    Ahh man, I'm sorry to hear about all the losses. I was really hoping that Jack would pull through. =/

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    Thanks, I was a little sad at first but am ready to move on. These fish have really helped me get through some tough times. I have other pets but diving into fish keeping really set me free.

    Ha ha. I'd like to try and get mated pairs this time. I loved my nicuragua so I want them again, 4-5 juvies. I also like Geophagus- earth eaters. I saw on a local forum a guy has f2 red humped earth eater babies for 3 bucks a piece, so 4-5. I guess I would need sand substrate for them. I'm not really sure how hard that would be to keep clean.

    Sounds like you have been thinking about this :o)
    Are you going to break down you tank and start from scratch, just in case it was some contaminant that got in the filter?
    And I love geos. I have a jurupari. He was around 4 inches when I got him so I have him on gravel substrate and he gets along fine. Baby geos, however, probably need sand.

    I see you have a TOTM award. Do you still have the tank shot that won? or do you remember what month and year you won for? was it of your cichlids? I'd love to see it. And of course, we expect picts when you get your tank reloaded. :o)

    6-24-12 Planted tank, took a year to grow. It looks alot different now. I cut back on the hygros. Crypts dwindled down and spread out some. Java ferns are monsters now.

    I remember that one now. Very nice tank.

    As for your new tank - with the aggression issues in your cichlid tank, is it possible that stress finally got to them and that's what eventually send them into a downward spiral - made them susceptible to any protozoans lying dormant in their system? Only mentioning this as i know geos are very gentle and non-aggressive fish - just something to keep in mind when you're picking tank mates for them. Wouldn't want you to end up in the same situation as last time.
    But clearly, you know fish and know what you're doing so I'm preaching to the choir.

    Yes that was probably the case. Maybe single species MFF harem would work better.
