    She's been living with tropicals for nearly 2 years now so guess it is working...and working pretty well, though as posted earlier she's probably headed to a pond in the spring.

    Just because its working now, for 2 years, doesnt mean the fish is thriving at its best...

    I'm aware of the situation~it's the first thing that was pointed out when I came to AC. There have been beaucoup threads about the topic and I've read through most of them and will not hash it out here.

    I'm thinking it came out pretty good. Need to move the heater over just a bit so the cord follows the uptube~and the spongefilter is a bit crooked. Not concerned with hiding the pickup tube. I ran it with the filter on low last night and the sand settled nicely.

    Something odd I noticed with the corys last night after the were moved. The peppered was staying close to the panda, and at several points was facing into the panda sideways, like forming a "T". The panda would sit there a bit them move on and the peppered would follow after and after the panda would stop it go "T" again...I've read somewhere that they do that (or something similar) when breeding...maybe just a coincidence.

    Yep that's breeding. If you had some other peppered corys they would have bred.

    Guess no peppered panda huh? Would that at least mean the peppered is male & panda female or not necessarily?

    Some more notes about the change:

    1. Since I could actually control the temperature with the Stealth I set it at around 74 instead of the 77 on the tetra whisper.
    2. Turns out I have an AC20 and not AC30..that'll be remedied soon.
    3. The peppered is still hovering and chasing the panda...maybe I should get a few peppered...haven't decided about stocking anymore.
    4. The danios are actually acting civilized in their new home, maybe I won't feed them to the pirhanas after all.

    I read an article in Aquarium Fish International (March 2009) about neons, and that they prefer cooler water in the 72 to 75 range (unlike the cardinals which prefer warmer 73-80). All of the current stock it seems like the cooler end of the scale, so I'll keep it in that range.

    Just did some water checks on the new set up..

    Ammonia .25
    PH 6.4
    Nitrite 0
    Nitrate 20

    It's curious, water from the tap is like 7.2 but in the tank 6.4..

    I have liquid test kit for Ammonia & PH but just the dipsticks for everything else. Will get a master kit, just don't care for the color code things, not exactly the clearest way to measure...I saw another kit for sale other than the ubiquitous API~Salifert~I'll ask around to see if anyone uses it.

    Edit~just had to check the search :)
