  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

    Thanks
  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 room....it's amazing how many tanks you have squeezed in such a small area.
    Thanks again, George

Small fish room, 24 tanks - various sizes. Inside the house (1) 40 - Breeder + 2 show tank 1 Fluval Venezia 190 L & Fluval Venezia 350 L

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.

    My thought as well George ... after seeing Jody's pics @ the BBQ I might go in that direction too with my 75 G biotope. My problem is I am not into water changes twice a week. Good luck Jody.
