Nice tank and hope you enjoy the return. It is definetely an addictive hobby but well worth it if you put the time and effort in to it.75 Gallon South Cichlid: Tiger Oscar and Jack Dempsey
55 Gallon GT Tank: 1 Male GT and 8 Giant Danio
20 Gallon Long: Waiting for eco-complete planted red substrate that has been delayed 2 weeks due to weather.

Thanks for the compliments,
It's a 60 G tank with 1 of two UG plates plumbed to an Eheim 2028 Pro II. The other UG plate (on the left with MUCH more substrate) is plumbed with a power head.
Current residents include 11 Neon's and 2 algae eaters. I'd like to eventually end up with 20-25 Neon's, 15 Black Neon's and 3-4 Discus.
Upgrades in the near future will be a 2nd light fixture, a HOB filter for general mechanical filtration and a spot to quickly and easily add carbon when and if needed.
Advice always welcome.
