Couldn't get the money together fast enough to setup another tank for Rams.. So we pulled the receipt and traded the Bolivian ram for these.. At first I was afraid the Betta would draw the line on these guys, but luckily they eat side by side fine.

Hierarchy Update
Gymnogeophagus cf. gymnogenys "Arroyo Yerbalito" has been demoted on the dominance factor and superseded by Geophagus brasiliensis on account to Braz passing Yer in size.

Betta is still most ignored.

I can't wait for my T. Pasionis to finish coloring up.. I'm so excited to see the full beauty of this guy!

All the long plants are fake and short are real. This morning I had an epiphany. My CA/SA cichlids are going to get a significant size and faster than I can upgrade the 56 column tank setup to a larger one in time.

So...... My 125 gal with Africans got gutted.. about 100lbs of lace rock removed. Along with
M and F Johanni's
M and F Metriclima Msobo (Deep)
M and F Auratus
Obliquiden Thick skin
Red tail sheller
Kenyi
M Auratus
Rare Labidochromis
L. Trewavasae
Red top hongi
Chewere

Moved everything in this setup to that newly emptied 125.
I kept..
Julidochromis Transcriptus
Julidochromis Marlieri
Neolamprologus Cylindricus
Neolamprologus Brichardix2
moved them to the 56 column, and with trade credit from the Africans brought home..
N. Pulcher (Dafodils) x2
Neolamprologus Cygnus
to add with them.
