Love that male at 1:39 - flares up like he knows he's going to be famous ;)

Are your fish all WC? Looks like a dream bedroom set-up.
Fantastic video, the Neochromis omnicaeruleus (Ruti) is gorgeous!
Thanks for sharing! :thumb:
Hi s10jimmy,

You have an impressive fish room. Thank you for sharing the video tour. The 380g is amazing, the rock work is well done.

posting here to remind myself to watch the video later
excellent video s10jimmy....nicely done!! all I can say!! You def. have a sweet fish room and a sincere admiration for cichlids.....cheers!!
Very nice selection of fish and tanks you have there.

Why are you running the tanks without glas tops? Don't you loose lots of water to evaporation and doesn't the electric bill get even higher trying to heat all the tanks?
Thanks guys , :thumb: as for the lids their next . I just switched from all hob's to sponges on a closed loop air system with a linear piston air pump . Next I have to pick up a sheet of plexiglass and cut my own lids.
If only I was single again, I'd have a house just like that :roll:

Thanks for sharing :thumb:
Hi s10jimmy,

Although I have not tried plexi glass lids, I have read others have negative experience with them. Specifically, the plexi glass will sag and warp under the pressure of the condensation.

You might want to look/ask around in equipment section.

Just a heads up.

Yes, plexiglass will sag/warp. If you turn it over every few days or a week, it'll be fine. But it does block a considerable amount of light.
