Stressed Severum moved to the 90g as he wouldn’t leave the gold or turquoise alone

90g planted tank holds a wc female Heros Notatus Rio Negro and a male Heros Severus as the main attration. There as also 2 silver angels, several tetras, 2 stripped rafael, a spotted rafael, a yoyo and a candy stripe loach and a pair of breeding BNP. Plants inlcude Crypt Wendetii bronze and dwarf sag which hopefully survive the male sev's pruining. Extra angels in the tank picture were rehomed to another aquarist.

She is definitely the tank boss. There has been some chasing but nothing serious, yet. Hopefully they will settle down together.

Lots happening in the fish room. I was able to tag team a fish order from Imperial Tropicals. I received a Chocolate cichlid (Hypselecara temporalis), another Liberifer, and 2 WC L104 juveniles. The original H.L. and the H.N. were moved to the 220g with the SD and the Turquoise and Gold were moved to the 120g. I also added a trio of juvenile Geophagus Brasiliensis, a pair of silver angels and a female albino BNP to the 120g.

Update pictures of the 120g inhabitants. Angels tried to spawn on the large rock but the green sev chased them away and ate the eggs.
