    I have no exp with those Mandy but your restraint/discipline is to be admired & emulated.

    In other words.. I like the way you're thinking here :-P, Excellent call IMO.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Ditto that! Walking away is the road to take. Do your research and THEN go back and get it if it will work in your tank. Hurrahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

    IMO, i wouldn't put another bottom dwelling species in your tank. And good job on preventing yourself to buy impulse!

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    One of my all time favorites! I wish I could get some more of them. The upside down cats are actually a schooling species, Mandy. So to have them, and enjoy them more, you would really have to relocate your loaches and add around 5 of the cats. They don't need a big school, like the tetras, but they come out and about a lot more when they're in a group. I have 2 in with my Africans, and I really only see them late in the afternoon, and in the evening when it's their feeding time. I love watching them though!
    Oh, and if you do get some one day, make sure that you're buying Synodontis nigriventris. The other types of upside down cats can grow too big.

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Sounds like you might need to start a second tank??? If you can make it work, that's one way to have additional stock you want without it causing problems in an already-established community. You can build the second tank around its own compatible stock, just as you did the first one.

    Congrats on the willpower, by the way!

    20 gal. high: planted; 7 white cloud minnows, several RCS, 2 blue shrimp, 5 Amano shrimp, several snails; Azoo air. 65 gal: planted; 6 rosy barbs, 6 yellow glofish, 3 red glofish, 3 zebra danios, 5 white cloud minnows, 3 dojo loaches, 6 crimson spot rainbow fish, 12 large Amano Shrimp, several snails; AC110.

    Oh man mermaid. If my house was bigger I would have more. I already have three! A 55g community, a 10g dwarf puffer, and a 1.5 g snail tank.

    Oooh! I'm looking at these for my 65 with a Severum and pair of kribs if I can kick the cories out into another tank!

    I don't really want another fish I never see though... Kuhli's put me off nocturnal fish.
