Hello all, after some great advices form Charles, Razzo, and few other members. I traded in my 75g for a 130g. I can't waite to get it set up. I am thinking to get some fry. How many should I start with once the tank is cycle?

Thanks :D

Congrats on the new tank - look forward to pics.

I agree with Charles on the fry quantity. If $$$ are an issue, you could go with 10 fry and whittle out the first couple alpha males.

What type of front/gibberosa are you interested in?

I love my Kipili fry. I purchased them from Great Lake Tropicals! Being in LA, there should be plenty of places to find Fronts. I looked at all the pics here and on Cyphos.com, and went with the ones I liked best. Good luck!
Too many fish to choose from, too few tanks!

What kind did you end up getting ? If your not done cycling the tank make sure you get a water test kit to check ammonia , nitrite, and nitrate. Check it often and do 10 percent water changes every other day or more often depending on what the test results are. Api makes a good master test kit runs about 40 . you dont want toxins to damage or kill your beautiful new fronts.
