What do you think? I have a bunch of labs, that do not stop reproducing. Theres so many rocks in there that at least 5 from each batch survive. Any suggestions?








Identification for blue?

Ahahaha. I had the same problem with my labs. They do breed very easily, and can quickly overtake a tank.

I suggest either venting them and getting rid of the females, sell a certain amount every few months, or get rid of them all together - which is what I did.

Otherwise, the tank is awesome! I actually really appreciate you posting it, because I was contemplating what the mix of holey rock and lava rock would look like. I like it! Did you get you lava rock from any specific place?

Very nice mix, minus so many yellows. I love the shot of the two peacocks - what kind are they each?

I purchased the lava from from my lfs for about 9 bucks for the larger 2 hole ones. No one i know wants free labs lol. I dont know what kind of peacocks those are I have 3 of them and assume there all males because all they do is chase. All the fish get along very well. The calianos chase each other bc i think i have 3 males 2 females or 4 males and one poor female. The bumblebees are probably the wildest 3 in the tank.

Bumblebees are a terror :lol: I tried keeping them, didn't work.

I would post here on our Trading Post or maybe on AquaBid to sell/find a new home for the yellows? I got very lucky and had someone in my area see my pleas on here and offer to buy them :thumb: If anything, maybe a LFS will take them from you?
