    Tank looks great, but the back IS kinda bare...I'd like to see a gangly, branchy, big ole' piece of driftwood that could fit up against the back glass, or very near it, that would take up that space, with some nice moss or fern tied to it

    I'm pretty much always on the hunt for some long, skinny, twisty root looking driftwood with all kinds of branches coming down. but I'm always worried that when I find something like it it won't sink and I'll have to bother with anchoring it.

    My LFS had something like what I've been looking for, but it's really white and I think it will clash with the darker wood that's in there now. But if I can find some long skinny (I like your word, gangly) branches that I can throw in the back I would be so stoked! I need something to keep them from simply swimming from end to end along the back anyway.

    Yeah, that's what I'm talking about...and if you have to anchor, so what?...you've got plenty of extra rocks, you could just use aquarium silicone on a couple of lower parts of the branch to glue it to the rocks, then bury them in the substrate

    A skinny, "gangly" branchy piece is not going to need much to hold it down

    Too true! I've just had plenty of frustrating experiences in the past, but I'm in a much different situation now (LOTS of rocks!) so it really wouldn't be a big deal, and would look awesome. Very worth a little effort to keep it all down.

    I'm glad too! I just wish I could go back and fix the ones that are all tiny, but oh well. Thank you!

    Oh man, I'm really looking forward to watching that video when I go on break!

    So I think I'm going to get rid of the Nic. She is relentlessly going after the Firemouth, and it's not just "stay away from my home" it's "I hate you!"

    The others will chase once to scoot someone who gets too close along on their merry way, then leave them alone. The nic doesn't let up, and it's directed at the FM, which is my favorite, and no one else. So the Nic has to go... Not looking forward to netting her out *sigh* ...I think I'll try to find some rainbow cichlids to replace her.

    I pulled the Nicaragua and have her temporarily in a smaller tank until somebody claims her. I'm sad to see her go, but there's been a noticeable difference in the behavior of my other fish, and I believe I made the right call.

    Just for fun, here's a newer pic

    And a slight re-scape after taking out the nic (I had to remove most of what was in there to get her out)

    I have 3 in there now, so yes, I think I have room for more

    I'm looking at getting some rainbow cichlids. I want to get 8, then I'll narrow it down to 5 once I can see what sex they are and do 2m & 3f ...too many? I would certainly stop there (and forego any dithers)
