So...what happened to the African biotope? Also, it looks like there's been some tank changes as well (saw what looks like a pair of 75s in a previous post), can you give a run down of tanks and stock lists? inquiring minds and all that.
basically the afer was preventing all non bichir existence-

the 75g’s were used to separate the afer and large bichir from the smaller fish - and i needed the 120g for my lei while i was waiting for 400g’s to get finished-

i’ll be putting everyone back into 120g minus the afer / large bichir

2- leaf
1- jewel
1- big eye / ornate cat
1- nile
1- green
1- lap
1- poly poly
1 - six banded - sexti (spelling)
1- moke
1- del

- afer - 75g - homeless

bigger bichir in 400g system - with overflow monster

i intended to make one of 400g for them but got a little arowana crazy here...

The evolutions of this bio tope -

still 100% africa - living in 125g

the leaf fish getting along strangely-

wanted to get these guys in the big tanks with my Leichardti - turns out he’s not a bichir fan / so he lives in their with an Oranate -turns out also not a bichir fan…. was chewing on my fat head earlier 🤦🏻

all seem ok for now sub 12” minus big endli 16” was scratching the ISH outta my acyrlic with protruding jaw bone (old healed injury from ramming top) he’s in a bare 75g

future- after more shuffling all will go to 280g or 150g Cube -

goes to show the wisdom that rattles around here about them, goes to show it rings true -

after taking out the fat head he promptly assumed the spot on the peak of the wood in the middle of the tank 🤣

so he lives in the “angry” fish tank 😆

congo took a hit - 2 leaf fish - these guys have been troopers and favorites - one on his side in QT tank - and my 9” Del -

did 50% water change as usual - only thing i can think of is i added too much or no seachem safe

doing another 50% water change now -

a bass in a neighbor tank acted funny too after w/c

we had 1st big rain of the season…. i dunno - odd 🤷‍♂️
