    I know how it works.....if you don't post for awhile on BCA, then everyone assumes your tank has crashed Well, no crashes (knock wood), but I have changed things around a bit. After months with live sand, I am back to bare bottom and will NEVER, EVER put anything in the bottom of this tank again. I also was running a 2217 and an XP4. Well, I've put in two sponges and disconnected the XP4. As soon as I have the nerve, I'm going to shut down the 2217 and just go with the sponges. With 17 fish in a 90 gallon, I was cleaning out the filters every two weeks and if I didn't the fish suffered. It's amazing how much crud and crap and mystery stuff fills up the filters.

    Okay - onto the fish..........

    This is the closest shot I've been able to get of the corys "grooming" my favorite little runt heckel.

    If I ever catch the crayfish trying to groom the fish, I'll start to get nervous The cory's also clean and groom the cray as well. S/he seems to really appreciate it. Guess they scratch that spot s/he can't quite reach

    Woah!!!! Those look great. My filters plug up every month too. Don't exactly know what all the crap in there is ......mung, bung or my fishes lung. Whatever it is it's disgusting. So with no canister filters in there are you going to up your water changes? BTW Love the orangey one. What kind is that? Post #2 top pic.

    Ummm..you know that John guy you met? There's one of your fish that meets his request...
    Hand it over! Post number 5. Fish five.
    Sold!! .lol. This was a for sale thread right? Kidding...
    Very nice. Don't take the canister off until your sponges are seeded well and run a couple sponges and alternate the squeezing. Don't squeeze for awhile.
    Also you need 125 gh to have nitrification. So keep buffers incase ph slides with the switch over.
    Your home to monitor this week so that's great.
    Did you set up the heckle tank ?
