Good hint fishybusiness ;)
I m close to add the Pearl, then for apistos it will depends mostly on what is available in my LFS(s)... unfortunatly not so much choices here in apistos :(

It's amazing how LFS can give you some totally different advices haha same store: one guy is telling me yep 1 pearl is ok due to his adult size, my tank, my target stock, having an interest on what I want to do ... another guy (same store) was like .. ho you can put like 4 5 pearl in that, stock your tank lets go haha .... another store was more like : "tell me what you want, I will sell you whatever it is, like Oscar.. yeaaaah go ahead :P I dont give a s... on your stocking idea or your tank size" :P

Thanks for sharing the great Apisto info 'fishybusiness'! :)
I am seriously considering getting back into keeping another group of those colorful and feisty little Cichlids.

Chtiklim - I'm really loving just how measured and systematic I'm seeing you are, in setting up and stocking this aquarium. Careful, we can see your previous experience peeking out! :P
I think this is going to be a really great aquarium, and I'm excited to see what Apisto species you wind up getting.
Please send pics!

Haha that won't prevent me from surprises ;) ills, unwanted bacteria etc , a too much stressed guy or a fish self-convinced to become a Che Guevara trying to ride a revolution; or like for example I discovered an intruder in my tank today ... a snail running on glasses, probably introduced through plant roots. A fish tank is always a "so far so good" feeling but ... ;) That's why it s captivating actually.

Finally have a couple of bolivians (not a single guy), and a couple of Borellii (LFS does not want to sell me additionnal Borellii females, he wants to sell them exclusively in couple.... I will wait the end of his batch if it remains some remaining females...).
Borelliis are nice looking fishes, changing colors on each interaction (blue, yellow, sparkling cheeks and returns to faded colors sometimes), curious guys that come to check my hand in the tank or directly come to eat right on my fingers ! but still youngs and still having a doubt if LFS has been really good in sexing M&F :P

Schooling guy I m waiting a bit to increase if necessary.

Still sticked in mind to my single Pearl (Even if watching so much empty spaces temptation is there to put a couple M/F, this tank is like producing so few nitrates !! but the tank won't handle a trio of Pearl so... harassement expected if a Peals couple only, means single Pearl as a result). 196L tank everyone is saying me ...guy put a couple or a trio in that, what do you need !? 200USGall to do something !!?! haha :P

Patience... Having floating plants is ok but reduce the growth rate under so still sparse.
