sorry for the crappy phone pic..
back in Nov. i picked up this 75gal tank from a buddy (FOR FREE!!!) he already had it established for Malawi's. he had about 10 Electric Yellow Labs, an Electric Blue (i think, it died 2 days after transport) and a big guy he and i can't ID. Like i said about the Electric Blue i had all but one of the Yellows die. so i was left with one Yellow and the unidentified guy.
so after doing some more research i found that i should have cycled the tank a bit. after doing so and having my water parameters ok i searched out some new fish. i am lucky enough ( i guess) to live near "That Fish Place", so i went and brought home 4 new fish, a Bumblebee, a Maingano, a Colbat Blue, a Demasoni.
everyone was doing reall good, til my alge started to grow and i tried a lights out day and came home to a dead Demasoni. that sucked but i decided that i had too much blue in my tank anyways so i didn't get another. instead i went to my LFS and picked up some Red Zebra for cheap ($5 ea.). they are doing so well i then went and got more Bumblebees and Yellow Labs ( at the same price hahaha). i also got 2 plecos to help with the alge.
so after 3 months of having the tank this is where i stand:
4- Yellow Labs
4- Red Zebras
1- Colbalt Blue
1- Mystery fish (i posted in the forum for the id of this guy)
i'd like to bring both the Maingano and Colbalt Blue up to 4, and possibly get another species thinking a white fish of the malawi.
i do however really like a lot of the peacocks and haps, is there any way i could add one of my fav of these to my stock??[/img]
