Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

So yesterday I decided to completely redo my 'baby'. My 75 now looks 400% better. It started off as a pruning, cleaning and adding a new plant. I then decided to take everything out to add a sand bed and reorganize into more of a show tank.

Backing up a bit... I would also like to add that me and Izi have been moving fish around so there are new residents in the tank as well. The reason behind this is that my 55 gal. Cichlid tank exploded and we had to find new homes for 50+ mid to large size cichlids.

I will post pics of the new tank below. The water is still all orange from moving stuff around and leaching of new wood/Indian almond leaves.

Talking

So changes in inhabitants are
  • Opaline and Blue Gouarmi (1 has been moved to another tank)
  • Electric Blue Crayfish (Dr. Zoidberg is from the Cichlid tank and we will monitor how destruct he ends up being. From experience with him in the past we have high hopes though)
  • the Siamese Algae Eater and Raphael Catfish passed away recently (hence the deap clean)
  • a new bulb plant, some rediscovered lilies, and a crypt that we moved

Here's some more pictures of our babies/the tank
