    I posted this years ago under a different account but forgot my user name and password, thus why I have this new account. Instead of starting a whole new write up I figured I'd just post a link to the old one and then add new pics.

    Unfortunately our Oscar passed away last year. He was 15yrs old.

    More pics to come.......

    Thanks mac, yes it was tough watching my 2 boys faces when telling them Oscar died. They grew up with that fish and named him, lol.

    Right now I plan to keep it a cichlid tank. I plan to replace my HOB with a 2nd canister filter. I just replaced the floro tube lights with LEDs from Beamswork. Eventually I want to change it to a planted Discus tank but I won't dive into that until I retire from my current job. That will give me 2 1/2yrs of research and preparation on top of what I've already read. I want to have enough time to devote to Discus so I do it right the first time.

    Since I can't update the old thread, I'll just update it here. Currently the tank was switch over to a planted community tank consisting on Angels, Neons, Silver Tips, Cory's, 2 pleco's (not common) and a few others. These are pics I took not long after I switched the tank over.....

    Here are 3 I took just an hour ago.....

    As you can probably see the tank has undergone a 1/2 remodel. I ditched the $45 rock on the left side to make room for more plants and another small piece of DW. Next on my list is to ditch the Vals in the background for something less invasive and more pleasing to the eye. I'm tired of trimming/thinning every 2 weeks and unclogging my filter inlets of Val leaf pieces!

    Thanks Slap! I'm going to buy another light after the new year (Beamswork DA FSpec). I plan on keeping both lights at first and see if I get any algae issues. If I don't then they'll both stay, if I do then the white/blue EA light will go.

    Agreed, tx for the updates, those little angels are so cute Nice to see the tank evolve as well.

    Just an FYI, but the DA spec looks cooler than the EA 6500k. It doesn't emit a yellow color, you might need a minute to get used to it, but I really like the fspec spectrum. The combo of both spectrums is nice as well though. How deep is your tank front to back?

    It took me a while to get use to the EA 6500k from a flouro, so I'm expecting an adjustment period, lol.

    If memory serves me correct, I believe it's 16 inches front to back.
