any thoughts on this?

butterfly fish sadly are gone - think 2 eating and one jumped 😔 - was probably bad idea to add fish to a potentially hazardous situation on a sunday before the work week...

these are two different types of laps obviously ya? gotta learn to sex them....

got in here today for a deep gravel vac - too much decor housing nitrates....

fish very unhappy as i took out all decor.... kinda want to remove stuff so i can see fish -

the few smaller fish appreciate the cover though as the Afer picks at any non poly fish -

the ornate cat is a log! cannot get good pic 😔

afer is 12” easy -

fat head moke is biggest and a thick log....

i may be missing a poli - the palmas , green nile bichir?, and poli look all similar-

new wild endli seems to be fitting in -

count :
palmas-
poly poly -
lap - 2
ornate -
green bichir -
endli -
weeksi -
fat head -
afer -
ornate bag catfish-
leaf - 2
jewel cichlid -

good job keeping on keeping everything "local". Since you aren't afraid of big fish (afer knife!), have you thought about a Distichodus of some sort? You have a lot of bottow dellers in there.
