    Kev you are a good man and a good fish keeper. I can do nothing but applaude your realisation of what you can handle at the moment rather than making yourself either hate the hobby or worse kill animals without the intent. You know enough that you can say OK LETS TAKE A SECOND and relax on it. I respect that beyond belief.

    Just caught up with this thread. Wow, you had such instant success with the apisto breeding! Good work. Sorry to hear about the male though, that's harsh.

    Hey guys,

    Sorry for the 3 month delay in getting back to you. I appreciate all the good sentiments and Gogi, I'm glad I'm not alone! ;P

    It seems as though I've made it to a clearing from the ridiculousness over the last 3 months. I'm still tired, but I'm getting used to it again. I don't think you've ever had stress, until you've had a 3yr old. I commend everyone on here who has already experienced the pleasure. lol Add in a teething baby for good measure and you've got a full course of pain.

    We also just adopted a cat about a week and a half ago. I don't think we would have gotten one, if a neighbor wasn't getting rid of him. Their newborn was deathly allergic so we said we'd take the little guy. He's turned out to be a great addition to the family and one of the nicest cats I've ever had/met. He wants to be around us quite a bit, unlike most cats I've met - pretty dog-like. The only problem is that Max (my mini-dachshund) sees him as his arch nemesis. This is both humorous and tiring, though, because it's a constant battle of good vs evil (the dog usually being the evil one). Hopefully they get used to each other pretty soon (there's already been progress).

    Anyway, now that the stress (I mean fun) of the holidays is almost over, and after having acclimated to a world of pain via aggravating children, the fish are looking much more endearing of late. I'm beginning to appreciate the tanks I have again and getting more concerned scaping again, etc. The cat is enjoying the fish, too, which adds some additional flavor.

    I now have 5 tanks, but I'd like to take it down to 3. Problem is, I have about 11-12 Sterbai Corys in one of the 20Ls and 8 Panuro fry in the other. I also have the 4 BN plecos in the 40B, but I'm going to turn that into an Angel tank. Going to rescape it a bit and add 3 Angels (1m:2f probably black or half-black veils). I was actually thinking about adding the Corys to the 75gal I have, but I'm a little concerned with how many bottom dwellers I have. Visually, it looks like they could live pretty well in there, especially since they're doing quite well in the 20L right now.

    If anyone has any suggestions for that, my 75 currently has:

    2 x Striped Raphael Cats
    3 x Golden Wonder Killis
    2 x Serpae Tetras
    4 x Siamese Algae Eaters
    11 x Black Ruby Barbs
    1 x Apistogramma cacatuoides (the male was eaten - I don't know by who - well, I have a good idea, actually)
    4 x Zebra Nerite Snails
    3 x Orange Rabbit Snails

    Filters: Grech 302 & SunSun 303 (158.4gal filtration)

    AQ Advisor says I'll be overstocked at 115%, but the Cats only come out during feeding or later at night, so you see them about as much as you'd see Otos (though, they do eat quite a bit), and other than that, everything else is typically mid/top-level, besides the SAEs, which tend to rest on anything - plants, driftwood, substrate.

    115% seems like a lot of overage, but the filtration would be at 100%. Anyway, it's either that or trying to rehome them via shipping or selling local.

    As for the Panduro fry... they're actually pretty easy to take care of, because they're still small... but eventually I'll need to rehome them. I already see some rivalries going on in the tank, and they're only about 1/4" long at max.

    Kevin so nice to see you back! Truth be told I don't know how anyone that works and has children can also keep up with the number of tanks you have going.... give you a lot of credit. Very happy to hear about your new kitty addition, sounds like my Smokey who was more dog like than cat, would come when you called, follow you around like a puppy and would be on your lap in a heart beat if you sat down, I miss him terribly. I think you should be able to transfer most if not all of the sterbai to your 75 but it sounds like you will have to sell off most of the panduro fry but let's see what the experts have to say about those. Hope to hear more soon!

    Welcome home old friend, we will have to get cought up!

    The Cat's we have kept over the year always seem to adapt to the big dogs and vice-versa better than the same cats and small dogs for whatever reason. The rot-mix and one cat have an odd relashionship, the cat actualy thinks he's a dog and they love on each other all the time, the cat will tear into a fellow cat if they hiss at the dog,LOL.

    Anyway welcome back!

    Hey Kev, you've been missed.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    So, forgot to mention, but I purchased 3 black veiled angelfish last night from Petsmart (on sale for $4.04ea). I have no idea what the sexes are, but here's to hoping they get along! They're in the 40B w/ the 4 plecos, rcs, assassin snails and plethora of annoying snails, and look beautiful - so glad I got them. I already noticed them pecking at the RRFs, which is fine by me, because I'm getting sick of the floating plants. They grow entirely too well in there and creates a gloom over the tank... it always looks dim. I cleared out about two big handfuls of them last night.

    I'm thinking about splitting the corys in half. Maybe throwing 6 in the 75gal and the rest in the 40B. Then I'll be finished stocking and I could clear out another 20L.

    Since I was using the 40B for plant grow out, I need to do some rescaping, too. I purchased a branch of driftwood last night that kind of looks like half a ladder. I'm hoping it'll look good in there, but we'll see. I'm also growing out a patch of Ludwiga repens in there and going to remove the java moss little by little, until it's all gone. The shrimp are living in there, so I want to be careful with the removal.
