In tank shots of retro pls
I'll see if I can catch him out. He likes to hide back in the back away from me, won't even eat in front of me! But, I know he eats cause he has a nice little pellet belly. All have eaten except the Palmas Palmas sadly. The 2 Delhezi each took out a zebra danio the other night, I was surprised by that.

The stock is going to be:

1 Black Arowana
1 Ornate
1 Retro
1 Palmas Palmas
1 Teugelsi
1 Weeksii
2 Delhezi
~10 Discus

Fence Fish

1 Flagtail
1 BGK
10-15 Rainbows

I just don't want there to be massive chasing for the rainbows. May be a bit much, will see where I end up as I go. The Bichirs and Arowana are who the tank is for. Others are add-ons. If the Discus don't work out, I guess I'll have to find a used 150-180 for a nice planted community......GF says I can only have 2 tanks, but didn't say they couldn't both be big!

GF is used to it. 2 tanks is a fair trade I think. Lol, especially given one of them is a 470G monster!

Thanks! I've got a thread rolling in the DIY section. This coming weekend I'll get the stand, and if I can get people to lift the tank (about 500#s) I'll have the plumbing and filtration done.

Flint town!
I know I could, but I dont like the looks for the Lower Jaws. Awesome fish, just not as pretty IMO.
I'm a huge UJ fan but really I think the ljs are alot more diverse in pattern and color then the ujs. But I do enjoy the ujs looks better I don't know less savage I guess. Wife thinks they are cute so easier for me to get what I want...lol
But look at J jaws7777 candy bar, and Congis. They are beutiful!
