  1. Hi Victor. Did you get my earlier message? My system crashed partway through so not sure if completed the send.

    I saw your YouTube video - great setup you have going there.

    Your planted tanks - what level of effort are you investing? I have a 4’ 120 G and am looking at options - another SA setup or possibly a planted tank, so was interested to understand how you have them set up I.e. CO2 dosing, fertilizing schedule, substrate, lighting, water change schedule etc

  2. Hi Victor. I got an e-mail saying that you had p.m.'d me and my mailbox was full. I have cleared it.
    Thanks for your part in making yesterday such a pleasurable......stress-free day. It was definitely the best day that we have had since I have been helping our on the computer end of the auction.
    Enjoyed seeing your fish's amazing how many tanks you have squeezed in such a small area.
    Thanks again, George

Fish Room Album

I keep most of my breeding groups in biotope tanks. I move pairs or breeding groups to special tanks to spawn and raise fry. I also take full advantage of Ziss & Marina water circulating breeder boxes. African Cichlids are what I breed mostly but have gotten more interested in catfish - corys & BN plecos in the past 12 months.

    I think you're ok with apistos. But double check if they're on the CFIA susceptible species list. If they're a susceptible species but listed as a pet aquatic animal then you'll be exempt from...

    Fx4 should suffice for your setup. The options on the media out there are a plus and the quantity you can store is a bonus. You mentioned the power head moving water for you so your set.

    You can try a SA biotope tank. A big tank for big fish is nice. But more and more of my customers are going from big-tank-a-few-big-fish to big-tank-with-hundreds-of-schooling-fish. 180g is the...
