like you said "life slaps you in the face"(lol good one Kev). Anyways i wish you the best and dont forget, work hard and play harder.
