When you say you want it as a "grow out" tank, I'm a bit confused. What are you growing them out for? Do you have a bigger tank, or one planned?

If you have a bigger tank (or one in mind), perhaps we can help you with stocking that, and then you can stock your grow out to match. Did that make sense? heh

I cant really tell from the video but is there much in the way of caves for them to hide in ? You may want to adjust the rocks a tad so there is places they can get into. Hiding places can help curb a lot of aggression. Somthing to think about when you get your stocking sorted :thumb:
I agree with you about the tank itself.....it looks VERY impressive for a 40g. The rock work is very nice.

Thanx man! Each lava rock is around 11 bucks at my lfs but I got all 31 pounds of it for 7 bucks at my local brick and stone yard!

well what I do is keep the babies till they grow an inch or 2 then I give them to the lfs for 1/3 store credit and start the process over again, I've been doing this for over a year now and have never had any problems
