Yeah I'm wondering how it's going as well. That's an interesting idea, are they going in and around and through the pipes yet?

Tanks going great. I found convict eggs sunday! Yes it seems certain fish do use the tunnels and certain levels. Im sure they will more once the tank is established. Right now im finishing up the cycle so im doing water changes to keep everything safe so once its done im sure they will adapt to the aurroundings more. The breeding pair dont let any fish use the bottom level of the tunnels lol. Some of the other convicts, smaller females like the 2nd level and are often in therw. The jewels stick to the corners of the tank wherw therw is rocks and plants
